  Phony Benoni: Game title has been fixed by the Department of Redundancy Department.

My favorite move of the game is <13.Nxf8+> instead of 13.Nxh8+, keeping Black's king in the crosshairs of the f-file.

Jan-25-12  rilkefan: 10...f6 loses by force. I kept waiting for ...Be7, on move 8 and here, after which Black might be fine. And I imagine 6...Nxc3 before ...Qc5+ would have been wiser.

[Notices 1891.] Oh well, carry on.

Jan-25-12  xthred: A thing of beauty.
Jan-25-12  YoungEd: As soon as I saw 5...♘xe4, I knew Black's goose was cooked! Don't open files against players much better than you!
Jan-25-12  izimbra: What <YoungEd> said. It's an older game but even so it's hard not to critique <5..Nxe4 > and <6.O-O> when <6.Nd5 <some/any black Q move>, 7.Qe2 f5 8.d3> is nearly won for the white side.
Jan-25-12  sevenseaman: Really a carousel of beauties.
Jan-25-12  onthehouse: Exceptional play by white.

Jan-25-12  shakespeare: Thats the reason why I love Kings Gambit - there is nothing like to learn wild attacks if your opponent allows it

A short biography of him on youtube:

Jan-25-12  acme: Why 17. Qe5? Why not the more forcing 17. Qg5+ Kd7 18. Qe7+ Kc6 19. Rf6+ Kb5 20. Qc5+ with mate next?
Jan-25-12  bvwp: Round about move 12, I started thinking "This just isn't fair." Wonderful stuff.

  kevin86: A pair of rooks and a queen against a defenseless king-pretty one-sided.

Aroundandaroundandaround...makes me dizzy.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <acme> Looks like you're right. 17.Qh4+ is also faster than the quiet 17.Qe5, when 17...Be6 gives Black the chance to hang on by his fingernails before having to sacrifice them and almost everything else to delay mate for half-a-dozen extra moves.

Apparently, Black was not into such Skulteties.

Jan-25-12  LoveThatJoker: CG game of the month!

  Penguincw: Interesting how the POTD (Alekhine vs Sik, 1943) and GOTD both end in white giving check to the black king with a heavy piece on move 19, and has black resigning right away, due to checkmate.
Jan-25-12  TVCHESS3JAQUES: Fox Lady (la dama del zorro!) "Z" go Dame of chesboard
Feb-25-12  BlackSheep: I think we can conclude that Skultetys' first blunder was sitting down to play .

I gotta go to the ATM machine for some bread....damn I forgot my PIN number! Some folks got all the luck!

Jan-12-18  Petrosianic: <YoungEd>: <As soon as I saw 5...♘xe4, I knew Black's goose was cooked! Don't open files against players much better than you!>

Yes, good advice. Although oddly enough, Charousek doesn't follow it up as well as he might have. 6. Nd5 is much better than what he played. (6...Qd8 7. Qe2!, and Black is losing a piece).

Instead, White sacked a piece with 6. O-O. It's not bad, but he doesn't get the upper hand right away, either. White doesn't really get the upper hand until 10...f6???

Usually in these games, Black never develops because he never has a chance after the first few moves. It's hideous when he's given the opportunity to develop and doesn't use it. And then wastes the move on a weakening pawn move that opens doors on his king, no less.

Instead 10...Be7 11. Nexf7 O-O, and Black is still hanging in there. Better than hanging in. I mean how often do you see White sack a piece in the King's Gambit, and Black ends up castling afterwards? Very rare. 12. Rxf4 Nd7, continues development. Those two Knights look dangerous, but how does White make anything out of them? I think Black is completely in this game.

<Really a carousel of beauties.>

<Exceptional play by white.>

I'm always amazed how many people will bother to post about a game without having ANYTHING to say except tell us who won.

  chancho: <”All chess experts recognized him as a genius.

He possesses an exceptional theoretical knowledge, his style of play is innovative and original, and he plays equally well in the middlegame and in the endgame...

He is bold and confident in every position, and he is totally unimpressed by authorities.”

  OhioChessFan: Great attack by Charousek, in a game that lasted 19 moves.
Jan-16-18  morfishine: What's a "Skultety"?

The urban dictionary says its a person who does not know when to shut their mouth. Perhaps thats why he was crushed: he refused to stop talking while he was playing
