  kevin86: Two nearly familiar names:
Benjamin Raspael-victim of Buffalo Bill (SILENCE OF THE LAMBS)and Wilbert Montgomery, former RB of Philadelphia Eagles.

Game is good variation of Legal's mate-guess what? Here white captures blacks queen first!

Aug-05-04  athyn: 10 .... Kc8 ???
I wonder if white would still win.
Aug-05-04  sneaky pete: <athyn> After 10... Kc8 11.Qd2 Qb6 12.c3 .. white wins. .. Ne2+ on move 11 or 12 doesn't help.
Mar-21-06  McCool: 10. e6. was whites best move I think.
Jan-04-14  thomastonk: The Black player was Hardman Philips Montgomery, see http://www.chessarch.com/excavation.... Correction slip submitted.
