Staunton's comment in the Tournament book, as a footnote to Black's resignation: "Let the reader compare this game, which would be discreditable to two third-rate players of a coffee house, with any of the match-games in which Black has taken part heretofore, and say how far the result of this mere mockery of Chess is a proof of the absolute powers of two men who are called proficients."
