Mar-03-06  ckr: If St. Amant had played 28...Nb6 I think Kieseritsky would have resigned. St. Amant must have been too focused on the Qa1# play to have missed something so obvious. Good example of tunnel vision.

At least it did not cost him the game.

Apr-26-06  soberknight: By the way, this game probably holds a record that will never be broken for the total length of the players' names. :)
Mar-22-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Indeed, officials should cut their names a bit in pregame.
May-29-08  Xeroxx: Original opening, perhaps this variation should be named after the plaiers names?

...perhaps...
