Sep-26-04  Knight13: 13... Kc7?? this move blunders most of the losing positions. 18... Qxh8?! wasn't a really good move followed by 19. c5+! This is one of my best mating game.
Aug-24-05  sneaky pete: Very good, <Knight13>! 13... Kc7 and 18... Qxh8 are the moves questionmarked by De La Bourdonnais himself, when he published this game in La Palamede, 1837. White gave odds of Ra1, he didn't really need that rook.
Feb-28-08  wolfmaster: Jouantho's method of losing is "Jouanthology."
Jun-25-17  Whitehat1963: How many of black's pieces never moved?
Jun-25-17  Whitehat1963: I think besides pawns, black only moved his queen and the f-bishop. Amazingly bad development.
Jun-25-17  The Kings Domain: Masters giving odds in the old days led to some fun and exciting games.
