  Chessical: <28. Qe4+> Kc7 29. b6+ axb6 (29... Kd8 30. Qa8 mate) 30. Bd6+ Kd8 31. Qa8+ Bc8 32. Qxc8 mate
Jun-21-19  zydeco: Easy win for the Stonewall. I’m not completely sure why Showalter is so eager to sacrifice the exchange starting on move 10 and why Marshall is so coy about accepting it.
Jun-21-19  sudoplatov: Why 5...e6? If ...Bg4 was good with a White Pawn on f2, it should be good with that Pawn on f4.
