optimal play: This was game 2 in a match for the first to 5 wins, Goldsmith having beaten Fisher in the first game.
7...♘h5?! Over 20 years later, J Marshall, R Williams & S Berendsohn played 7...♘g4 to beat Harry Nelson Pillsbury in a simul Pillsbury vs Marshall / Allies, 1896
8.♘h3?! Interesting to compare with Kasparov vs H Wirthensohn, 1987 over 100 years later. Black lost in both instances but nonetheless I think 8...♕h4+ is the better move.
15...c6? Better is 15...exd5
24...♘g6 loses the exchange although 24...♖ad8 is no better, allowing 25.♗xh7+
The finish after 35.♗d2 is 35...♕e4 36.♗h6+ ♔h8 37.♗xf8 ♕xc4+ 38.♔b1 ♖f1+ 39.♖xf1 ♕xf1+ 40.♔c2 ♕f2+ 41.♔d3 ♕f3+ 42.♔c4 b5+ 43.♔xb5 ♕b3+ 44.♔a6 ♕a4+ 45.♔b7 ♕b3+ 46.♔c7 ♕f7+ 47.♔d8 and any attempt at a last-ditch defence finally runs out of steam.
After two games Goldsmith already has a 2-0 lead over Fisher in the race to five wins.
