Dec-17-08  WhiteRook48: I recall Morphy played a game like this, giving odds of moves...
Dec-17-08  ILikeFruits: what...
black rook...
Dec-23-08  WhiteRook48: do... you.... mean...
what.... happened... to... black.... f7... pawn
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: what... happen... to your... posts... I like fruits...
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: 52....Ra3 surprised me. Why was that a draw? Agreement?
Jan-02-09  WhiteRook48: sure must. I'm tired of these master draws. 8-)
Jan-19-09  WhiteRook48: wait, not really a master draw. That would be 1. e4 e5 1/2-1/2. This game was ridiculous.
Jan-19-09  WhiteRook48: I think this is the best Lowe-Staunton game.
Jan-25-09  WhiteRook48: so somewhere Lowe blundered the extra pawn back... but I was playing through it so fast I didn't see it...
