Dec-18-05  THE pawn: you've got to admnit, this game was absolutely fantastic!
Dec-18-05  notsodeepthought: "Fantastic"? Possibly. "Game"? Probably not - I doubt that the above was actually played. Prince D. was reputed to pay chess pros to compose brilliant wins, which he would then take credit for (the wins, that is, not the payments).
Dec-18-05  THE pawn: You've got to admnit, this COMPOSITION was fantastic!

Long live royal money lol.

Feb-13-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: When 2 princes duel, no draw is possible.
Feb-16-07  Laci: I am devoted to Latvian Gambit but it seems to be quite obvious that this was a "created game", starting from 12.Qg7??. Why not the simple 12.O-O ? Then after 12.Qg7?? Nxc2+ 13.Kd1?? leads inevitably to checkmate or at least to the loss of the queen, while 13.Kf1 guarantees the draw (13. - Qd3+ 14.Kg1 Bxf2+ 15.Kxf2 Qd4+ 16.Kf1 Qd3+ etc.
Mar-19-07  Judah: What's so implausible? Both Qg7 and Kd1 look good on the surface. We don't know how strong a player Von Marlozan was.
Mar-25-07  Judah: Whereas, if the game was created, the composer should have removed the obvious slips.

  FSR: Not many know this, but Prince is a huge chess fan. His song "Nothing Compares 2 U" is an homage to the incomparably brilliant play of the other Prince, Andrey Dadian of Mingrelia.
