In the following game, Bill Wall waits - and waits - and waits for a Jerome, finally sacrificing his Bishop, anyway. Black never develops his dark-squared Bishop, but he drops a piece to a Queen check, any way.
Wall, Bill - DrivingJoint
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 h6

9...Ke8 10.Qxa8 c6 11.d4 N8e7 12.f4 Kf7
