  TheAlchemist: A beautiful game by White, capped with a nice Queen sac! Puzzle material, perhaps?

Mar-02-15  Phony Benoni: Is there any confirmation for the date? "Ken" rather than "Kenneth" just seems a bit odd for 1869, and the move order 1.d4 Nf6 wasn't much played then either.

I guess the date is wrong, here both Wheeler and LeBlanc are mentioned:
