Jul-29-09  Knight13: Nice! 1851 and someone already plays a good sicilian with Black just like modern day!

24. Bd3 is better.

May-28-19  Steakanator: Staunton makes a note on page 29 of the tourney book: "I have before taken occasion to remark that in this position of the Sicilian Opening[1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 e6], the first player may gain time and a tolerably free game by taking off the [Knight] at once, and then playing [Bd3]."

It seems that Kennedy takes those words to heart, as seen here and in some other games against Wyvill. Staunton claims elsewhere in the TB that Kennedy was a bit of an opening expert; I wonder if he had some influence on this idea?
