  fredthebear: <MissScarlett> You caught FTB in the middle of an edit and the order of appearance got bumped. Yes, I actually read what I post.

(Whiteshark's video link no longer works.)

  al wazir: 18. Rd1# or 18. Be3/Be5#, even sooner.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Good job on the pun, <OhioChessFan>. The gambit is unsound, of course, but if you must play it, at least play 4...Ng4 instead of 4...Ng8.

  OhioChessFan: Huh. <MissScarlett> beat me to it by a couple years...
Aug-28-19  sleepyirv: And let that be a lesson to all new players and patzers: Don't castle into it!
Aug-28-19  catlover: Love the pun! I used to use that shampoo.

I wonder if 13...c6 would have offered better defensive chances.

Aug-28-19  Ratt Boy: Props to <MissScarlett> and <OhioChessFan> for the pun. This game is a better candidate for that pun than the other (which was played by a different "Vidal"). This opening is best used in Bullet Chess, not in any serious game. I guess it's time trouble that kept Vidal from mating on move 18. Or something.
Aug-28-19  Momentum Man: To add insult to injury, Black was down material when he got mated

  FSR: I love me a good castles mate, but it's sad that White did it a move later than necessary. Game Collection: Mate by Castling
