Jun-16-05  cuendillar: 14.Nd5! Bf6 (14...Qb8? 15.c7 Qb8 16.Nxe7+ Kf7 17.cxd8#) 15.Nxc7 Bxd4 16.Bxd4 winning a piece seem stronger than the the game continuation.
Jul-16-05  lentil: hey give the guy a break! he was only 8 or 9!
Jul-16-05  halcyonteam: The opponent H Wright seems pretty weak at the game with Nshort
Jul-16-05  FinKing: Wright is not bright.
Mar-11-07  HannibalSchlecter: <lentil> "hey give the guy a break! he was only 8 or 9!" That sir, is no excuse! The kid played like he didn't have a care in the world about the dangers lurking in his environment. If we keep coddling these kids and teaching them that bad moves are normal for their age they will never rise above their abject mediocre mental capacity. Now having said that the real question becomes, is anyone taking me seriously?
Nov-30-07  Hot Logic: Losing 2 pawns in 8 moves in the King's Gambit as Black should be a dead giveaway that this was not a high level game.
Dec-18-07  nimzo knight: Well if it wasn't 1974, I would think this game was from yahoo chess. Black's play is horrifying to say the least.
Jan-02-09  WhiteRook48: wright is wrong!
Feb-22-09  WhiteRook48: Wright did not play the Wright move, he played the Wrong move, and thus he got cut Short. Stupid me.
