Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-16-05  TigerPawns: ouch that hurt
Apr-07-06  Medical Director: It hurts me that Joerg Roscher gave so quickly. It is true that after 10...Kxd7; 11.Ne5+...NxN; 12.Qd5+...Ke7 or Ke8; 13.QxNe5+...Kf8 and 14.000 white has the better game but still there is a lot of fabric for the scissors to nick at. What am I missing?
Apr-10-06  Cyphelium: <Medical director> <What am I missing?> That black is a piece down?
Apr-12-06  dakgootje: Guess this is something that could happen to a lot of people...
Jan-21-09  Katu: Reminds me of the Queen Trap Line of the Budapest Defense, Fajarowitz Variation. Maybe Black wanted to play that but 2. Nf3 crossed his plans.
Oct-18-14  mrfuddington: Hmmm, there are some interesting lines here with 7...Nc5.

8.exd7+ Kxd7
9.Ne5+ Nxe5(9...Ke8 10.Nxc6 Nxb7 11.Nxd8)
10.Qd5+ Bd6 and black is alright.

8.exf7+ 8...Kxf7
9.Ne5+ Nxe5
10.Qd5+ Kf6
11.h4 h6(11...kf5 f4)
12.Bg5+ hxg5

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Does 7.Nd4 also work? If 7...Nxd4; 8.Qxe4 defends c2 and keeps material. If 7...Nc5; 8.Nxc6 attacks the Black Queen. Just wondering.
May-09-17  sneaky pete: You're right, 7.Nd4 .. wins a minor piece and should win the game. It's the solution for modest people. 7.e6 .. is more forceful, it wins 2 pieces in this game.

3... e5 is the rightly forgotten Schnepper Gambit. Its main idea is the hope that after 4.dxe5 Ne4 5.Qd5 Bb7 6.Qxb7 Nc6

white will panic: oh dear, he hreatens ... Nc5 winning my queen, and plays 7.Qa6 .. trying to get the lady out in the open.

The stem game NN vs Schnepper, Leipzig 1948, went 7.Qa6 Bb4+ 8.Bd2 Nc5 9.Qb5 Bxd2+ 10.Nbxd2 a6
