Dec-13-10  YoungEd: Nice queen trap! Maybe instead of 15. ...♕h4, Black should have tried g6 with the idea of hunkering down with ♕g7 and ♘f6. Nice game by White!

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <YoungEd> The queen isn't quite trapped, but after 22...Qd4 23 Qh5+ g6 24 Qxg6# the king sure is.
Apr-28-15  disasterion: Leonard Barden in the Guardian:

<A newly published edition of the classic book Savielly Tartakower’s 'My Best Games of Chess 1905-54' ... brought back a memory of Southsea 1951 where the icon was playing the Dane Palle Ravn. Tartakower had a fine attack, and he was scribbling variations furiously on his score sheet. It emerged that he wanted to include the game in his book, but believed the publisher’s deadline was imminent. Nobody at Southsea dreamed of protesting.>
