Dec-05-03  raylopez99: A blunder in a losing position. Funny how a stronger player (Larsen probably was stronger at this age, though it's hard to tell) can make you do that.

  TheTamale: Point of interest: White's Nf3 was deferred until move 20 in a King's Gambit. Fun ending; at first glance White's position doesn't look so crushing, but when you play through it Black doesn't have any redeeming options.
Jan-04-14  paul1959: According to Larsen in "How to open a chess game" (1972) this was his last King's gambit with White in a serious game. "It was a nice goodbye but a goodbye".
