  offramp: I would certainly have played on in the final position. Surely there was no time limit in these games?

32...♖g8 looks like a good move; how is white going to get his king out?

Dec-03-04  sneaky pete: <offramp> The final moves of the games are missing, according to the Oxford Encyclopedia. Their source is "The British Miscellany and Chess Player's Chronicle". Probably some of these missing moves were so weak that Staunton didn't care to publish them, preferring some formula like "and white went on to win", suggesting that white would win anyway.

This is illustrative game # 1 in Staunton's <The Chess-Player's Handbook> (first published 1847), played "some years since", taken from the <Chess Player's Chronicle>. S. remarks on move 36 "It (meaning the king's bishop) would have been move decisive if played to K.B's 7th at once" and simply concludes "39.K. to Kt.'s 2nd, and wins."

  offramp: <SneakyPete> Thank you for taking the time to help me out on these Staunton games I have been looking at. It's very good of you as I was a bit bamboozled!
May-03-09  sneaky pete: I don't know what it's doing here, but the second part of my December 3, 2004, kibitz refers to Staunton vs Popert, 1840. The first part applies for both games.
