Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-16-05  lopium: Very bad developpement for white.
5.Bg2 was certainly better than the terrible blunder d4?.
Sep-27-05  Averageguy: In all fairness 6.d4 looks good at a quick glance. It's probably the first move I'd consider in this position.

  kevin86: Of course he could have played 7f4 and be mated on the other side by ♘d3#
Feb-17-06  Eopithecus: just a game between a couple of class players.
Mar-28-06  Necessary Truths: If the pawn were still on d2 this would clearly be called a Smothered Mate; is it still called a Smothered Mate with the pawn on d4?
Jan-28-08  areknames: This one was quite funny..;) 6.Nf4 and white is doing ok. I probably would discard 6.d4 because it loses a pawn, hehe.
Feb-20-08  D.Observer: <Don't try to do this on a master!>

  perfidious: Escaping the Scylla of one smothered mate, he falls straight into the Charybdis of another.
Dec-28-20  areknames: <6.Nf4 and white is doing ok> This is still true, however both 6.Ng1 and 6.Nd4 could be slightly better.
