  Honza Cervenka: Nice little fireworks:-)
Sep-15-04  samiam: It's mate in ten after black's 15th move (15...fxe6). Tim Harding says that the losing move was 13...Bxe5
Dec-27-04  Madman99X: I love it. Rook sac on 9... Bxc3, and then Chigorin lets him have it.
Dec-27-04  flamboyant: look like a Morphy game! very nice sac(s)
Nov-24-07  PADutchImprover: 11. Bxh7 and following is a pattern of kingside pressure from the opening worth remembering.

  master8ch: 15.Ne6+ wins spectacularly, but 15.Bg8 is more efficient and quietly elegant.
