Nov-02-04  who: Beautiful game.
Nov-20-05  chesscrazy: Yeah, black has no stop to 30.Qh8 mate. If he does 29...Ng6, than white still can mate with 30.Qh7.
Nov-20-05  CapablancaFan: R.I.P. Black.
Mar-15-06  DeepBlade: White had an impressive pawncenter in the opening, which gave great comfort in playing. White was the attacking player, and really busted the Black Kingside. The mating attack is really instructive

  ray keene: was this game played in oakham england? it reminds me very much of a game i won v andrew whiteley in 1965 in the sunday times uk schools championship-in both games black wanders offside with his qb grabbing a pawn on a4-meanwhile white masses heavy pieces on the king side---keene v whiteley 1965 kings indian attack is in the database-the clear contrast is that altho the final effects were similar the openings cd not have been further apart-kings gambit and kings indian attack!!

  IMlday: <ray> The tournament was at Oakham House, a Ryerson Student's Union building in downtown Toronto. Like the Windy City tournament we played in '84, it was a Futurity designed for younger Chicago and Toronto players. My opponent had an interesting improvement on 10..f6 in Suttles vs W G Addison, 1965 but I think 12.a4! (after a big tank)was quite effective. 18.Bxh7+ just wins, 19th-century style combo-bombo, although the main line is quite long. Keene vs A J Whiteley, 1965 was a game I would have studied preparing for the 1967 World Junior! Either game would be a good teaching example of the problems of tying up too many pieces on the Queenside and leaving the ♔ to fend for itself.
Oct-13-08  computer chess guy: ♗xh7 is good but
Rybka 3 (depth 16) prefers 18. ♗e4 h6 (♗xf1? ♕h4 ) 19. ♗xh6 and White has an unstoppable attack.

  FSR: Black's pieces marooned on the queenside while White mates on the kingside (including Bf6!) reminds me of Alekhine vs K Sterk, 1921.
