Apr-28-08  Guguni: Very impressive!
Apr-28-08  wouldpusher: Greedy 11. ... ♕xa1? was the first step to defeat; 11. ... ♕xh2 keeps the extra piece. 12. ... ♔f7 fueled a king hunt which eventually leads to mate. However, the other alternative still wins for White: 12. ... ♔e7 13. ♘d5+! ♔e8 (not 13. ... exd5?? 14. ♕xh7+ ) 14. ♕xh7 ♗b4+ 15. c3 ♕xb2+ 16. ♔e3 ♕c1+ 17. ♔e2 and Black seems to have run out of checks. 15. h4+ from the text seems to win faster.

Good demonstration of what happens when you carelessly expose your King, grab material with your Queen early, and fail to develop the other half of your board.

Could be a nice GOTD too.

Apr-28-08  itsankush: hahaha..nice to see black king running for his life...Definitely should be the GOTD one day.
Jun-23-09  zev22407: A great chase, blacks king dies on g1!
Aug-08-09  hellopolgar: what a king hunt...
Aug-08-09  YoungEd: <itsankush> gets his/her wish!
Aug-08-09  BAG: that's some rough stuff

  whiteshark: Comparable to Anderssen's immortal game. Göring was a great attacking player, too.
Aug-08-09  birthtimes: A wonderful illustration of Spielmann's King-hunt sacrifice!

One line could similarly be 11...Qxh2 12. Nf6+ Kf7 13. Qg8+ Kxf6 14. Qxf8+ Kg5 15. Qd8+ Kf4 16. Qf6+ Kg4 17. Be2+ Kh3 18. Qf3+ Kh4 19. Qg4#.

Aug-08-09  Marmot PFL: The gambit 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 ed 4 c3 was evidently named for him but is usually spelled Goring. maybe that is to avoid association with the german luftwaffe commander.

  mig55: Goering is the same as Göring...

  Phony Benoni: <Marmot PFL> You can blame it on the umlaut.

The name should probably be spelled <Göring>, but often <Goering> will be used in English publications when the umlaut isn't handy or doesn't display properly.

But we should probably let <whiteshark> weigh in on this.

  kevin86: What a comic games-the pieces fly and the king is chased to the other end of the board. True,white's king is routed also (ok-one square-lol),but only to clear the way for the adverse king to be chased in

I've fiddled around with the position and my rather limited engine and it seems black could go for the win with 12...Ke7. If not, 15...Kf4?? should at least be replaced with 15...Kh6 which seems drawn.

  Chessmensch: Look at the bios of the two. They were both suicides.

  Chessmensch: <Phony Benoni> is absolutely right, but there is also the matter of pronunciation. Goering is pronounced something like purring. The "o" without the umlaut (or without the "e" added in its stead) might suggest goring as in the bull is goring the matador.
Aug-08-09  randomsac: Wow! A very exciting game. Brilliant mating sequence.
Aug-08-09  backrank: Look at the black queenside pieces (including the d-pawn) at the end of the game ... his only 'developed' pieces are the royal couple ;)

Another double rook sac game which had unknown to me so far. Many thanks to the GOTD feature.

Aug-08-09  coseabu: I want to learn the game of chess from the scratch. can anyone recommend any webpage or material text that will be helpful in learning useful openings, defences, and attacks? i will appreciate if the 'free of charge materials' are recommended
Aug-09-09  backrank: <coseabu>: The works by Edward Lasker (not to be mixed up with Emanuel Lasker, the former world champion), especially 'Chess strategy' and 'Chess and Checkers: The way to mastership' are available for free download on many web pages, and contain indeed the material you seek for ... they start very easy, suitable for beginners, and then endgames, openings, middle game strategy, master games as examples follow.

Zzyw...You may be right, I haven't checked your analysis...but please note I wrote "One line could be" rather than "One line will or would be." I just shared a line--of many possible lines--that could lead to a nice mate for White if those specific moves are made...maybe not a wise thing to do from my end... : )

Aug-13-09  Marmot PFL: <Chessmensch> That is what I thought also (pronunciation).
Feb-22-10  dale2222222: 13. Qxh7+ works too

  Sastre: <dale2222222: 13. Qxh7+ works too> After 13...Kxf6 14.Qxg6+ Ke7, White only has a perpetual (15.Qg5+ Kf7 16.Qg6+ Ke7).
