  offramp: This does not look like a very good game to me. It seems like a typical KGA where White gambits a pawn so that he come under a strong attack.

21. Bf4 looks like the only way to stop the dreaded threat of 21...Qe3+, but the white king looks a bit defenceless.

Jul-27-17  Ilkka Salonen: 11. Bd3 looks like a terrible move. White is just giving up a pawn and a possibility for pretty steady early advanced pawn structure.
Jul-27-17  Ilkka Salonen: I suspect 11. Bc4 might be better than c4. White of course has some awkwardness in his king placement, a price to pay for his king's gambit, I suppose.
Jul-27-17  The Kings Domain: Good game, black was an aggressive and clever player who got white in uncomfortable situations throughout the bout.

  piltdown man: Good pun, except it was the opponent who was horrible.
Jul-27-17  Ironmanth: Tending to agree with many of the comments today. In fact, this game reminds me of some of my own botch-jobs on the White side of the KG! Sigh; so much still to learn! Have a great day, all!

  kevin86: I still like the king's gambit!
Jul-27-17  catlover: Since we're mentioning bad moves on white's part, I think 16. Rf1 would have been an improvement over 16. Re1.

As <Kings Domain> said, Haygarth did play play well as black. He took advantage of less-than-best moves and kept the pressure on Milner-Barry.

Jul-27-17  PJs Studio: I actually enjoy the way black takes advantage of this (more than) suspect opening.
Jul-27-17  bubuli55: The finish.

22.Qf4+ Kd3
23.Qd4+ Ke2
24.Qb2+ ~

B & 2pawns up.

Jul-27-17  RandomVisitor: 17...Bxd4 was probably better because after 17...Nxd4 white can reply Kf1 with a playable game.
