Feb-09-04  Whitehat1963: You've got to love that back rank.
Jan-24-07  wolfmaster: Good Tuesday puzzle after 16.Ndf3.
Feb-08-14  davide2013: There are many games like this played by Staunton, and this is what makes me perplex upon the real strength of Staunton as player. In my opinion he shouldn't be higher than 1500-1800 USCF.
Sep-27-14  dernier thylacine: After his very grave pneumonia of 1843 which followed the match against Saint Amant, Staunton never recovered completely his capicity of fighting , his heart remained weak, but he was to proud and did not confess it, or only much later.
