Aug-26-05  Peter Yang: why not 5... Bxf2+?
Sep-26-05  elh: Because when you're Jacques Mieses, and your opponent is so bad he misses the first attack beginners learn, you play to win as fast as possible.
Nov-07-05  themindset: not a good answer. not a good game. 8.Kd3 and white would still very much be in the game, whereas the immediate Nxf2 would have won for black.
Nov-07-06  Manic: Don't think 8.Kd3 would have helped white much. 8...Nxe5+ continues the attack.

  John Saunders: The version of this game given in the Hastings & St Leonards Observer, 12 August 1944, page 7, gives the move order 4...Nc6 5 e4 Bc5, which could make a difference. The game was played in a club match between Lud Eagle CC (based in London) and Allied Forces.
Oct-23-17  Poseur2lapin: In the statement of the moves played and those of the chess diagram, the whites give up after 4...Nc6, but the comments speak of the 5th and 8th moves. In a book found online, it's 4...Bc5 is played, followed by 5.e4-Nc6, and the game has nine moves. What are the moves in the right order that have actually been played?
