May-12-04  InspiredByMorphy: 10. ... Ne8 would have guarded the d pawn which white promptly takes. Black is up a pawn, why not defend?

  tpstar: <IBM> Double check (ha ha) your board - Black played 10 ... 0-0 so the e8 square was unavailable. The plan was probably 9 ... d6 10. Bxd6 Bg4 to protect the Pe5 (11. Qb3?? Qxd6), but also threaten 11 ... Nxe4 hitting the Bd6, then 11 ... Ne7 and 12 ... 0-0, but White spoiled all that with 10. Ng5! 0-0 11. Qxd6 making 11 ... Ne7 impossible, moreover 11 ... Qxd6 12. Bxd6 loses the exchange (12 ... Rd8 13. Nxf7 Re8 14. Ba3). Powerful play by White.
May-13-04  InspiredByMorphy: oops your right tpstar. I looked at the move after black was castled. Long day I guess. Nice analysis by the way.
Nov-25-12  shakman: wow...what a game!.....another game in the opening..... Kashdan vs Newberger, 1924
Apr-06-18  Ibisha Biscotto: neato.
Nov-15-22  catlover: I like the game title's reference to Hieronymus Bosch's famous painting. And like <shakman> said about a decade ago, it is also a great game. Good choice for GODT.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Ah yes, The Garden of Earthly Delights. Close study of that painting before bedtime will *always* result in the most pleasant of dreams. Not.
Nov-15-22  goodevans: <tpstar: [...] The plan was probably 9 ... d6 10. Bxd6 Bg4 to protect the Pe5...>

That may be right (we'll probably never know) but against <10.Bxd6> Black can get a good game simply with <10...Nxe4>. Likewise <10.Qxd6 Qxd6 11.Bxd6 Nxe4>. The pawn on d6 is a dead duck so did Black really come up with a plan that didn't consider that White might want to protect his own e4 pawn before taking it.

<9.Ba3> isn't a terribly difficult move to see and as soon as it's played it's clear that Black is in deep doo-doo. Maybe Black just missed it altogether. If so then I bet his second thought (after "Oh, ****!") was "Why the heck did I just exchange on c3?".
