Oct-05-15  Knight13: I don't think Morphy would've approved of 12. h4, 13. h5, 14. hxg6. But it worked.
Jun-28-16  sneaky pete: 19.Qf3 .. (instead of 19.Qf2 ..) aloowed black to play 19... Bxb2

threatening mate on e1. The capture with check on d5 isn't worth much.

Schallopp (in the tournament book) recommends 16.Kd1 .. as a safer move (than 16.Kf1 ..).
