Feb-24-05  notsodeepthought: After the game, White told Black, an aging gentleman: "Sorry, old Bihn." (well, it's not my fault if the good puns were already taken by
Feb-24-05  misguidedaggression: Bihn there, done that.
Feb-24-05  JSYantiss: Otello, White cannot play 16. Qg6 because he is in check at the time.
Feb-24-05  dbquintillion: honestly, <notsodeep>, i think your pun was even better than's. not that anyone would want to encourage the proliferation of puns on this site. certainly not.

  cu8sfan: Hilarious pun today! And what a thrashing this game is.
Feb-24-05  soberknight: Black could have "recycled" his chances with 12...Bxc3+ 13 bxc3 Re8+ 14 Be5+ Kg8 15 Qd3 Qf6, or 15 O-O Rxe5!? 16 dxe5 Qxh4, and I think Black is okay. More to the point: Black is already ahead by a knight for two pawns, his king is not safe, and the rook on h8 is in trouble. WHY IS HE SNATCHING A DOPEY PAWN???
Feb-24-05  notsodeepthought: <dbquintillion> Exactly - puns? who needs them? No, never (however, just in case, I'll throw one in on occasion).
Feb-24-05  Minor Piece Activity: The black pieces were laden with terror in this game. =)
Feb-24-05  jkiipli: I think that 8...Kg7 was mistake, maybe Ke8 better
Feb-24-05  patzer2: <5.♘g5> enters the Allgaier Gambit.

<8...♔g7!?> The computers initially like this move but 8...Ke8! 9.d4 Nf6 10.Nc3 f3 (10...Bg7 was good for a draw in G Marco vs Chigorin, 1903) 11.gxf3 Bb4 12.Bb3 Nc6 13.Be3 gxf3 14.Qd3 Qe7 15.e5 Ng4 16.0–0–0 Bxc3 is the line given by Kasparov and Keene in BCO, attributing the analysis to Zaik/Korchnoi.

<10...Bb4> is probably best here though 10...c6!? 11.Bb3 c5 12.Bxf4 cxd4 13.Nd5 Nc6 14.Qd3 Bd6 15.0–0 Nh5 16.Bxd6 Qxd6 17.e5 Nxe5 18.Qxd4 is an interesting alternative that starts off with the computers initially giving it as a win for Black.

<12...♕xd5?!> seems to be the losing move as 12...Bxc3+ 13.bxc3 Rf8 14.0–0 Bf5 15.Be5+ Kh7 16.Rxf5 Rxf5 17.Qxg4 Qf8 18.Qe4 Kg8 19.g4 Rxe5 20.Qxe5 Nd7 21.Qe6 was perhaps Black's last chance to hold.

<13.0–0!> sets up a decisive pursuit.

<13...♗xc3> This comes too late as Black is already lost. And no help is the alternative 13...Qc4 14.Be5+ Kg8 15.Nd5! Qxd5 16.Qd3 Qc6 17.Rf6 Qe8 18.Raf1 .

  kevin86: <Minor Piece Activity>do you mean:Bihn laden with terror? Ugh!

White is under check at move 15,so ♕g6 is not legal.

The Allegier gambit is fun-Ain't it?

Feb-24-05  Jaymthegenius: I would really love to send Bobby Fischer over to the middle east, he would find Osama Bin Laden (something we should have done along time ago) AND SNAP HIM LIKE A TWIG!!! One more heroic act by the Great Bobby Fischer!
Feb-24-05  Kingsandsquares: <Jaymthegenius> Only, Bobby Fischer expressed support over the attacks of September 11th so I don't think he would snap him like a twig...
Feb-24-05  Castle In The Sky: Has Bihn, Bihn there done that?
Feb-24-05  Jaymthegenius: Kingsandsquares: We are both french and American! Anyways, How can you be silly as to think the first american world champion, who defeated the Russians, would support 9/11? ITS SILLY!
Feb-24-05  iron maiden: Is that supposed to be a joke, or haven't you read any of his interviews?
Feb-24-05  bugeyes: I believe 21. Re7 is also a checkmate? Please correct me if I've "Bihn" mistaken! Thanks!
Feb-24-05  bugeyes: Oops! I have seen the simple error of my ways. I will now repent. (Nevermind!)
Feb-24-05  soberknight: <bugeyes> There's nothing wrong with 21 Re7, but it forces mate one move slower than the text because Black can block with Be6 and Qe5. Also, it's much more fun to checkmate in a sacrificial attack without winning back material in the end, although a win is a win.
Feb-24-05  MatrixManNe0: And that is why I still love the King's Gambit!!
Feb-24-05  CHEG: 16 Qg6# looks good to me as well.
Feb-24-05  Saruman: <CHEG> White is in check, but to be honest with you I thought exactly the same for a flickered moment as I studied the game :-)
Apr-06-05  dbquintillion: I think that CHEG was actually suggesting that white should show the fortitude to ignore the threat posed by being in "check" and confidently play Qg6 nonetheless. Responding to all of your opponents threats can cause one to lose the initiative -- sometimes its best to just pursue your own plans without regard to the attacking intent of your opponent.
Aug-03-09  Winter: The wandering King...
Aug-03-20  Brenin: Black must have felt overpowered even before this game started. Imagine waiting for your opponent's first move. You glance at the score-sheet, and see "White: Prince Sergey Semenovich Urusov", and then, a line below, "Black: Bihn", not even graced with a "Mr". Giving odds of two names and a royal title, and faced with an opening variation named after his illustrious opponent, it's remarkable that Black survived for 22 moves.
