"G. Ware" is "Preston Ware" (Preston Ware has his own page here) sometimes referred to as "G. P. Ware" or "G. Preston Ware, Jr."

I don't know what the "G" stands for. But the pages can be consolidated.

  Honza Cervenka: From move 20 black completely lost the thread of this game. After simple 20...Nxf5 white would have nothing and black with extra piece should win.
