shr0pshire: And there is that Bishop move again. Hmmm, I am really going to have to sit down to think about the rationale to that move. 7. ... Bc5 seems weak.
Move 8. Qf3 is another weak move. Who did Judd think he was playing?!? he is not going to get a checkmate like that agianst Bird. Also it is a very transparent attack. Once black refutes it with 8. ... Qe7, then white's queen becomes misplaced, and white essentially wastes a move with that. A better thought would have been to develop his knight and his bishop in order to attack/defend.
I don't think that the bishop trade on move 12 was a good idea either. white can just leave the bishop htere and if black trades on his own accord, then white can use his knight to take back, or use a pawn, and gain some time back that way. However, white doesn't do that, and loses time and some attacking power by trading off the white bishop.
A positional blunder was that white castled very early without having any defenders for the white king except the queen and the rook. This isn't a good idea. White was playing too romantically, and needed defense strategy, and that is the reason why black won. Black was thinking positionally, and white wasn't.
13. Nb3? Again this is a dubious move. Was defense even a thought in Judd's mind during this game? there is mounting pressure on the kingside, and white moves a possible defensive piece over to the queenside.
After that it is the queen to defend her man "the king". lol
Anyway, this was lost very similarly to H Davidson vs Bird, 1876
