Sep-22-04  InspiredByMorphy: The earliest game in the database involving 3. ...f5 . Whites Rook sacrifice is strange.
Sep-22-04  percyblakeney: My silicon friend thinks white is slightly better after 11.d4 instead of the not very successful rook sacrifice.

  tpstar: Are we sure this is a win for Black? White threatens 15. Re8# and 15. Bxd6+ Ne7 16. Bxe7#. 14 ... Qe5 loses to 15. Bxd6+ Qe7 (15 ... Qxd6? 16. Re8#) 16. Bxe7+ Nxe7 17. Qxf3, while 14 ... Nxe1 falls to 15. Bxd6+ Ne7 16. Qxa1 (16 ... Nxc2 17. Qe5). What's the winning line?
Sep-22-04  acirce: It is certainly a win for White in the final position. Black is lost after 13.Ba3 already. Not too easy to defend the position after taking on a1 but in any case 12..Nge5 was a bad mistake. Plausible candidates: 12..g6, 12..Be7, 12..Nce5 (because then 13.Ba3 Nxf3+ 14.Kf1?? is certainly impossible)...
Sep-23-04  percyblakeney: Yes, the final position is actually won for white, one shouldn't look too much at the given score, I suppose... Fritz thinks black might survive after taking at a1, one line is 12.Nxc7 Nce5 13.Ba3 Nxf3+ 14.gxf3 Qd4+ 15.Kh1 Nf2+ 16.Kg2 Ne4 17.Bxd6 Qxd6 18.Nxa8 b5 19.Bxb5 Bb7 20.fxe4 Qg6+ 21.Kf1 fxe4.

  Honza Cervenka: The result is definitely incorrect. 11.Nb5 is not a strange sac but excellent shot. Lovely miniature!
