Aug-10-05  elahevad: Black is wise to avoid De Legal's mate on move 6. If BxQ, then 7.Bxf7 Ke7 8. Nd5++. Black's mistake is 8. Qf6??. Nh6 defends the f7 pawn and pushes the Queen out of it's post.
Oct-28-05  DeepBlade: Black has 2 options after 10.Bxf7+

- Black King takes White Bishop, White Queen takes Black Queen.

- Black King to e7, White mates with Queen to e6

Oct-10-07  Morphyisgod: Instructive game, it is important to watch for those minor piece mates if your goin to play the kings gambit, or other opening which lead to tactical and sharp games
