Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-11-06  MorphyMatt: Why resign????
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: White doesn't have a lot of compensation for the pawn, but I doubt that he resigned in this position.

  perfidious: It must be that the piece sacrifice 7.Nc3 cxb5 8.Nxe4 hadn't yet been invented, which caused Black considerable practical difficulties, though Stefan Briem came up with 8....d5 9.exd6 Nf6 10.Qd4 Qd7.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <perfidious> Nah, it was known since 1902, and Marshall faced it at Cambridge Springs 1904.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <FSR> Most interesting; the first time I ever saw it was in one of (I think) Schiller's books with Shamkovich many years ago, at a time when I'd never yet played the Schliemann.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <FSR> PS My statement, on reading it back, implied that Briem originated 8...d5 etc-it was actually 10....Qd7 which he was supposed to have introduced instead.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <perfidious> That was how I interpreted it. I first saw the piece sac line in a pamphlet by Tibor Florian on the Schliemann, probably around 1975. I don't think 10...Qd7 was known then; I only learned of it many years later. The only game with it in the database is A Kunte vs R Eames, 2001. Nice name that the White player has there, btw.

  perfidious: <FSR> Now you mention it, I vaguely recall the Florian monograph.

That surname is a beaut-also, when one adds his opponent's first initial to his last name, we've got another gem!

As to Barry-Marshall, that was not terribly ambitious play by White; he seemed to throw it over before he'd really got started.

  FSR: <perfidious> Reames A .... Hmm, I see what you mean.
