Oct-22-07  RookFile: Once again, a random, unheard of, player takes the white pieces, plays the Evans Gambit against Steinitz, and slaps him silly.
Feb-21-09  WhiteRook48: what a Grand game. Can anyone explain 29...Qxe5?
Apr-21-09  sneaky pete: 29... Qxe5 is to avoid the forced mate after 29... Qe8 30.Qxc2+ Kh8 31.Ng6+ .. (31... Kh7 32.Nf8++ Kh8 33.Qh7#; 31... Qxg6 32.Qxg6 ... threat 33.Qxh6# and if 32... Be3 33.Bxg7+ Rxg7 34.Qxg7#).
