Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-13-03  ivan2kilu: the Queen has nowhere to go. White poses no immediate mate threat, but after 11. Qh6 and 12.Nxf7 the queen is attacked with no safe sqaures and a brutal discovery check
Oct-20-03  John Doe: Not only that... it's check mate if black isn't carefull

After 11. ...Qh6 12. Nxf7 a6(or an equaly idiotic move) 13. Nxh6 d+ Kh8(13...Kg8 14. Qf7#) 14. Qg8+ Nxg8 15. Nf7#

The proper reply after Nxf7 of course is 12...Qxc1+ [trading queen for bishop] 13. Rxc1 Be6[stops discovered attack and opens the rook] 14. Qxe6 1-0

of course all that is irrelevant in lieu of black's loss of his queen.

Nov-23-05  Chopin: What a slaughter!
Feb-13-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Phew ... very embarrasing!
Feb-15-06  svbabu: How about Bg4 for black at move 10?
Apr-06-06  dzanone: Isn't it interesting that the first occurence of the Neo-Gruenfeld Defense in this data base is crushed by Gruenfeld himself?
Jun-21-07  Jake Robertson: Nagy must have cried, that was lightnig fast, mate by 13, ouch
Apr-10-09  WhiteRook48: OK... that was a crushing attack by Grunfeld

  GrahamClayton: The other alternative for Black is 8...♕a5, giving the Queen more breathing space, as in Kotov vs I Pogrebissky, 1939

  FSR: Gee, I wonder why 4...Qxd5 and 7...Qh5 never caught on? Good trick to know - White doesn't want to castle too soon, or 8.h3 would be impossible. Of course, if Black had realized what was happening he would have swung his queen to the other side ASAP (8...Qa5).
