I think that white was winning at the end.

rooperi

How would you rate Black's play?

ivandh

I would rate it as being not as good as white's.

rooperi

Worthy a a reigning world champion?

Scottrf

Delayed Muzio gambit?

beardogjones

This game was all about the opening and black got crushed.

rooperi

I think in the Vienna it's called a Hammpe Algaier gambit.

Hammpe might have 1 m and 2 p's, though. And Algaier might have a double l.......

Scottrf

I prefer the Petrov gambit:



rooperi

Anyway, anybody feel like guessing who was playing black?

Scottrf

Steinitz.

rooperi

nope, not steinitz

Scottrf

Lasker.

rooperi

Nope. I'll give you a hint... do you think he was sober?

Scottrf

Alekhine.

rooperi

Yup, Perez-Alekhine Madrd 1940

GM__Sanand
