Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-19-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Black's pieces looke very "peaceful" in the final picture. :)
Oct-19-06  Karpova: Slous had to pick a Bone with his opponent
Jun-14-08  the jam: 19.Qh8#
Jun-14-08  Nikita Smirnov: Some nice puns by me:
Pick a Bone
Right on the Bone
Tackle the Bone
and
Skin and Bone
Jun-14-08  Sularus: <the jam>

  whiteshark: <the jam: 19.Qh8#> a nice cross-pin
Jun-14-08  tommy boy: "Bad to the bone" is a song of Runnig wild
Jun-14-08  psmith: The losing move appears to be 11...Qxg2. Instead 11... Qe7 (idea Qg7) seems to win (if 12. Bh6 Qh4+ picks up the B).

  Once: A delightfully messy Latvian gambit. White develops his queenside - black doesn't - Black gets stuffed.

A quick game analysis with Fritz 11 shows mistakes on both sides. Fritz prefers:

8. f3 instead of 8. Be2?? "releasing the pressure on the opponent"

8. ... Qd4 instead of 8. ... hxg6?? "a shame that black overlooks this excellent chance"

11. ... Qe7 instead of 11. ... Qxg2?? "gives away a clear win"

12. ... d6 instead of 12. ... Qf2+?

19. Qh8# instead of 19. Bxe7+

Great fun

Jun-14-08  ravel5184: Why not 19. Qh8# ?

  playground player: The Latvian Gambit leads to some truly awful games. Black has to be crazy to try it, right? I mean, it's almost as bad as the Damiano Defense, right? And yet there are folks out there who are devoted to it, and some even win with it. I don't see how.

  whiteshark: For the last time: <19.Qh8#!>
Jun-14-08  natrix75: Bone voyage?
Jun-14-08  wanabe2000: <Once> For many reasons I like your posts. Slous made his "bones" here. Obscure Godfather (for fathers day tomorrow) reference.
Jun-14-08  cydmd: A more efficient finish would be:

17.Re1+ and game over !!

17... Kd8 18.Bg5+ Qe7 19.Qxf8#
17... Kf7 18.Qh7+ Bg7 19.Qxg7#
17... Qe7 18.Qxf8#
