Jan-20-12  Cardinal Fang: Anything but ...Kb8 allows Ra8#; anything but ...Kc8 allows Qa8#. A beautiful and rare example of semi-perpetual check.

  OhioChessFan: Semi-perpetual check. I saw the comment in recent kibtizing and was wondering exactly what that was. I think it's an accurate term.

  Phony Benoni: If Black were really gung-ho about playing on, he could try <26...Qf5>:

Now if 27.Qxf5+ Kb8 White's queen can't get back to the a-file immediately, and if 28.Qxe5+ Bd6 avoids the perpetual. The material is more or less equal, but White's initiative and the Monster That Occupied b6 makes the whole idea a bit too crazy.

Jan-21-12  Calli: <Now if 27.Qxf5+ Kb8 White's queen can't get back to the a-file> But then 28.Nc4 and Black is toast. i.e. 28...Bd6 29.Nxd6 Rxd6 30.Qxe5 Rhd8 31.Rd1
May-27-14  offramp: Göring is given the chance and he plays the Göring, a very interesting line of the Scotch Gambit.

Black plays 8...♗c8-d7

In positions like these I think it is best not to allow ....Na5. So I would play probably Bc3. I don't know what current theory is, if there is any.

16.♙e4-e5! keeping the position as open as possible. (White is already two pawns down, of course, as usual in this gambit.)

Very good; one rook is aiming at a8 and the other at f7.

Black finds the right moves. In this position ...

...Goring makes a long-range perpetual check, his queen moving from h3 to a3 and back again.

Mar-12-15  zanzibar: Well, I'm doing a walk-through check with an engine on these games...

And it appears squandered his advantage here:

The queen should do the recapture. Then comes...

23.Qh3+ Kb8 24.Qa3 Qd4+ 25.Rf2 Qa4 26.Qxa4 Bxa4 27.Rxa4 Be7

and Black is two pawns to the good. (24.Ra2 is too slow, it allows ...Bb5, ...Ba6)
