Dec-23-04  Backward Development: Nice tactic
Oct-17-05  AlexanderMorphy: yes great tactic and Black has no chance in this one! if fxe6, then Qh5 and mate!

  whiteshark: A good tournament start for white, while it was the worst for black.
Jun-05-09  mertangili: And not taking the rook doesnt help either:

14...Be7 15.Nd6+ Kf8 16. Bh6+ Kg8 17. Qg4+ and either mate or huge material loss is unavoidable.

Very nice and powerful early-game tactic indeed.

Jun-05-09  mastermind7994: Actually in your line there is not even material loss only forced mate:

17.Bg5 18.Re8+ Qxe8 and 19.Qxg4#

  GrahamClayton: Playing 13...0-0 would have left Black a pawn down rather than being checkmated.
Oct-27-10  sevenseaman: I saw it coming. Like buntings and confetti presage a celebration, Black moves ...9. e6 to ... 13. Bf8 are nothing but. Fussing and fine tuning the decorations, before the guests arrive!
Jun-05-12  lemaire90: Hahaha, very well said ! ^
Dec-12-12  vinidivici: 14.Rxe6+....
POTD i think for tuesday or monday.
