  Chessical: Macdonnell's sacrificial idea commencing with 14....0-0 [14...d6 would have been sounder] fails to 15.e5!
Apr-14-09  WhiteRook48: I see McDonnell being crashed all the time by this guy
Feb-01-12  Knight13: McDonnell's tactical suicide - flashy. But that's it.
Feb-04-12  Knight13: 5...Be7 6. d4 d6 provides Black with better play.
