|Feb-14-07|| ||Ashram64: what a careless play by black... valentine, in your face!|
|Feb-14-07|| ||RandomVisitor: Perhaps Black should have tried:
(-1.05): 13...Qb6 14.Nd6+ Bxd6 15.Qxg7 Be7 16.e6 Qxe6 17.Qxh8 Qg6 18.Qc3
(-0.92): 11...Kf8 12.Bb3 c4 13.Nc3 Bb7 14.Rd1 h5 15.Qh3 cxb3 16.axb3 Bc6 17.Nd5 Qb8 18.Bf4
|Feb-14-07|| ||pseudosdionysius: nice!|
|Feb-14-07|| ||Manuel G. Vergara: Nice game! nice title! very appropriate!|
|Feb-14-07|| ||Delusional Patzer: Sure, I'll go for a massacre. Who's in?|
|Feb-14-07|| ||Tactic101: Now thats what I call bravery! Brilliant game by white. This one deserves to be in the books.|
|Feb-14-07|| ||laskereshevsky: The St. Valentine's Day massacre is the name given to the shooting of seven people as part of a Prohibition Era conflict between two powerful criminal gangs in Chicago, Illinois in the winter of 1929: the South Side Italian gang led by Al "Scarface" Capone and the North Side Irish/German gang led by George 'Bugs' Moran.|

|Feb-14-07|| ||fm avari viraf: On Valentine's Day we want two hearts to love & not to slaughter King's head. But the art of attack is simply brilliant!|
|Feb-14-07|| ||ClassZPlaya: Like <Ashram64> I am surprised Louis Paulsen handled the opening so carelessly.|
|Feb-14-07|| ||playground player: It kind of looks careless for Paulsen to get his Bishop trapped so early. But wow! His counterattack really takes care of business. Sometimes the best defense really is offense.|
|Feb-14-07|| ||Mendrys: I love quiet little moves like 20. c3! I feel that this is the key move for white after the bishop sac. It very effectively prevents black from defending the Knight. Nice game by De Vere.|
|Feb-14-07|| ||Themofro: Sweet game by white, c3 is especially nice in my opinion.|
|Feb-14-07|| ||kevin86: Black's tenth ad eleventh moves show how pathetic his game was-two sad retreats. I thought the Valentine was going to lose-before I played the game,since Paulsen has had some good games. I was wrong as Valentine won the game.|

Is it bad to play 14.ed? It seems wrong to go hunting Exchanges.
|Feb-15-07|| ||moonrain: Mendrys, Themofro, yeh, guys, so lovely still c3.|
|May-21-13|| ||Cemoblanca: Yep, it was definitely better as the http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072271...|
20.c3!! was an amazing move.
|Feb-14-17|| ||MelvinDoucet: <11... ♔f8> looks obvious to the modern player but I'm guessing chess theory wasn't as well developped in 1870 and perhaps Black wasn't comfortable with losing castling rights. 13... g6? is just asking for trouble, though.
Regarding White's play, the quiet <20. c3!!> was absolutely crushing! It's a pity this website doesn't have a "move of the game" feature..|
