    I was bored and looking at a number of random games and I played through one game.

    Game 7154318



    Looks like a sharp attack doesn't it?

    black wasn't even allowed to breathe... saw now a couple of times a game with those double pawn sacrifices - and when played well then turned into a massive lead in development. guess it is worth studying...

    Guess that is why the "compromised defence" is compromised...

    I haven't got the latest and greatest database but who can tell me where the theory ends on the first game posted in this thread? Also for those with the latest boxes, run the game on your box and see which moves the box disagrees with.

    Why run it through a box? What are we looking for?

    All I can see it a position where White has burnt his bridge and has no
    option but to attack and a difficult position for Black to defend.
    Indeed it proved beyond Black in the three given examples.
    (your'e post and two I am giving.)

    Putting together the White attack after move 13 seemed well with the
    capabilities of any reasonable player.

    I'm surprised given your 1800+ grade and no losses you find this attack
    extra ordinary. It's rather obvious the White will if he can chase the Black Queen
    to better his pieces and look for a wee slip to exploit.
    Black is on thin ice he has to play very carefully.
    I like White. I'd take White OTB anyday.

    Why did I say after move 13?
    You asked where the theory ends. I have two previous games that reached
    the same position before your posted game was played.

    Game 951291 played on here in 2005 finished in 2007 has the same
    position after 13 moves.


    (played 3 years before the game you posted. White is 1400.)

    Oh and do look at this one. It to is 'quite an attack' and again reaches
    the same postition after 13 moves and incorporates the Rook e1-e4
    and g2-g4 idea seen in the first game.

    It was played 149 years ago.
    (now tell again, why do we have run this game through an engine?)

    Anderssen - Mayet Berlin, 1862

    We are looking for a wee bastirt, who said we are looking for "anything"?

    Bored again so looked at another interesting game Game 8589452



    The guy (white) states that he is 1900ish OTB but nearly 2400 here. All very interesting.
