The Lone Banana: < xeroxmachine: comment on 12... kh8 <So as to guard against the threat 13 Nxc6 followed by Nxd5.> I don't get it :( > You're right. Either Bogo (the annotator) or his publisher's typesetter, or some copier within the last eight decades has made an error. [I ...

The Lone Banana: <Calli---12. 0-0 Ne5 is too powerful. 12.Nf7 is to stop Ne5.> Oops! I totally missed that line. Thank you. However, it couldn't be much worse than the text. In fact, I think I would prefer 13.Nf7 as a *reply after* 12... Ne5 as opposed to 12.Nf7 to *prevent* it. ...

The Lone Banana: <Wow, this person really isn't very good. His only game with Dubois was a 9 move loss in the fried liver!> The fegatello is theoretically unsound, but, perhaps because of this, is often unknown to young players who are otherwise well-prepared. Once shell-shocked by ...

The Lone Banana: Ah, the perils of counterattack when one's king is in the center of the board! Perhaps better to evade the fegatello altogether, or white will fry your liver, as here. May one suggest a pawn sacrifice for attacking purposes with 5. ... Na5 6.Bb5+ c6? If you find yourself in ...

The Lone Banana: Only one game listed, and that one with a really deep queen sacrifice. Who is this guy?

The Lone Banana: <MrMelad:> Thank you for some excellent posts. You might be interested in the following, from another board: "Paul Morphy . . . played astonishingly well as a young man. More than a third of his recorded games are not counted in the calculation of his **85% winning ...
