Flummoxing the Alekhine.... again :)

  • #1

    I've played this same game a few times, once even OTB against a FM in a blitz tourney. It's always fun :)

    Wow!  That's brutal.

  • #3

    Very nice!

  • #4

    Ver nice!

  • #5

    8...g6 wins for black.

  • #6

    that is....brilliant!

  • #7

    6.kg6 is the way to defend.

  • #8

    im trying to figure out why black put his king on g8 ive only seen computers make a move that stupid

  • #9

    8...g6 does give Black the advantage, but it's still a nasty trap though and if it beat an NM then it must be worth a shot.

    6...Kg6 7.h4 and you die a slow and painful death. Tongue out

    After 8...g6 black will follow up with Nc6-d8, h6, and win the e-pawn, when white can grab the exchange with Nf7-xh8 but he'll be behind in development and have a rook against two pieces while black has the bishop pair. 5.Bxf7+?? simply leads to a terrible position for white (-2.2) unless black falls for the extremely obvious mate in two.

    A variation :)
