(1) Sherry,Bob (1812) - Moldovan,John (1812) [C25]
Checkmate Knockout Springfield, NJ (4), 31.05.2009
C25 Vienna Game
Hamppe-Allgaier Gambit (6.Ng5)
An extremely rare reply for me. In fact, my only other tournament try with it was against Ed Selling in the 2006 KST.
[I half-expected 2.Nf3
, the Scots' Gambit.]
or perhaps just "?". [>=3.Bc4
as in one of our many other games. We've now played 104!; 3.g3
; or 3.Nf3
Three Knights' Game]
Pierce Gambit 6...gxf3
; Maybe 5.h3
suggested by Rybka 5...Bg7
is White's best.]
isn't recommended anywhere but it seems like a reasonable alternative to the steed-sac.]
! Renet 7.d4
Forster - Almasi : Horgen 1995]
? Blatny [This line lets Black develop 2 pieces with tempo. >=8.Bc4+
! Nunn; or 8.d4
as in Corzo - Capablanca : m/8, Havana 1901 (0-1, 26) which, now that I think of it, Bob presented to his students a few years back.]
0-1 Kalisch - Hazai : Gold Coast 1999]
/\ d4 but White doesn't have time for it.
was a better attempt. Now I get an overwhelming attack :]
& White resigns because 23.Ba4 b5! will cost him a 2nd piece.
Time left - Sherry 27:39, Moldovan 30:44
Estimated time used - Sherry 14:19, Moldovan 11:06
Longest think by White - 4 minutes for 14.Qe2?
Longest think by Black - 2 minutes for 11...Be5? & 22...Na5 [>=22...Ne5
Rybka /\ ...Nxd3+!] 0-1
