Mar-18-04  Colophon: mating with a pawn just adds insult to injury!

  kevin86: There is something even more rarer than the pawn mate-when was the last time anyone has seen an interposition of a black bishop at e2?

It was a nice mate!

Mar-18-04  Egghead: This is what happens when you do things by committee. :) 13. ... a4 would have won a piece outright, no?
Mar-18-04  somethingstrong: <Egghead> Black cannot win a piece because 13..a4? 14. Nf6+, and then a slaughter ensues.
Mar-18-04  TheTurk: egghead: no.
13... a4??
14. Nf6+ Nxf6

  Honza Cervenka: By the way, it's another game of Duke Karl Von Braunschweig who played also that well-known game Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858
Dec-13-05  chesscrazy: I just love this kind of checkmate.
Dec-13-05  THE pawn: Ho crap, I was scared, I thought it was Capablanca, not Casabianca!
Dec-13-05  chesscrazy: <THE pawn> I thought that too, and I was like, Whoah Capablanca was on the black side? But then I realized that Capablanca would have not been born in 1855. I only noticed the different spelling after.
Dec-13-05  chesscrazy: Also the (Preti) looked like Reti to me at first. I better get new glasses.
Dec-13-05  humtydumpty: Thanks guys .... Cause i was convinced that it was capablanca till i saw your comments .....

  WannaBe: I think this game took place just a 'little' before Jose Raul Capablanca time.
Dec-15-05  THE pawn: Yeah, 1855 was Morphy's time, not Capablanca's.
May-12-06  SJP: Serafino Dubois is fast becoming one of my favourite players, and I have only heard of him today.

16.Nf6+ -0.53 (16.h3 2.58)
22.Re1+ 26.42 (22.Qc7 #12)

Karl/Casabianca/Preti 7 mistakes:
10...Bf8 2.08 (10...d5 1.27)
11...c5 1.19 (11...g4 0.73)

22...Be2 #10 (22...Be7 26.42)

Dec-05-08  WhiteRook48: Why ...♗e2? I guess Black wanted a funny interposition
Mar-15-13  billyhan: They say "you can't fight City Hall", but here's a guy (Dubois) who fought, and beat the "White-House" (Casabianca).

  Phony Benoni: The same Duke Karl from the "Opera Box" game, Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858. Looks like he was the one who suggested most of Black's moves. It wasn't Preti.
Feb-26-18  Cheapo by the Dozen: I agree with the first (and long ago) comment above. Indeed, the engine now says that the correct followup is an immediate draw by perpetual check.

Black's king has a good shot at running across f6 to hide in the kingside, and lines that cut his escape off don't seem to succeed in winning.

Feb-26-18  schnarre: 26. d7#...talk about insult to injury.

  playground player: Did Duke Karl ever win?
Feb-26-18  Retireborn: He probably mated the Duchess a few times.

  sfm: <playground player: Did Duke Karl ever win?> Certainly: eternal fame from his mastery of the noble art of losing beautifully to notable opponents. And of course this neat game:
Duke Karl of Brunswick vs Prince of Villafranca, 1870

Well played
