Mar-10-06  Knight13: I don't like how White opens up his King-side, or should I say weakens, and then gets killed by Anderssen. Obviously a mistake for Steinitz! Or maybe that's not the blunder that causes him to lose?
Oct-05-07  RookFile: Sometimes, you do play to lock the bishop out with h3 and g4. However, you don't then usually follow up with goodies like d4 and g5 designed to open up the game for the bishop.
Jan-31-12  Knight13: <RookFile: Sometimes, you do play to lock the bishop out with h3 and g4. However, you don't then usually follow up with goodies like d4 and g5 designed to open up the game for the bishop.> 17. g5 was forced; there was no better move for White in that position. 15. d4, though, is fine.
Aug-01-14  Adriano Saldanha: If Steinitz meant the plan 32. Ng6+ 33.Nxf8+ 34.Qe3++, it was really beautiful, except that the black Queen protects the 6th row and captures the Knight (kkk).
Aug-31-18  jabinjikanza: Excellent game Mr Adolf
