  An Englishman: Good Evening: It seemed unfair that exactly one game of the legendary chess legend Wordsworth "The Legend" Donisthorpe should remain unannotated. Fortunately, it is an entertaining game to replay.

Apr-09-13  thomastonk: Hello <Phony Benoni>, thank you for adding the link. I am almost always in doubt, whether I shall add the link or not. Links can become invalid and, what is really sad, they can be forbidden depending on the country, e.g. Google books. Very often I decided to give only the source, but in the future I will always add the links to chessarch.com and kranten.kb.nl, hoping that these sites will be valid for a while.

  Jonathan Sarfati: The annotations by Steinitz are found in this article by chess historian Edward Winter, “Professor Isaac Rice and the Rice Gambit”, http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/..., 2006.
