Jul-03-05  Quantzo: Nice. This is in Greco. 8. ...Qxg4 9. Bxf7+ Kxf7 10. Ne5+ or 8. ...Qh3 9. Bxf7+ Kxf7 10. Ng4+. Black's game is lousy after 8. ...Qg6 9. Ne5 and 10. Nxf7.
Dec-01-05  EmperorAtahualpa: Zytogorski needs to be given credit though for his timely resignation. He knew what was going on. :)
Mar-28-06  CitricAcid13: What's wrong with 8. ...Qxg4 9.Bxf7 ... Kf8 ?
Mar-28-06  Oliphaunt: <Citric> 10.Rg1 Qh3 11.Rg3 and the queen is trapped.
Mar-28-06  Oliphaunt: And if 10.-Qxg1 11.Nxg1 Kxf7 12.Qc4+ or Qh5+ wins the bishop.
Oct-19-08  just a kid: This game is too funny.8 moves and he is already lost.
Dec-31-08  YoungEd: Amazing how a seemingly sensible move like 8. ...Qh4 can be such a blunder!

  transpose: <CitricAcid13> what's wrong with 8…Qxg4 9 Bxf7 Kf8 you ask? Well, 10 Rg1 Qh3 11Rh3 wins the queen.
