  wwall: I wonder why White resigned here. It looks like White is winning after 28.Qc4, threatening the c6 and the e5 pawn.

Black had a better move earlier with 25...Rxg2 (threatening 26...Rhxh2 mate) instead of 25...Qxf1+. If 26.Kxg2, then 26...Qxe6.

Oct-16-15  thomastonk: <wwall: I wonder why White resigned here.> The game is incomplete. It is game no. 778 in Walker's "Chess Studies". The only comment is: "Finally won by G.W."

The game is also contained in Jay Whitehead's database, and there it has the additional move 28.♕c4. This indicates that there is another source, possibly Walker's column in "Bell's Life".

The event "Unknown-around 1830" above is wrong. The game must have been played during Cochrane's visit in England in 1841-43. Whitehead gave "London 1842".

Glad to see Walker win this one. He was a good player from the pre-Morphy period. He had a nice style. The ending looks pretty sharp.
