  Honza Cervenka: I would prefer 9...h6 instead of 9...g4 and 10...0-0 instead of 10...Nxd5. 11...f3 was too optimistic, but after 11...Na6 Rosenthal's position is also clearly better.

  OhioChessFan: <Honza Cervenka> One of the earliest posts I've seen on this site. Love those 19th century King side slugfests.
Jan-13-10  shishio71: Ah, good ol' Romantic era chess!
May-15-18  Toribio3: Early queen attack was not a good strategy! Even a world champion is not exempted from this rule of thumb. Development of pieces in the opening is more sustainable objective in winning! Qh4+ is a doubtful move.
