Oct-09-05  Whitehat1963: OUCH!! Ridiculous!
Oct-09-05  CapablancaFan: From the moment Fernandez accepted the sacrafice his fate was sealed.
Jan-25-09  patzer of patzers: <CapablancaFan> It's generally accepted that black is worse as soon as he/she takes back the pawn on move 5, and the only game in which black doesn't accept the "sacrifice" on move 6 is also a win for white: Temirova vs Tweddel, 1994

  sleepyirv: <patzer of patzers> Well, you're going to lose your rook and might not get the knight for it and your position is shot. Though you're exactly right you can't let White to give it- though I certainly enjoy playing the Italian game because of the opening of the day.
Jan-26-09  patzer of patzers: <sleepyirv: Well, you're going to lose your rook and might not get the knight for it and your position is shot.> I'm sorry, but which game are you talking about?
Premium Chessgames Member
  sleepyirv: I'm sorry, I'm talking about the general situation of Black turning down the sacrifice.
Jan-26-09  ronaldducalang: Fried Liver Attack?

What kind of a name for an opening is that?

Jan-28-09  patzer of patzers: <ronaldducalang> A very descriptive name.

<sleepyirv> Besides losing the rook, is the position really that bad?

Premium Chessgames Member
  sleepyirv: <pofp> In my experience (which isn't saying much), yes. Black is going to have to castle Queenside and while White is a bit underdevelop, Black's Kingside is going to be a mess.
Jan-29-09  patzer of patzers: <sleepyirv> I've played around with the board, and I did find that black has a very hard time playing on after declining the sacrifice. The knight on d5 is a liability, too.

  sea7kenp: Actually, Black made a mistake with 8 Bc5. If you're going to survive this opening as Black, you *must* protect the Knight on d5 with, either 8 ... Ncb4 or 8 ... Nce7. (Note: I didn't *have* to specify which Knight for either Move because the Knight on d is Pinned).
