Aug-06-04  fred lennox: Staunton was a master at combinations yet his true strength was creating imbalances as this great game shows. Not only in the exchange of a rook for two minor pieces and the like, also in compensating pawn weaknesses like the double isolated c pawns after move 7.

  perfidious: Staunton's work on Shakespeare remains respected by experts of that field.
Sep-19-14  ljfyffe: S.J. Schepps:"Editor Howard Staunton was one of the great Shakespearean scholars of his age. His knowledge of the texts themselves and of Elizabethan language and customs was enormous."
