  Chessical: Black had an unexpected opportunity to save himself with: <16...Ke7> 17.Ba3+ <Bb4!> 18.Bxb4+ (as 18.cxb4? is a mate in one with Qd1).

Jun-29-05  InspiredByMorphy: <chessical> Nice post! After 16. ...Ke7 not only doees black have the defensive resources to stay in the game, but also has the advantage of the fact that whites knight on h8 is trapped.
May-23-07  brazos: Gamescore should read Qc4#
The london defense seems inferior to me, also I don't understand 7. e5 7. Bc3 seems better to me, you can always advance the pawn later. Thoughts?
Mar-12-08  wolfmaster: 7.e5! was Walker's surprising novelty.
May-23-08  frank124c: Bxf7+ sac--Isn't White's Queen kind, to take an elderly King for a walk and then put him out of his misery
