Jul-04-09  WhiteRook48: why did the Opening Explorer put 4 Bxf7+ here
Jan-09-10  AnalyzeThis: After 6.... Qh4, black is basically winning outright.
Apr-01-10  whiteshark: Black was probably more stoned than white.
Jan-11-11  laskereshevsky: Oh Sugar!.....Oh Honey Honey!...

Me too feeling stoned

Jan-11-11  Akavall: This gambit is extremely unsound it seems.

  profK: Black seemed to really want to loose this one !
Jun-11-12  TheBish: <Whitehat1963: Good Thursday puzzle after 15...hxg6.>

Also, good Monday or Tuesday puzzle in the final position: 21. Qg8+ Ke5 22. Rf7 Qe6 23. Qg7+ and mates (or win the queen for rook earlier).

  Joshka: <WhiteRook48> Isn't that what was played??
Oct-19-17  Cibator: Thought this opening was called the Jerome Gambit. But both names are of US origin, so I guess the Americans are free to call it what they like.

BTW, salt 'n' sugar is a ghastly mix. Steer clear.

  fredthebear: Zoltan Sugar is not to be confused with Susan Polgar.

Salt 'n' chocolate is a great combination!

Nov-04-18  DanielBryant: One of only two successful implementations of today's Opening of the Day.
Dec-21-19  gambitfan: Completely unknown players.

Wrong ECO, C50 instead of C51 Evans Gambit

This game should be removed from the data base.

Jun-02-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: Salt & Sugar sour. Is that like a Margherita?
Sep-08-22  newzild: <TheBish: <Whitehat1963: Good Thursday puzzle after 15...hxg6.> Also, good Monday or Tuesday puzzle in the final position: 21. Qg8+ Ke5 22. Rf7 Qe6 23. Qg7+ and mates (or win the queen for rook earlier).>

But 22...Qe6 isn't forced.

21. Qg8+ Ke5 22. Rf7 Qg5.

Now what?

Sep-08-22  newzild: Answer:
21. Qg8+ Ke5 22. Rf7 Qg5 23. Qh8+! Ke6 24. Qe8+
