  eternaloptimist: The Dutch is the Opening of the Day today & this game is the debut of this very interesting & exciting opening. This is 1 of my favorite openings & Saint-Amant is the chess player who invented this aggressive reply to 1) d4.
Aug-09-15  Christoforus Polacco: ''Stonewall'' is my patent to avoid boring English Opening.
Oct-09-16  Aunt Jemima: Looks like 14. b5 started to cause white some trouble. I think 14. Rc1 would have been better. After this, it seems like white could never quite overcome his disadvantage. Walked played nicely to end it.
