Feb-03-06  blingice: That pawn can't hide a ♔ long. Quite an endgame.
Mar-13-08  Knight13: <To accept the King’s Gambit is at all events better than to decline; we have seen the contrary in the game Blackburne v. Schlechter in the last Leipsic Tournament. The defence has more resources than the attack.> Are you serious!? Someone actually comments about King's Gambit in 1895 after that opening being played for like the whole 19th century straightforward!

<Mr. Pillsbury plays here to simplify the game because his famous opponent is dangerous.> Huh?? This coming from a 17th-place guy talking to the 1st-place winner?
