Aug-17-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Wow. What a finish!
Jan-12-14  sleepyirv: Calvary of Kossak's.
Jul-17-16  exGeo: After 17: King to h8 it looks like white has a mate in 2. 18: Rook takes rook, King to h7. 19: Knight to f7- mate. Am I missing something?

  fredthebear: <exGeo> You are correct. Black could also try to interpose the queen to no avail. That line is 17...Kh8 18.RxRf8+ Qg8 19.NxQg8# (discovered check by the White queen).

Some might say that Kossak's game version is prettier, as the en prise White knight escapes to deliver checkmate while forking the royal couple.

Nov-26-17  evzal86: 16. Qxd5 ? Nxh6 is too obvious!

  scutigera: <sleepyirv>: Actually, Dufresne's Calvary, thanks to Kossak's cavalry.
Nov-26-17  Ironmanth: The glory days of the Evans!

  thegoodanarchist: Good thing Black was checkmated. Otherwise he loses his queen.

19.Ne7 is a nice Coupe DeVille

  catlover: This game makes the Evans Gambit look good. Leaves me wondering where exactly Dufresne went wrong.
Nov-26-17  faulty: Dufresne gained chess immortality by losing games in the right style
Nov-26-17  njchess: Checkmate in 19 moves, and this is the slow variation!

  AylerKupp: <ardeejo> You can ask him, but don't expect a quick reply.
