Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-10-18  optimal play: Not 10.h3??

10.g3 was needed.

This game is from the 1st round of the New South Wales state championship played in Sydney on 4th August 1905.

The final standings were:-

Spencer Crakanthorp 9/10
William Henry Jonas 7/10
Thomas Mason Bradshaw 5/10
George W Baynes 4/10
Henry Taylour 3/10
J Spedding 1/10

Jan-12-18  TheTamale: In Taylour's defense, 11)... Qh2# is almost impossible to foresee, especially if you're nearsighted, as was Taylour.
Jan-12-18  optimal play: <TheTamale> You're kidding, right?

Heck, if he was playing blindfold he shouldn't have missed the Queen-Bishop attack on the b8-h2 diagonal!

Or was it because he didn't have his glasses he mistakenly moved his h-pawn instead of his g-pawn?
