C85 Winning with the Double-Delayed Exchange Variation

The exotically named   Madame Zvorykina mops up her opponent using the rarely played "Double Delayed" (or "Delayed Deferred" in some sources) Exchange Variation of the Ruy Lopez. Somehow moving the KB 3x in the first 6 moves looks dubious, but not in this game! Since I couldn't find a picture of Madame Z I've posted a stamp commemorating Ruy Lopez, although it's hard to believe his likeness isn't simply the product of someone's imagination (or is there a surviving painting of him?)
