Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-01-05  Halfpricemidge: A nice king-hunt; white should've moved 12. Bc4 to prevent black's mate threat 14...Ba6 15...Bh6#.
Mar-25-05  Halfpricemidge: White gobbles a Rook and Bish 19. Kxf7 21. Kxg7 but to no avail.
May-11-05  RookFile: Nice game.

  TheAlchemist: Kurz came up short in this one.
Sep-16-05  Runemaster: "Mr Kurz, he dead!"
Nov-08-05  CeeFoR: Beautiful
Nov-08-05  bishopawn: A thing of beauty is a joy forever, to quote Keats. White's 10th, Nxc6+, didn't help his cause. But the Treybal sacrifices steal the show.

  drleper: Vaguely reminiscent of Smitten vs Prince Dadian, 1896 ;)
Nov-18-11  sevenseaman: Who holds the chessboard when two magicians play it on a tightrope!

  Phony Benoni: I suggested the pun, but maybe "The Kurz of the Walking Dead" might have been better.

At least we won't have to argue about whether Black should have mated by castling.

Nov-18-11  rilkefan: Kurzschluss (short-circuit, quick conclusion) would be a pretty nice pun if we were speaking German. "Trials and Treybalations" also springs to mind. And - well, the original is better anyway.
Nov-18-11  Robed.Bishop: I still enjoy playing the King's Gambit because of the wild games that can result. I will also freely admit that I lose quite a few of the games.
Nov-18-11  chessicle: <Phony Benoni> Ignoring the illegality, castling here wouldn't be checkmate, because the king needs to cover e7. Though perhaps this is also part of your point.

  HeMateMe: Kurz was the out of control Special Forces Colonel played by Marlon Brando in <"Apocolypse Now">.

"His men worship him. They'll do anything for him. He's out there alone, without any authority, doing whatever he wants. Your orders are to terminate his command."

Martin Sheen: "Terminate....the Colonel"?

"Terminate with extreme prejudice".

Thus, the hunt for Colonel Kurz begins, deep into the bowels of Vietnam.

<Terminated with Extreme Prejudice> might have been a good pun, but only people who saw the great movie would get it.

Nov-18-11  Madmartigan: Anyone who plays the King's Gambit, but isn't prepared to play the Muzio (5. 0-0!? in the game line) deserves to be punished like this.
Nov-18-11  ThatsTriflin: I prefer "Alas for Bohumir!" Love the discovered checkmate.

  Honza Cervenka: 12.g3?? was a howler.

  kevin86: White led his attack with his king,that's like a boxing strategy of leading with the chin-especially if you happen to be Jay Leno. lol

  ajk68: Is there something wrong with 10. Bxf4...?
Apr-30-13  hudapri: <HeHateMe> KurTz, not Kurz
