This is me and my 10th move paying homage to:

Browne vs Bisguier, 1974


W Schmidt vs A Kuligowski, 1978

I played 9.Bc7 to stop him castling so that is my Queen's Bishop on an odd looking square - now what I do with my King's Bishop?

Super sportsmanship from my opponent for letting it go to mate. We had many very interesting games over the years. When we were due to meet in the club championship people used to come to the club just to watch the game.

A good win but I'm still losing sleep over.

R Austin vs G Chandler, 1980

I think you mean.. 23.Ne5 Rc7 (not Rc2) and 24.Nxf7+ is not mate.. Kc8

Thanks, I've been waiting two years for someone to correct that variation. :)
