Jun-29-05  sfm: How does white win if black instead of giving up tries 11.-,♔d8 ?
Jun-29-05  sfm: Ah, I see: 12.♕f8,♔c7 13.♗d6+ and black has an unpleasant choice, the fastest death being 13.-,♔b6 14.♕d8+ and the slowest being 13.-,♔b7 14.♗a6+ and 15.♖xa1
Jun-29-05  Kangaroo: A little correction to <<sfm>: 12.Qf8,Kc7 13.Bd6+ and black has an unpleasant choice, the fastest death being 13.-,Kb6 14.Qd8+ and the slowest being 13.-,Kb7 14.Ba6+ and 15.Rxa1>

After <11... Kd8 12. Qf8+ Kc7 13. Bd6+ Kb7> consider this move, please: <14. Qd8> - seems to me that the threat of <15. Qc7#> or - after <14... Rb8 - 15. Qc7+> followed by <16. Qxb8#> forces Black to resign or give up the queen on <f1>, leaving the king quite unsecure anyway!

Jun-29-05  peabody88: <Kangaroo> after 14.Qd8 there is 14... Qd4+ and 15... Qxd6 stops the treat of Qc7# and although the blackĀ“s king is still exposed, it is up by rook and knight.
Jun-30-05  Kangaroo: To <peabody88>

Sorry, I did not pay attention that White had no time for a silent move because of the check. Therefore we agree on the variation proposed by <sfm>.

Mar-20-06  McCool: Another bring your queen out too early blunder.
Mar-20-06  azaris: <Thou shalt not bring out your queen unless pieces are developed and you have an attack!>

Playing according to such "principles" is roughly equivalent to giving queen odds for the first 10-15 moves in every game. The reason Black lost is he disregarded the weak diagonal, not because of any perceived "early queen move".

The apparent silliness of such claims went unnoticed by all the people who apparently also think that White's 9.Qd6! was an early queen move and as such also a blunder.

Aug-07-11  madhatter5: very nice use of the weak diagonal created when black traded his DSB.

  GrahamClayton: A graphic exploitation of a dark-squared weakness by Bernstein of the a3-f8 diagonal.
