Jan-20-05  CHEG: Why not 9...fxe6?? 10 Bg6+! hxg6 11 Qxg6+ Ke7 12 Bg5++

  tpstar: <CHEG> You got it, except after 12. Bg5+ Black has 12 ... Nf6 which loses decisive material to 13. exf6+ Kd7 (13 ... gf 14. Bxf6+) 14. fg. Therefore if 9 ... fxe6?! best play is 10. Bg6+! Ke7 11. Bg5+ Nf6 12. Qf4 wins.

Notice if 9 ... Nxe5 White should play 10. Nxg7+ and avoid 10. Nxd8? Nxg4 because the Nd8 hangs (11. Bg5 f6).

Mar-20-06  McCool: <CHEG> <tpstar> if 9...fxe6, then 10. Qa5+ g6
11. Bxg6 hxg6
12. Qxg6+ Ke7
13. Bg5+ (pins queen. If knight gets in way, then takes it with bishop)

  tpstar: <McCool> That's a very nice line which wins cleanly. Note if 10. Qh5+ Black could try 10 ... Ke7 instead, and now 11. Bg5+ Nf6 12. exf6+ wins, because 12 ... gf 13. Bxf6+! Kxf6 14. Qh4+ skewers the Qd8, otherwise if the King moves White plays 13. fg with a Discovery on the Queen. Looking again at my line (9 ... fxe6?! 10. Bg6+! Ke7 11. Bg5+ Nf6 12. Qf4) Black has 12 ... Nbd7 which holds; here White should play 12. exf6+ and if 12 ... gf 13. Bxf6+! again. So your move 10. Qh5+ wins for White, as does 10. Bg6+. Good job. =)

  Honza Cervenka: Josef Rejfir was much stronger player than this game may suggest. Try J Rejfir vs Flohr, 1931 for example.

Przepiorka vs Rubinstein, 1912
M Lowtzky vs Rubinstein, 1912

  kevin86: Black will soon be marched to the scaffold.
Oct-07-10  CapablancaFan122: 7.. Bxc3+ followed by 8..Ne4 might have been better for black.
Oct-07-10  David2009: Instead of 8...Bf8?? 8...Qc7! seems to hold the fort:
