Jan-06-05  Knight13: 13. exf5 is met by e4!. 13. Be2 dxe4 and it is crushing the King Side. Good play by Staunton.
May-16-07  Knight13: Complete domination of the center.

7. Qe2 might be a better move. 6. b5 is completely unnecessary

  Honza Cervenka: 6.b5 is quite bad but only 7.Bd3 loses the game. 7.Nxe5 0-0 8.d4 d5! (8...d6 9.Nxf7 Rxf7 10.Bxf7+ Kxf7 is also possible) 9.exd5 (9.Bxd5 Nxd5 10.exd5 f6 11.Ng4 Qxd5 12.0-0 Qxb5) 9...Nxc4 10.Nxc4 Qxd5 11.Ne3 Qxb5 is nothing special for white but at least he is still in the game.
