Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-18-03  Rookpawn: White plays quite timidly, and this is not the spirit one normally sees in a Muzio Gambit.
Oct-28-03  patzer2: If he plays 8. d4, then white is OK.
Jan-11-06  prinsallan: 10 Bd1 is the clencher.
White must sac back here with 10 Bxf3.

Black still has a better position, but it is still a fighting game.

Mar-31-06  TigerPawns: woeful.
Mar-31-06  dakgootje: Not an expert about this opening but SOMETHING tells me white could have played better ;-)
Dec-23-06  Rubenus: Ouch, what a stupid play by white.
For the good continuation, see Shirov vs Lapinski.

P.S. How do I make a link to that game?

Feb-19-07  Rubenus: Shirov vs J Lapinski, 1990
Feb-01-08  wolfmaster: Embarrassing!
Dec-31-08  WhiteRook48: why does Wilson always, it seems, play the Muzio Gambit against NN? One loss should teach this. You'd think NN would fall for this trap.
Jan-13-09  WhiteRook48: wow. awesome NN game.
Jul-26-09  just a kid: Wilson got pawned!

  FSR: Is this the most pathetically played Muzio Gambit ever?
Sep-02-19  TheTamale: To play the Muzio Gambit and then retreat all your pieces to the first rank is a little unorthodox.
