Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-29-10  WickedPawn: No pieces have been exchanged and yet the two white knights overpower the entire black's 1st and 2nd ranks. Unbelievable.
Jun-29-10  randomsac: Great knightwork for a fantastic finish.
Jun-29-10  MaczynskiPratten: Another of the many attractive games popularised by <Irving Chernev>; I remember it from "The Chess Companion". He comments on the ring-a-ring-a-roses pattern of the Knights after 10 Ne6! and his final comment at move 13 is "King and Queen have fled, and the White Knights occupy their thrones". Of course 14 Bc4+ is going to be terminal. Black's big blunder seems to be 9...f6; what was he thinking?
Nov-19-12  Infohunter: This same game appears here at <cg> as W A Foldeak vs F Nagy, 1942

  fm avari viraf: White's Knights are on the rampage destroying the Black's defence & nailing the Black King in the coffin.

  takchess: A puzzle at 10.
Sep-30-19  Pyrandus: Kugler, bravissimo!
Feb-10-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: Amazing game, especially in the final position. I don't know whether to pun on "Kluger" -- which is the German word for "clever" when the "-er" ending is grammatically appropriate -- or just reference the knights/horses/cavalry without a true pun.

Oh heck, I'll go for both, plus some alliteration:

Clever Cavalry Charge

  Breunor: I have to admit I don?t really believe this game is authentic. It is TOO beautiful.
Jul-19-21  Brenin: 9 ... f6?? Kluger exploitation of a Nagy blunder!
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: For more knight cavorting, see the immortal finish of B H Wood vs P Devos, 1948.
Premium Chessgames Member
  An Englishman: Good Evening: Agreeing with <Breunor>. But certainly do wish it actually occurred.
Jul-19-21  Cheapo by the Dozen: I should have paid more attention to <Infohunter>'s comment above. Oops!

*Clever* exploitation of a *large* blunder.

Jul-19-21  Ironmanth: Holy crap! Can't believe that I haven't, to my memory, seen this before. Stunning and so beautiful. Beware always of ...f6 (f3)!
Jul-19-21  Brenin: <Ironmanth>: In today's POTD (<Robatsch vs Bisguier, 1961> it is White who makes the corresponding blunder f3. Punishment is again spectacular.
Jul-19-21  catlover: Nice game title that totally fits the way this game ends. Well done, <Cheapo>.

  Fusilli: This game is as terrible as amusing. I like it as a choice for game of the day.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <Fusilli> Yes. Ghastly play by Black, which White refutes very prettily.
