Jun-17-03  chessamateur: Nice game but what if 17... Kd8?
Jun-17-03  crafty: 17. ... ♔d8 18. ♘e5 ♕xd6 19. ♘xf7+ ♔c7 20. ♘xd6 ♘xd6 21. ♗d3   (eval 5.03; depth 12 ply; 100M nodes)

Dec-25-03  blunder maker: This game seem like Anderson's famous game "Adolf Anderssen vs Dufresne".It was also a Evans Gambit game.
Sep-27-04  Elrathia Kingi: This would make a good puzzle at 18.?

  tpstar: <Elrathia Kingi> How would White proceed against 17 ... Kd8 instead?
Sep-28-04  Elrathia Kingi: <tpstar> 18.Ne5 seems the most sensible choice. It attacks the queen, forcing either 18...Q(moves) 19.Nxc6+ dxc6 20.Qa5+ with inevitable mate, or 18...Nxe5 19.Qa5+ Ke8 20.Rxe5+, allowing Qd8 mate.
Dec-25-06  Rubenus: It would also be a good game of the day.
