  akiba82: A brilliant game by Wall, his well known opponent having a uscf rating of 500. It has been reported that later on Greenwalt learned how all the pieces move and was able to strengthen his uscf rating to 750.

  akiba82: The tournament committee comments that had Wall found the amazing queen sacrifice 5... Qg3!! he would have recieved the first brilliancy prize.
Mar-28-04  nikolaas: That's just the same! ♕xg3 or ♗xg3, what's the difference?

  akiba82: Bill Wall must be an unusual player, he wins all his games in under twenty moves!
Apr-14-04  HailM0rphy: I think we have have found our new Morphy :)
Apr-14-04  AgentRgent: <he wins all his games in under twenty moves!> No, just the games against patzers!

<I think we have have found our new Morphy :)> Dear God! I hope that's sarcasm!

Oct-24-04  Knight13: I don't believe it! 4. Nc3?? !? That's terrible! Most people would play 4. Nf3. I think Greenwalt dosen't know how to play From's Gambit at all.
Oct-26-04  aw1988: And Greenwalt never played chess again.
Oct-26-04  Knight13: <Greenwalt never played chess again> That's sad. Plus, how did you know that anyway?
Oct-28-04  aw1988: He has only one game in the database. I was half joking. Maybe he did, or maybe he didn't. Maybe he only got in the database because he played Bill Wall.

  FSR: 4.b3?? Qh4+ 5.g3 Qxg3+ 6.fxg3 Bxg3# Pantelidakis-FSR, Chicago 1974 or so (skittles).
Oct-29-09  kooley782: <AgentRegent> I find your insults quite uninformed. Wall is an amazing player, better than many IMs (including Waitzkin, Adler, and others) and does win games against masters in under 20 moves, too.
Apr-16-11  Tigranny: I think 5...Qxg3+ 6.hxg3 Bxg3# mate is prettier.

  sfm: LOL! Just went through the 1.f4 opening explorer, didn't expect to see the move 4.Nc3 listed!
