Jun-02-05  InspiredByMorphy: <> This would make a great puzzle of the day. Black to play and win after 15. ...?
Sep-08-06  Holmstrom: Wasn't there anything else for white to do at move 16 though?
Sep-28-06  jbcol: What's wrong with 17...Ng3
Sep-28-06  Starf1re: i don't see a win for black if white declines the knight sac-- 15 ... Ncd4 16) b7
Oct-19-06  sneaky pete: After 15.Qb5? Ncd4 the queen is has no safe square on the f1-a6 diagonal to keep an eye on e2. If 16.Qxb7 Ne2+ 17.Kh1 Nfg3# (or even better 17... Qxh2+ 18.Kxh2 Rh8# - why pass over the opportunity for a cheap queen sac?).

This game was played in 1973 (or 1974; Tony Kosten, The Latvian Gambit Lives!). Kosten declares 15.g3! Qh3 16.Qg2 .. "perfectly respectable".

Jul-01-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Starf1re> After proposed 16.Qxb7? there is a mate in 2: <...Ne2>, <Kh1> and <...Nfg3#>.
May-01-14  Valcartier: Nice game transition from an apparently straight-forward king`s rook grab, to leaving the white queen fleeing from developing pieces. The winning black queen sacrifice on the rook file was an excellent way to prepare a path right to the castled king
Jun-17-15  arloest: White is fine after 14. Qf2!, though, when black has nothing better than to still continue with ...Qh4. I know, because... IT HAPPENED TO ME!! 😧
