Feb-28-05  soberknight: I think the correct move for black was 9...Kd8!!, which is thematic in this variation of the Two Knights Defense.
Apr-30-07  thesonicvision: black should not resign here!

NxN, QxQ, Nf4!

Apr-30-07  aragorn69: The variation given by <thesonicvision> (11.-Nxd6 12.Qxh4 Nf4) begs for Rybka analysis! Anyone?

Any chance that game might get uploaded to the <cg> database? No question but that it pays to look just a little bit further into a position, which RĂșnar Berg did, and I didn't.

Jul-09-10  nezhmet: 9. ..Kd8 is well answered by 10. d3 with the same threat as in the video so certainly doesn't deserve a double exclam

here is a rybka analysis, 14. d4? is eval 0.00 allowing black a perpetual check later, instead white is unforunately able to untangle the mess with 14. Qf3 Nd3+ 15. Kd1 e4 16. Qe3 and it's about +1.1
