May-29-04  poktirity: Nice mate

  FSR: I guess back in those days it was obligatory to take a queen even if it led to instant mate. The "unmanly" 9.dxe4 Qex4 10.Rf1 dxe2 11.Qxe2, leaving White a pawn down, was rather better.
Apr-02-08  waustad: This game is duplicated here.
Jan-30-11  laskereshevsky: Mister Stevenson goes in town.....
And "sleeped" in a Marriott's suite
Sep-05-11  Llawdogg: Wow! Great queen sacrifice.
Jun-13-16  Dhikey: Instead of 7.f3? White should have made 7.0-0..

  sea7kenp: <Dhikey>: I agree with 7 O-O.
Feb-10-19  Cibator: Going solely by the names of the players, my first idea was that the year was a century out (should have been 1968), and that the players were M A Stevenson and Sergio Mariotti, both of whom were active at that time.

And then I played through the game .... !!
