How can you say that! Atwood was a patzer.

Jun-09-05  hintza: LOL! That is the best possible game link you could ever give to someone who bangs on about Philidor all the time! :-)
Jun-10-05  Jaymthetactician: Actually, I'm Philidor on the queenalice site, and have a Philidor picture on my chess.ac site! (but am Jaymthegenius, and am known for my tactical play, as in the following game's:

  InspiredByMorphy: <Jaym> In your first game , white made a viscous blunder with 9.h3? while still in the opening. In your second game black should have played 5. ...Be7 instead of 5. ...Bc5? which does nothing but sit behind a pawn which obstructs its diagonal for the remainder of the game. 5. ...Be7 would have prevented black from having to play ...Be7 at a later point anyhow. For example 14. ...Be7 15.h3 g6 equalizes. Look at the main line for black. It recommends 4. ...Be6 followed by 5. ...f6 Opening Explorer
Jan-07-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: How about that for a king hunt .... lovely display from the black! Adorjan would say "Black is OK!" :)
Feb-02-08  wolfmaster: <JayM> Atwood was not a patzer, he was able to defeat Philidor. Anand occasionally blunders, but do you call him a patzer?
Feb-02-08  wolfmaster: This is a copy...
Oct-26-08  Kiborg007: 14. Bf1 Qxh1 15. Bb5+ , and he takes queen, like Morphy:)
Jul-26-09  just a kid: Sheer diaster for White.Makes you think why NN would play the king's gambit.
Jul-26-09  just a kid: <Kiborg007>14...Qxc2 is better.
Jul-26-09  Steven87: <just a kid> No one can "know" they'll be an NN when the game starts!
Jul-26-09  just a kid: <steven47>True...
Jul-26-09  crwynn: 18...Qf2?? 19.Re1+??

Good Lord what kind of game were they playing back then?
