  Knight13: Now that's what I call 19th Centurary Style of Play! Good developement by White.
Feb-03-06  Steppenwolf: McDonnel played this like a 1800 player, at best. LB won a piece by a very simple and basic combination. End of game. Weak, really weak.
May-07-07  Dick Brain: The game ended on the blunder of course but he was under some scary pressure on h6. I've seen players a lot better than 1800 screw up worse.

  Knight13: I guess 17... Nf6 was the way to go. But White still had a better position, though.
