Aug-08-07  pawnofdoom: Wow! what happened here? I didn't see any obvious black mistakes, until the checkmate came. All his moves seemed perfectly normal, like h6, for example, which actually lost a pawn
Aug-08-07  micartouse: <Wow! what happened here?> A typical attack after the risky 5 ... Nxd5. Then White can play 6. Nxf7 or 6. d4 with roughly the same attack as happened in the game.

Theory is undecided on this opening, but Black's real mistakes were ... h6, ... Ke6, and ... Kd6. You simply can't improvise in such a sharp opening - you have to know the line.

Practically speaking, it's much easier for Black to play the gambits such as 5 ... Na5 and get an initiative.

Aug-08-07  RookFile: If you don't know it, you don't know it I guess.... but ...h6 was ridiculous, because it 'forced' white to play a sac that was already possible two moves previous, this time with renewed strength.
Jul-10-11  dadoktor: The mistake is pretty much getting into this opening line known as the Lolli Attack. Allowing this line is huge mistake because white simply wins :D. 5...b5! and 5...Na5 give black chances for equality i prefer the first tho :D

Jun-25-12  e4 resigns: 10...Ne5 11. Bf4!
ES was probably thinking about that game he put in one of his books... Morphy vs NN
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.d4 exd4 5. Ng5 d5 6.dxe5 Nxd5? 7. 0-0 Be7 8.Nxf7! Kxf7 9.Qf3 Ke6 10.Nc3! dxc3 11.Re1 Ne5 12.Bf4! and white went on to win

Unvermutet, wie zumeist,

  sea7kenp: <sneaky pete>, since my German is sub-standard, I plugged this into Google Translate, getting:

"Unexpectedly, as most of the time, the aunt arrives".

Is this right?

Oct-07-19  sneaky pete: <sea7kemp> The Google translation is more or less accurate, but a bit unimaginative. I would prefer something like

Suddenly, like Mack the Knife,
Auntie shows up at d5.
