Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-29-04  capanegra: One of the strangest games I have ever seen, with a unique end. Black wins attacking both sides of the board, and without moving his central pawns!!!
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: This is indeed a strange game and it's going into my collection as the "obnoxious black pawns"!
Jan-29-04  Shadout Mapes: How in the hell did white allow black a vicious attack in a gambit?

The horrors of leaving your king in the center.

Jan-29-04  capanegra: More curious aspects about this rare piece:

At move 11, while white has developed most of his pieces and is taking the center, black doesn’t exceed the second line with the exception of one pawn, but his position seems to be safe.

The race of the bloodthirsty “a” and “b” pawns from move 13 to 17.

On moves 19 and 20 starts his original attack breaking white’s line simultaneously on both flanks not with the minor pieces, but with his rooks!

The imprisonment of the white queen on move 27 is also cute.

Nov-27-04  george IV: What if 23.gxf3 ♗xc3+ 24.♗d2 ♕xf3 25.♕xa3? I believe that after 25…♕f2+ 26.♔d1 ♘e3+ 27.♔c1 the King escapes.

  tpstar: <george IV> Interesting variation! After 25. Qxa3 Black would probably throw in 25 ... Qe4+, since White can't interpose (26. Ne3? Qxe3+ mates), thus 26. Kd1 Qxh1 regaining the Rook with tempo on the Nf1 - now 27. Ke2?/Ke1? Qe4+ 28. Kd1 Qf3+ 29. Ke1 Qf2+ wins the Nf1 outright, and 27. Bc4?? Nxc4, leaving 27. Bxc3 Qxf1+ 28. Be1 Nf2+ 29. Kd2 Nde4+ winning the Be1, leaving Black with 2 Knights for a Rook.
Nov-28-04  george IV: Thank you <tpstar>, your continuation looks very convincing. Let me add only that after 27.♗xc3 ♕xf1+ 28.♗e1 it is better 28…♘e3+ (instead of ♘f2+) 29.♔d2 ♘dc4+ 30.♗xc4 ♘xc4+ winning the Queen. And if 29.♔c1 ♕xe1+ 30.♔b2 ♘dc4+ 31.♗xc4 ♘xc4+ 32.♔a2 ♕xb1+ 33.♔xb1 ♘xa3+ with two pieces ahead.

  tpstar: <george IV> Oh yes, what an awesome family fork on c4! This all looks good for Black, and then at the end of your last line note 32. Kb3 Nd2+ with the same difference. Brilliant attack by Black.
Feb-17-06  Runemaster: The other game in the database between these two players is also strange. Guimard won that one in a bad bishop vs knight ending (although he had the bad bishop). Once again, Piazzini love of strange knight manouvres is seen.

Dec-28-07  computerchezplayer: i think when the game ends, it s time to move black s central pawns,
