Oct-05-04  fgh: Lol, cool game.
Mar-07-05  Mate Hunter: 3.fxe5 was a blunder. In KGD white can't take e5 before he plays Nf3.
Dec-03-07  Calculon: <Mate Hunter>Torre did in his other game against Wall. He still only lasted 18 moves.
Mar-20-09  YoungEd: If players of White are really so intent on dropping a rook early on, I would suggest the following as a more efficient way to do so: 1. h4 e5
2. h5 d5
3. Rh4 Qxh4

QED! :)
