Jun-17-05  MichaelJHuman: Rxe6 seems impressive to me (I'm a weak player though.)

Would 26...Bxd4 have helped black?

Jun-18-05  MichaelJHuman: Just wondering about Bxd4 still :)
Jun-18-05  mynameisrandy: It seems you typed the wrong move number in your post. On Black's 26th, he doesn't have a bishop, nor is d4 occupied by a white piece, so 26... Bxd4 is impossible. What move are we to look at?

  Sneaky: Surely he means 24...Bxd4, but at that point Black's game is lost anyway, being down a piece and all.
Jun-18-05  MichaelJHuman: Yep, I meant 24...Bxd4. I tried out the position in a chess program (Sigma) I have and it thought black was in pretty bad shape at that point.


Jun-18-05  jaime gallegos: 12. Qxf5 its not playable ?
Jun-18-05  MichaelJHuman: 12. Qxf5, then BxQ I believe
Jun-18-05  mymt: the B is unable to take the Q because...?
Jun-18-05  mynameisrandy: 12. Qxf5 c6 and white loses material.

The bishop isn't able to immediate capture the queen in that line because it is pinned.

12. Qxf5 c6 followed by 13.dxc6 Bxf5 14. cxb7+ Kf8 15. bxa8=Q Qxa8 is interesting, but 13.dxc6 bxc6 might be better and simpler...

Apr-21-08  screwdriver: I just started looking at Staunton Gambit lines for white. I wonder if it puts any fear into Dutch defense players. This game looks nice for white because of the quick early development and good attacking position that develops from it. The pawn was won back quickly!
