Oct-03-03  francescog: Surely he is not the same Sergio Mariotti (Sergio Mariotti)... he would be a bit too old!
May-29-04  poktirity: Nice mate
May-03-05  Achilles87: Now thats how to win

  FSR: I guess back in those days it was obligatory to take a queen even if it led to instant mate. The "unmanly" 9.dxe4 Qex4 10.Rf1 dxe2 11.Qxe2, leaving White a pawn down, was rather better.
Apr-02-08  waustad: This game is duplicated here.
Jan-30-11  laskereshevsky: Mister Stevenson goes in town.....
And "sleeped" in a Marriott's suite
Sep-05-11  Llawdogg: Wow! Great queen sacrifice.
Jun-13-16  Dhikey: Instead of 7.f3? White should have made 7.0-0..
Feb-09-19  sea7kenp: <Dhikey>: I agree with 7 O-O.
Feb-10-19  Cibator: Going solely by the names of the players, my first idea was that the year was a century out (should have been 1968), and that the players were M A Stevenson and Sergio Mariotti, both of whom were active at that time.

And then I played through the game .... !!

Aug-19-20  schnarre: ...7. 0-0 is much preferable!

  Stonehenge: Black may very well be one of the chess playing Marriotts from Nottingham.
Oct-08-21  Jean Defuse: ...

see: Arthur Marriott

  MissScarlett: It's surely one of the Marriotts but if 1868 is correct, it's unlikely to be Master Arthur.

  Stonehenge: Don't know who changed it. I didn't.

  MissScarlett: I did.
