Nov-11-04  Bobak Zahmat: Super play by black. But could't white save the game after capturing the black queen?
Nov-11-04  akiba82: <Bobak Zahmat> Yes, simply 18 Qg4, instead of 18 Qh8??, refutes the combination. If 18 Qe1?? then 18... Rh2+ 19. Kh2 Rh8+ wins for Black.
Nov-11-04  akiba82: Still, a nice swindle by Black who was lost after twelve moves. What does NZL championship refer to? Perhaps it was a five minute game or something.
Nov-11-04  acirce: <akiba82> NZL = New Zealand.
Nov-11-04  Hinchliffe: <acirce> Could you help me out please? After an opening what do the numbers refer to?In this case(C50) Please, time permittingof course, could you unravel this mystery? Thanks Ulf.
Nov-11-04  akiba82: <acirce> Thanks, I guess the standard of play wasn't all that high in New Zealand in 1911, if that was a game from their national championship!
Nov-11-04  acirce: Hi <Hinchliffe>, there is a code system (ECO) to name different openings and lines of openings like that. In this case I think C50 stands for the initial moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4
Nov-12-04  Hinchliffe: <acirce> Thanks Ulf.Hope life is sweet.

  cu8sfan: <Hinchliffe> To complete <acirce>'s explanation: ECO is an abbreviation and stands for Encyclopedia of Chess Openings.
Nov-13-04  Hinchliffe: <cu8sfan> Thanks friend. Hope your ball club has a great season.
Oct-26-05  geaux82: I doesn't beleive in this game of 1911. Is lesson or such kinds of mate-pattern inventions? Some proof requires this one. Because Championship round?? and White is so stupid, with the Black idiot sitting like a dunce from 6...Bc5 in predetermination. No, this must be invention.

  fm avari viraf: The text move 18.Qxh8?? is a blunder. Simply 18.Qg4 wins as after ...Rxh2+ 19.Kxh2 Rh8+ 20.Qh3
Aug-21-07  zanshin: <Hinchliffe> Click on C50 for more information. It will take you to the appropriate ECO page - in this case Giuoco Piano (C50)
