Aug-15-04  FintrySham: NxE5? could the game not have continued from here? Crafty?

  Chessical: <FintrySham>:19....<Nxe5> 20.Rxe5 Bxf5 21.Nxf5 Kh8 (21...Bf6 22.Qxg4+ Kh8 23.Re7) 22.Qh6 Bf6 23.Re7 looks convincing.

  GrahamClayton: The declining of the gambit pawn by 2....e6 seems to give White too much central play.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <GrahamClayton> Yes. Some gambits can be declined without harm, but this isn't one of them.

  perfidious: I've a hard time believing that Alekhine actually lost three games to this schmuck, but it happened.

<FSR>, <Graham> The only time I ever faced the Wing Gambit, it was a sideline which was mentioned in Chess Horizons, c 1982: 2.b4 cxb4 3.c3.

After I accepted the pawn, I was eventually allowed to play ....d5 without hindrance, got the better game and won (White was a friend, who was about 2050 USCF then).

Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Note White's monstrous 8.5-.5 score against 2...e6:

Incidentally, two funny traps in the Wing Gambit, one for each color: K Shirazi vs J Peters, 1986 and I Romanenko vs Bezuglov, 1969. I fell into the latter in an Internet blitz game once.

Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Hmm, in reference to my prior comment about 2...e6, I see that the players of the Black pieces (mostly fish in simuls) were grossly outclassed by the White players (Alekhine, Marshall, Tartakower, etc.).
Sep-20-11  lost in space: Of course it is possible to not accept this gambit without any disadvantage for Black.

  FSR: <lost in space> Hmm, good point. I actually thought 2...b6 failed to 3.bxc5 bxc5 4.Qd5, but now I see that is not altogether sound . . . .
Jun-09-15  TheFocus: From the blindfold simultaneous exhibition in Paris, France on February 1, 1925 at the Petit Parisien. Alekhine scored +22-=3-3 to set a new blindfold record.

The opponent here was a team from Groupe de Joueurs isoles.

See <La Strategie> 1925, pg. 29.
