Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-22-04  caballos2: 4...Nf6 and then d5 looks better for black, though he still has some traps to avoid. yes, i am the first to kibitz!
Aug-22-04  mahmoudkubba: I can not see any reason why black returned its bishop to f8. Any other mistake the black did please tell me!? well I am the second to Kibitz am I??
Aug-22-04  Eatman: Ending to this game sort of reminds of the famous Morphy-Count Something game :)(which came 20 years later). About Bf8, sure it looks horrible but f6 loses to Ng5 fxg4 Qh5+ g6 Qf3. Perhaps Kf8 is a try but that looks ugly too.

  vonKrolock: The acceptance of the Pawn 'b2' is too risky; von der Lasa proposed 6...d6 as improvement for Black, advice followed later by Anderssen, Zukertort, etc; what cannot be proclamed as the refutation of the gambit, for then White remains whith nice offensive perspectives even so: 7.a3 Ba5 8.b4 Bb6 9.Qb3 Qf6 10.Nc3 Nge7 11.Bb2 Ne5 12.Ne5 de5 13.Kh1 0-0 14.f4 etc, as in Tarrasch-Riemann, Leipzig 1883
Aug-22-04  xiaolin: hmm <> today has piked weird names for the opening game and player of the day /♘\
Aug-22-04  xiaolin: this is kinda like the evans gambit gone wrong /♘\
Aug-22-04  gondooley: Just a suggestion: Maybe this and the other games with 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 could be all grouped together under 'Scotch Game', rather than being lumped in with other 'King's Pawn' Games?
Aug-22-04  gondooley: Oh, what the hey - while you're at it create a 4. Bc4 Scotch Gambit category! :)
Aug-22-04  azaris: <Eatman> It's a common attack pattern when Black neglects development and leaves his king in the center. For example, see Portisch vs Bronstein, 1969.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why you castle!

  kevin86: This game reminds me of the Morphy Opera Box game in Paris,also, (I think 1858).

The perfect symptom of premature attack is quick retreat.

Aug-22-04  Calculoso: Woohoo! The Danish Gambit! Or transposition at least. I used to use this opening all of the time with much success OTB. Two pawns for big lead in development. Possibly unsound against better players but fun to play in any case.

Apr-06-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 13.Nxc7+! ... too easy :)
Sep-21-06  sandmanbrig: Holy cow. What an awesome game.
May-03-08  IntoTheWilderness: Man... I love this game! I've looked it over for the past couple of days and I love white's transpositions (scotch game -> italian game -> Danish Gambit). Great game.
Oct-06-15  The Kings Domain: Nice attacking game.
