Sep-29-21  Stolzenberg: Chesgambit: There is nothing wrong with 2. ... e5 as it gives Black a solid position in the centre. But instead of 4. ... f5 Lasker recommended 4. ... exf4 5. Bxf4 Ne7.
Oct-01-21  Stolzenberg: Is 18. ... Rxb2 better? Perhaps a task for an engine.
Oct-03-21  Stolzenberg: 18. ... h6 19. Ne4 Bxe4 20. Q or R xe4 Rxb2 seems to be another good possibility. I mistrust this 18. ... Bxc2, it was probably not the best. +++++
20. ... Qf2+ looks impressive, but did not really help. +++++
22. ... Rf6 lost immediately, 22. ... Rg8 was necessary.
