  whiteshark: Completely strange.

(You wouldn't find 7...0-0???!)

Nov-16-08  lopium: Of course the game is wrong...
Nov-16-08  just a kid: Actually it is right.The rest of Black's games are also humiliating.
Dec-02-08  piroflip: true,,,,,,,,but not quite as bad as this.
Jan-12-09  dovif: That was a great Q sacrifice, what are you guys talking about
Jan-12-09  Kaspykov: look at stats

Niloofar Nayab


Jan-14-09  jackpawn: Again, why are her games in the database? The vast majority of the people that come to this site are far stronger than she is. What makes her special?
Feb-24-09  WhiteRook48: 7... 0-0??
Black was already lost by 8. Nxe7+, but 8...Kh8? makes things even worse
Mar-26-10  ChocolateCakeLover: Strange indeed. Maybe she's nervous.

  perfidious: It is not every day that one comes across a game featuring Ng1 followed by resignation.

Black's TN at move three is not at all likely to gain adherents as an alternative to the tried and true 3....d6, or even to supplant the tricky 3....Nxe4.

  FSR: <perfidious> So you're saying that no one will be "Russian" to emulate Black's play in this game?
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <FSR> Mebbe instead, they'll be 'Roman' on to novel ways to take an early train home.

  Korora: Very fitting initials for Black.
