Nov-02-11  Llawdogg: Holy Cow! This is one of the greatest finishes I've ever seen! 15 Qxg7+!! is a fantastic queen sacrifice. Just beautiful. And then 16 Rg5# is a brilliant double check checkmate. This is amazing! Woo Hoo!
Jan-25-12  Llawdogg: The last two moves are beautiful.

  Sally Simpson: Game No.18 in Barden and Heidenfeld's 'Modern Chess Miniatures'.

Also the first game I published in my magazine 'Capa-Tal' Chess (a pun Morf would have liked. It's based on 'Capital Chess' - Edinburgh being the capital of Scotland.)

That magazine became a collectors items. I was sending them all over the globe.

I skipped from No.16 to No.18 not doing a No.17 but kept on in later editions referring to No.17 (which did not exist).

"More complaints about issue No.17, This time from Mrs Phlenge in Surrey who writes that my article proving Staunton was an ex-Welsh Miner which gave him the weak heart, which consequently led to him declining to play Morphy, had more than a few factual errors."

It drove them crazy.

  AylerKupp: <Sally Simpson> I would have thought that you would have named your magazine "Das Capa-Tal Chess".
Apr-29-18  Justin796: Lol...great pun
Apr-29-18  WorstPlayerEver: Unfortunately Black simply could have played 14... d5, therefore 14. Qg4 is a bit of a blunder.

14. Qe2 d5 15. Rxd5 which is funny, but not too funny.

  ChessHigherCat: In case anybody else was wondering why not 13...f4, which is a much better defense that "only" loses a minor piece:

1) +4.53 (26 ply) 13.f4 Qf6 14.Qe2 Qb6+ 15.Kf1 Bf6 16.Re8 Bxc3 17.Bc4+ d5 18.Qe7 Qf6 19.Qxf8+ Qxf8 20.Bxd5+ Be6 21.Bxe6+ Kh8 22.Rxf8+ Rxf8 23.bxc3
