  MoonlitKnight: I immediately recognized the mating pattern from Fischer-Fine. It helps to study the classics!

  OhioChessFan: <Balmo> yes, 14. Qd2 is very strong, and your lines are all crushing. 14...Qh4 may prolong the agony a little.

  OhioChessFan: <morf: After 14. Qe2:

3) <14...Qg5 15.Bxf7 c6 16.Bxg8 Qxg7 17.Qe8+ Kc7> *Only winning the exchange; White needs to improve since he's down so many pawns>

16. Be5 is better I think

Jun-12-13  Abdel Irada: <OhioChessFan: <morf: After 14. Qe2:

3) <14...Qg5 15.Bxf7 c6 16.Bxg8 Qxg7 17.Qe8+ Kc7> *Only winning the exchange; White needs to improve since he's down so many pawns>

16. Be5 is better I think>

It appears that <morfishine> thought so as well: <(3a) <16.Be5> *Threatening 17.Bd6. Looks very strong. White's huge lead in development and activity more than compensates for the pawns>

  kevin86: Easy,the queen bulls (or cows) her way into the fray at g4...and mate follows quickly.
Jun-12-13  BOSTER: It was nice time, when rating system didn't exist, when chess was an art, not a sport, when "perfection has no monopoly over beauty".

Maybe the fact that this game in <kibitzing> almost 10 years shows that <CG.com> has a good taste and believes that our players have always the inclination to beauty.

The real puzzle is not today <POTD>, but the question <Did the Time refute <Danish Gambit>?

  doubledrooks: I went with 14. Qg4. For example:

a. 14...Qd6 15. Bf6+ Qxf6 16. Qxg8#

b. 14...Qh6 15. Bf6+ Qxf6 16. Qxg8#

c. 14...Qxg4 15. Bf6#

If you want to talk about Wall Street, you should probably do it in <Kenneth Rogoff>.

  Patriot: It seems that 14.Qg4 wins. 14...Qxg4?? 15.Bf6#; 14...Qd6 15.Bf6+ Qxf6 16.Qxg8#.

I don't see any other critical responses worth considering.

  perfidious: <playground player: Does anybody play the Danish Gambit anymore?>

The biggest problem with such openings is that Black defenders have learnt from games such as this and no longer grab everything on offer.

Jun-12-13  Kinghunt: I'm surprised nobody's mentioned this yet, but the solution is almost identical to the finish in this famous game: Fischer vs Fine, 1963
Jun-12-13  Mendrys: Black is so underdeveloped that it may be harder to find "White to play and lose."

  perfidious: <Kinghunt>: There have been several direct references to that game in these pages, the most recent of which was by <MoonlitKnight>.
Jun-12-13  BOSTER: I'd like to represent couple pos. from <Danish> to show how the author of the brilliant combo, who knows the players psychology very well, creates so irresistable temptation, such strong a lure that no any man can escape.

Black to play. Here black played cxb2, and white answered with <crazy> Rd1. After bxa1=Q <White has a dream position>. <Domdaniel> and the move.

  perfidious: <BOSTER>: White gives up some more material with 1.Qxf7+ and Ne6 mate.
Jun-12-13  tivrfoa: Hi <morfishine> <I became hypnotized with <14.Qe2> hitting e7 & e8> one tip: I also first analysed 14.Qe2, but it was giving too much work for Wednesday!! =) Then I realized that if I placed the bishop on f6 it would be checkmate, but black queen was there, then BINGO. So it's just force the black queen to leave the f6 unprotected.
Jun-12-13  montree: My very first glance at the position noted the hapless position of Black king. The mate with Bf6 suggests itself. Black Queen is guarding the square. So 'remove the defender' - Qg4! then I noted that Qg4 opens up a veiled attack against the Black rook in case black refuses the 'bait'. Medium, Nah- Super easy.

  Patriot: <BOSTER> 1.Qxf7+ Nxf7 2.Bxf7+ Kd8 3.Ne6# (as <perfidious> noted). Wow--thanks for pointing this position out! That's a beautiful combination!

Me too! I find it hard to imagine Fischer hadn't seen this game. He was known to have an extensive chess library with content going way back to the old games.
