  Honza Cervenka: Wow! Very interesting game.
Jul-10-03  actual: both players 'threw caution to the wind'
Apr-10-07  PolishPentium: Might not 29 Qe4+ have been better? No interposition possible. // Earlier, not quite sure why White didn't play Qg6+ back on move 19, rather than move 22.

  Phony Benoni: <"I suppose this game was played at twenty moves an hours, and time pressure overtook Pollock when he most needed to deliberate. Yet in the game I lost to Lasker at cambridge Springs, he made nine diabolic mvoes at a stretch, in less than three minutes, under prssure!"> -- William Ewart napier.
