Notes on chess in Chicago.
Thanks, Fred! I always wondered what the Halloween gambit was, and was too lazy to look it up. You get a reese's for that.
8...d5! and Black is better, no?But if I were playing blitz on ICC, I'd still bet on Brause.
It's hard to justify the nerves it would take to try to hold onto the piece when 5...Bb4! is a perfectly good response.
5...Bb4 6.exd5 Nxe4 7.Qg4 (in the spirit of the Schliemann) gives White more play than any miscrant soul deserves
