Jan-17-07  russep: pretty amazing
Jul-30-08  ravel5184: <amtr> You're kidding!
Feb-27-09  dovif: amtr

yes I think this should be a Sunday puzzle with White to play and mate in 2 moves

this is deep

Jul-26-09  just a kid: I would play 21.Bxd5+ just to show off.
Jun-13-10  khisel: Can someone explain 6. ... Nh6?

Is that just a really dumb move or is there a good reason behind it that I am missing?

  Phony Benoni: <khisel> My guess would be that Black wanted to stop 7.Nf7, winning the exchange. In fact, 6...Nh6 seems to be the most frequently played move in that position.

Some players would prefer to just sacrifice the exchange. Morphy once won a game with 6...Bc5, but then he was Morphy.

Jun-16-10  khisel: <Phony Benoni> Thank you, I'm going to have to play through it again - I really thought this was just a ridiculous move.

Again, many thanks.
