Apr-08-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 4.Ne2? and 8.Qxg7?? No good, my dear Dake.
Jun-25-06  ChessDude33: <Autoreparaturwerkbau> 4. Ne2 is the Alekhine Gambit, Alekhine used it to beat Nimzowitsch in less than 20 moves. But i do agree that 8. Qxg7 is pretty bad =P
Mar-15-07  AAAAron: Dake has the title of IM, but some of his games he loses in a flash, making mistakes that my freind's seven year old son wouldn't even make.

  OBIT: Aha... just watched a 1968 episode called "A Game of Chess" from the second season of the "Mission Impossible" TV series. This is one of the games played by the IMF's unbeatable chess computer. (Yes, I know chess-playing computers actually sucked in 1968. This series never worried much about reality or plot holes.) I'm happy I was able to track down the game, but I see sneaky pete beat me to it, as he demonstrated by quoting a line from the episode.
Aug-01-13  mwic: Please note that the tide actually turns at 7.Qg4
If white is just *compelled* to get the pawn back immediately, 7.Nxd4 Qxe4 isn't hopeless

  sea7kenp: Goodness! Black's g7 Pawn isn't just Poisoned. It's laced with Cyanide!

  fredthebear: "After the White's move 4.Nge2, we enter the Alekhine Gambit, named after Alexander Alekhine, also called as the Maroczy Gambit, because after 4...dxe4 5.a3 Bxc3 6.Nxc3 Black tries to support that e4-pawn, and even though White is a pawn down he has the initiative and has great attacking opportunities." -- Remote Chess Academy video
