  hesyrett: Obviously Black must have had better defenses available, especially after White spent three tempi moving his f♙ from f2 thru f3 and e4 to d5, whilst Black was developing and getting castled.  How about 10...♘f5 Δ 11...h6 ejecting White's ♘?  White can't castle, and his advanced center ♙s will fall soon, exposing his ♔ to a ferocious attack.  Von Kolisch was lucky his opponent was Walker and not Morphy!
Jan-01-10  rustyrook: How about 10--Bf2ch? One possible line is 11 Ke2 Bh4 12 Nf3 Nf5 13g4 Nd6 14 g5 Qe8 15 Qd4 Nf5 16 Qg4 cxd 17 Nxh4 Bxe6 and although a piece down black as a dangerous attack.
Dec-29-13  thomastonk: Have you ever heard about the player <Rohder och Walker>? Maybe a Scottish clansman who went to nearby Leeds and tried to get famous by beating Kolisch?? Oh, what a wonderful plot! But he lost. And how he lost! So, we have to tell the truth.

This game is on the black side a consultation game of John Rhodes, then president of the Leeds Chess Club, and the renowned George Walker. It has been played on the sixth annual meeting of the West Yorkshire Chess Association on Saturday, June 1, 1861. Source: "Leeds Mercury" of June 4, 1861. I will submit a correction slip.
