  Sneaky: You gotta love Blackburne!!
Jan-03-04  patzer2: Legal's mate is always a pretty finish!
Jan-04-04  John Doe: what happens if he captures with the d pawn first?
Jan-04-04  BiLL RobeRTiE: then he's lost material after Qxg4.
Jan-04-04  talchess2003: <what happens if he captures with the d-pawn first> if you mean, capture on e5 before the knight, then white has: 10.... dxe5 11. Bxf7+ Kxf7 12. Nxe5+
Jan-04-04  patzer2: <John Doe> After <talchess2003>'s 10.... dxe5 11. Bxf7+ Kxf7 12. Nxe5+ Ke8, what follows is 13. Nxg4 winning a piece (Knight can't recapture 12...Nxe5 due to the double check).

Most annotations probably came from Blackburne's book. One can get a paper copy (not the original) of his book here: https://www.amazon.com/Mr-Blackburn...

Nov-08-21  auldoxon: a flawed gtm evaluation: 4.d4 is probably even better than the text move 4.Bc4.
Nov-08-21  auldoxon: d4 is a questionable opening move. No points.
Nov-08-21  Schwartz: That's like the Nimzowitsch 1. e4 Nc6 2. d4 e5 3. dxe5 Nxe5 4. f4 Ng6 line I was curious about. I guessed the open a7 g1 diagonal was good for black, but here d6 has been played, so what's questionable about d4?
