Nov-20-04  kostich in time: In his round by round commentary on Carlsbad 1929-according to Divinsky,the wittiest chess reportage ever written-Kmoch compared Menchick to Mary Queen of Scots..beautiful, but unfortunate...she finished dead last.

  offramp: Janowsky used to compare his own play to Mary as well.
Feb-14-06  CristianR: On 10.Bf8 black was fearing h5 and then Qxg7. It seems that black queen is far from defend the king.
Jun-03-09  totololo: Excellent black squares attack! This illustrates the idea of this opening
Sep-04-09  WhiteRook48: 31...Kd8 32 Rxe6+
Mar-12-14  Vitaly Storchak: 4.Фg4 сомнительный ход.

  Honza Cervenka: There is nothing wrong with 7...Nge7 but 9...Be7 was a mistake. 9...Qc7 10.Qg3 Nb4 was better.

  GrahamClayton: Unusual black pawn formation at the end of the game - forming a "box" on f7, h7, h5 & f5;
