Feb-28-05  rochade18: I wonder why they seldom tried anything else than just e4-e5. It must have been terribly boring after some time. I think I would never have played e4 in those times just to "punish" my opponents' notorious e4-opening repertoire.
Feb-28-05  aw1988: You have to understand that it is 1815 and opening theory is not quite up to par.
Feb-06-08  wolfmaster: White was certainly not just a Woodpusher.
Jun-20-09  WhiteRook48: and he's certainly not <Woody Wood Pusher>

  wwall: Doesn't Black win after 42...c5 instead of 42...Ke6? After 42...c5 43.bxc5 Bxc5 44.Ne4 Bxa3 45.Nc3 b5 looks like a winning advantage for Black.

After 42...c5 43.bxc5 ♗xc5 44.♘e4 ♗xa3 45.♘c3 b5 looks like a winning advantage for Black.

What is Black's win after 46. ♘xb5 ♗b2 47. ♔g5. If the a-pawn advances, White sacrifices his knight for the pawn, leading to a draw. Does 47...♗xf6+ 48. ♔xf6 ♔c6 lead to a draw with with again sacrificing his knight for the a-pawn?
