Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-25-04  SamusAran: Some better moves for black: 6...Be7, 6...f6, 6...Ne7, 6...Nd7, or 6...Qe7.

It's true, if I played Black, I would have done 6...Bxf3, but that's because I'm a beginner

Feb-09-04  SamusAran: Actually, i goofed. 6...Nd7 doesn't work.
Mar-25-04  Egghead: This is Meek's only win in the database.
Mar-25-04  ArturoRivera: I think that black should have follow the paris atack and in his move 3 he should have moved the classical g5 in the kins gambit accepted
Jun-15-04  nikolaas: His opponent is Adbor.
Aug-15-04  TheGreatNN: ArturoRivera, you don't think the Abbazia is any good? The main line, 5. ..Nf6 leads to at least an equal position, and even in this game after 6. ..Qe7 white has an advantage but black still has a chance. I normally prefer the Fischer Defense myself but if you're going to criticize the third move in this opening you may as well just say I ought to have played the Sicilian.
Sep-09-04  Whitehat1963: Hilarious!
May-06-05  soberknight: And the Meek shall inherit the king.
Jul-10-05  Caissanist: He has three other wins in the database, but they were submitted under the name "Alexander Meek" rather than "Alexander Beaufort Meek".
Sep-02-05  Averageguy: <who> Both games lead to the same final position, but the game you refer to has a slightly different order of moves and thus the mating position in the game you refer to was reached on move 8, and in this game it was move 7. <SamusAran> I take it you are a big Nintendo fan?
Dec-31-05  DeepBlade: 6.Qe2 seems so obvius to me, thats the reason why I prefer ''silent moves'' or ''quiet moves''. Mate in one is easy to see, and ignoring it wil lead to an loss.

So see this game
DeepBlade - NN

1.e4 e6 2.Nf3 d5 3.Bd3
c5 4.exd5 exd5 5.O-O c4
6.Be2 Nf6 7.Re1 Bg4 8.b3 cxb3
9.Bb5# 1-0

Dec-19-06  puninski: Wow, double check, and one mate !!!!!!
Is that some serious s*it, or what ?!?!

<SamusAran>,
Adbor assumed that a capture is always followed by a re-capture, hence he expected 8.♕f3. I think Meek was looking for this mating pattern with 6.♘g4, and Adbor moves fitted in perfectly with his plan.

Sep-21-16  siegbert: Nice to see meek win. The meek shall inherit the earth!
