  OhioChessFan: This Opening makes the Wannabe Gambit look drawish.

  WannaBe: Why didn't black play 9...Qc4# (??)
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Same reason he didn't play 8...Qd4++ or 10...Qd4++ or 11...Qc4++

Why didn't black play 9...Qc4# (??)

Maybe van Wely didn't want to embarrass Schneider by checkmating him in under 10 moves.

Nov-01-15  happyjuggler0: I like that the second move by white is listed as a novelty when you click "find similar games". :)

  louispaulsen88888888: What’s the Wannabe Gambit?
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <louispaulsen88888888>

<Wannabe Gambit> is a serious opening widely known --> Search Kibitzing"Wannabe+Gambit"

Strangely enough Wiki doesn't mention <Wannabe>:

Today it's better known as <Bongcloud Attack>. You might want to check it... --> Search for Nakamura's bullet vids on YT...
