  akiba82: Excellent game by Ware against a player soon to be in the top ten. Weiss went on to share first prize with Chigorin at NY 1889. Steinitz offered him a world championship match following that event, but Weiss declined.

I think that Black's losing moves were the time he wasted with his knight - 13...♘a5, 14...♘c4, 15...♘a5 and 18...♘c4, while White moved his pieces into position for a successful attack.
