Mar-09-08  Knight13: 40....Qxh8 ? What? But that white queen on h4 was hanging too! 40...Qxh4 is a lot better LOL, but either way wins. And those two connected passed pawns on e2 and d2 are little demons about to grow up.
Mar-10-08  mistreaver: very strange opening from Mackenzie.That gambit doesn't seem sound white loses two tempi first with 6 Bd3 and 8 Be2 and second with 9 Na3 and 10 Nc2. But in those time perhaps they didn't understand openings that well
Mar-10-08  mistreaver: I think immediate 40 ... d1Q is even better then Qxh4 but as you said game was won there

White played <40.Qh5>, not <Bh5>. Correction submitted.
