Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-19-06  prinsallan: White starts with a pawn on e4 and also gets the first move? - If so the player with white messes things up bad. Staunton crushes the poor guy in just a few moves. Staunton breaks several rules, mostly by moving the Queen allover the place, but the White player does not know how defense in Chess works :D
Sep-25-07  Morphyisgod: He didnt play poorly, and staunton still beat him with the odds
Aug-01-08  HurtU: Couldn't White have continued to defend with 12.Re1? After 13...Qh2+ 14. Kf1, Qh1+ 15. Ng1 defending! Now what does have Black have?

  tpstar: 12. Re1 Qh2+ 13. Kf1 Nxe3#.

6. Nf3 would have defended the Kingside better.

Oct-30-17  Zhbugnoimt: 9.h3 followed by 10.f4 was much better than the time-wasting a3 and b4
