  Sneaky: D'oh!!
Jul-14-03  Benjamin Lau: What a patzer! :-)
Feb-16-05  schnarre: 5...Qd7 6. Qxg4 Nc6 looks quite playable for Black. Such a lead in development would allow ...g6,...Bg7,...O-O with reasonable compensation for the lost Bishop.
Mar-28-06  Necessary Truths: Is there such a thing as 'reasonable' positional compensation for a bishop (other than in a mating attack)?
Mar-28-06  Jim Bartle: "Is there such a thing as 'reasonable' positional compensation for a bishop (other than in a mating attack)?"

Yes, absolutely. Check Geller-Dreev 1990 for example, where white gives up a bishop on move 11. Or Granda-Seirawan 1993 where white gives up a knight on move 9.

Mar-28-06  Necessary Truths: In the first game listed there, Geller gets two pawns in addition to the position compensation. However, I might buy that second game, Seirawan only gets one pawn of material (at least at first).

What I really meant though is a bishop's worth of compensation purely as positional advantages (as was claimed for this game); and not a B vs 1 or 2P exchange worth of positional compensation.

Of course, you mean <6... Qd7 7. Qxg4 Nc6>

but after <8. Nc3> I don't see any compensation.

May-27-09  YoungEd: Seems like when one plays the Grob, one gambles on a few tactical tricks such as the one here to win quickly. If those don't pan out...
