Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-05-13  RookFile: Pretty cold blooded play on Staunton's part. It appears to be an excellent defensive effort.
Jan-30-19  PatrickGJr: 11. Knid2 preparing RfE1 is probably the strongest move in this position, not to mention the serious problem of the bishop hanging upon B4, the Knight making it's way to E4. In sample line. 11.) Knid2, QF5,12.) Rfd1+, Kc7 now 13.) Bf6 with greater threat so to Be5+ forking the King and Queen, with the 2x- Threat of also having BxKnig8. And black is lost given all moves where the King moves leads to Mate and if the Queen leaves the F5 space, white has QE5+!! Which also will inevitably lead to Mate.
Jan-30-19  PatrickGJr: Above I meant 12.) Knid2 and 14.) If the white Queen leaves F5 then Qe6+, to which if the Queen leaves the rank,Qb5+ forking King and bishop.
Jan-30-19  sneaky pete: After 12.Nd2 Qxc3

I can't find anything promising for white.
