Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-26-05  Knight13: WOW! What a great game won by William Lewis!
Jun-26-05  THE pawn: Lol, after watching this game, I played a few games and the exact same moves occured in one of them. ( But I never play this opening against someone strong, so I must admit that it was one of my friends, with a very low estimated rating)
Feb-04-06  Mate Hunter: Instead of 7...h6 black would play 7...c6, after 7...h6 black couldn't defence the king.
Feb-08-13  RPdigital: Great game, but Lewis missed 10.Re8#
Feb-08-13  RPdigital: And 10.Nxf7# Beautiful!
Feb-08-13  thomastonk: <RPdigital> No, you missed something.
Jul-31-16  Alexandro: Yeah that white king was in check... Lol
Dec-03-17  RKnight: Is there a clearer illustration of the need for piece development than this game? All of black's pieces except the queen are in their original squares as black is mated.

Stockfish recommends 8...c6 which drops the Black queen for less material.

William Lewis was one of the greatest players in his day.
