  Honza Cervenka:, GM Slavoljub Marjanovic was born in 1955. He did not play this game. (Or he did not play it in 1946 at least.)
Mar-23-05  hsbsitez: How is that not a mate? I do not see what white can do...
Jan-15-06  Necessary Truths: It is a mate. Why would you think it wasn't?
Sep-01-07  wolfmaster: What a weird game...
Sep-01-07  Silverstrike: <Necessary Truths> Perhaps the # was missing.

  mjmorri: An excellent example of why White should refrain from playing 1.e4 unless prepared to confront the Sicilian. Also an excellent example of why White should refrain from drinking before playing 1.e4

  FSR: A pretty pathetic game by White, but given that he was only negative nine years old at the time, he deserves to be cut some slack.

  sleepyirv: <FSR> Negative 9 is a very tough age. A lot of growing pains during that time.
Jun-22-12  King Death: The pre natal kid had a tough day here but I can't say that I'd have done any better.
Jan-06-13  waustad: This is the same mating pattern I ran into in NN vs William Austad mentioned in my profile. I was unaware of this game until today, but was quite aware of the white square weaknesses.

  sea7kenp: 6 g3??? seems a lot like a "Helpmate" Move.
