Sep-08-04  xiaolin: theres a forced mate in 45 moves :)
Jul-03-07  Morphyisgod: for white?!
May-04-09  Elrathia Kingi: 28...Bxc4 is also winning.
Jul-29-09  Knight13: And Kennedy misses 28...Bg4? At least 28. Rg3 would've been more logical.

9. f5?? is premature. This hands over the center to black.

Aug-02-09  YoungEd: Isn't 14. ♗xe4 pretty bad?
Aug-03-09  Knight13: <YoungEd: Isn't 14. Bxe4 pretty bad?> White's position is already pretty bad. 14. Be2 Bh6 15. Rf1 g5 is not much better. Here, White's pieces are restricted while Black has complete control of the center and is ready to mow over White. 14. Bxe4 offers some counterplay and relief, although it is far from enough.
Dec-22-17  rdhtyagi: <YoungEd: Isn't 14. ♗xe4 pretty bad?> Yes, It is quite a bad move. White messed it up thinking that he can take 2 pawns and bishop after playing 15.Rxe4. But black was quick to pounce upon this mistake. 15.Rxe4 would be replied by Qxe4 taking advantage of Rd1 mate if white takes his Queen. White loses his bishop and the game here.
Dec-22-17  sudoplatov: Continuing to peruse Edo for old ratings.

Kenndey 2397 (#38)

Wyvill 2478 (#18)

Morphy 2741 (#1) clearly still learning
