Dec-14-05  DeepBlade: awesome, the Qe2 (aka silent pin) is so easly overseen.
Jul-13-06  nummerzwei: This is a Budapest Gambit reversed, where this is a known trap

  Domdaniel: Blake falls for the Tennison Gambit? Is this 'Songs of Innocence & Experience' or just The Charge of the Light Brigade?
Oct-17-10  chesschampion11: why he played 6...Nbd7????

  Bishoprick: I believe it is also similar to a mate in the Karo-Can. I guess it is similar to many other smothered mates in the opening. Another that comes to mind occurs in the Budapest Defense.

  Phony Benoni: I would like to know the circumstances of this game. Christoph Schroeder, according to his player page, was born in 1959. And Joseph Henry Blake was a strong British player who was never in Brooklyn, as far as I know.
Nov-21-16  PJs Studio: Agreed Phony. I think the player with the black was not the super British correspondence player of the same name, born in 1859.

Wrongly attributed.

  Phony Benoni: Quite possibly, White was either Alfred Schroeder or Mario Schroeder, brothers who were active in Brooklyn during the period.

Black was probably just one of those semi-anonymous NNs who achieve a bit of negative immortality.

Feb-16-20  sea7kenp: While there's "some" logic in 6 ... Nbd7 (protect the other Knight), it "helped" the Mate.
