  offramp: As black, the worst type of game to play. At the end you think, What did I turn up for? Why was I sitting here?

  Honza Cervenka: 11...a5 and 12...b5 was very bad idea. Black should have finished his development at first. On the other hand, Staunton's play was not flawless, for example 25.Rxe4 fxe4 26.Bd6+ Ne7 27.Qf6+ Kg8 28.Bxe7 is much better than the text.
Jul-21-15  saturn2: Black's 22..Nxe4 opening the line for white's rock seems suicidal to me.
