Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-18-05  Knight13: I'm sure people fall into this kind of trap. Good game.
Jan-25-05  Saruman: This one can also be found in TAZ (Traps and Zaps by Bruce Pandolfini).
Jul-26-07  DataFly: Does anyone have any more information about Afro Ambanelli? He plays as cyrano on gameknot and ironman31 on redhotpawn (where he was kicked off for cheating) and has achieved a 2500 rating on both these sites. Is he really that good?
Nov-11-07  pawnofdoom: He isn't on FIDE, which is weird. And on GameKnot, the highest player he's ever beaten was only 2300, and his avg. opponent is only 1800. It seems as though he just plays weaker players for free rating points. He is the highest player on GameKnot at the moment
Dec-10-07  forbismarck: Afro Ambanelli is a National Master from Italy. He achieved the title of NM in 1991; and has played in correspondence tournaments for many years.
Mar-08-12  BlackSheep: Whoever Ambanelli is hes got a super rating considering this is his only game in the database .
Mar-14-13  estrick: According to Fritz, if Black plays 9 . . . Be6, he is equal.

9. Ng5 is not White's best move. Fritz recommends 9. c4!

after which follows:
9 . . . Be6
10. Nc3 Nf6
11. Ne5 dxc4

On move 12 Fritz gives Qe3 and Qh4 an equal evaluation of +0.29
