Jul-05-02  mprchess: Staunton is the most boring player ive ever seen (lasker also thought that) good player though.

  Sneaky: I second that. I've never been a big fan of Staunton.
Feb-09-03  popski: Well, maybe his games are boring but his Staunton chess set is nice anyway ...
Jul-27-09  Knight13: A good mating pattern that frequently appears in tactic books.

25...Qd7 26. Qh8#.

  Honza Cervenka: 8...Nd8? is too passive and simply bad move. 8...Ne5 would be fine for black. But white by several suboptimal choices allowed black to consolidate his position, and he missed a witty tactical chance to unpin and liberate his position with 20...Nc4! 21.Bxe7 Nxe3 22.Rxe3 Rxe7 etc.
