  offramp: Amazing mating attack in an ending.
Aug-20-07  sanyas: Surely Black can draw this.
Aug-20-07  sanyas: What I mean is, b4 was White's only thrust in the position, and I am sure that with two pawns guarding that square the pieces could have been arranged to prevent it, while simultaneously guarding f6 and blockading the d-pawn. White's forces are locked into his own half and cannot easily create threats, so Black's multiple commitments could all be tended to.

  FSR: William Ewart Napier in "Paul Morphy and the Golden Age of Chess," p. 234, rather extravagantly wrote of this game, "Winawer's amazing game against Englisch is perhaps the most important single game ever played."
Aug-18-19  Granny O Doul: It changed my life. Starting right now. Watch how different things are from now on.
