Feb-26-08  Knight13: Black counter attacks in the center, and boom, White's attack fails. White should've played b4.
Feb-05-12  Knight13: I am impressed by Black's technique in opening and middlegame play in this game. It is beautiful and very solid, exploiting Staunton's futile attack on the flank with a counterattack from the queenside-to-the-center!
Dec-07-12  vikram2791: <Knight13>, Black's play was quite solid and would have led to a draw.White's attack not unsucessful, Black was having to react to White's every move, but after exchanging the c and d pawns and the powerful move Qc8!,Black found a good counterattack that won him the exchange, and eventually the game.

  Noflaps: At present, the header for this game states that it was played in Paris. But, wasn't this game the first game of the FIRST match? I thought only the SECOND match was played in Paris. Does the header need to be changed, or do I misunderstand. Note that St. Amant won this -- which seems to confirm that this game was the first of the FIRST match.
Dec-05-13  poorthylacine: To Noflaps: as indicated, it's the last game of the first match, played in London.

  shalgo: It's hard to believe that Staunton isn't better after move 20. What if, instead of the futile piece attack, he tries to open lines on the kingside? Perhaps something like g3, Kf2, doubling rooks on the g-file, then h3 and g4. If Black plays g6 and h5, then White can still play g4 as a pawn sacrifice.
