  Jonathan Sarfati: Blackburne caught McKenzie and Zukertort in the same trap, winning a pawn by the unexpected retreat 13.Nd2! (threatening Nxh5 then Qh5 winnng back the piece) followed by Qf3 and Nxc4 exploiting the undefended Bb7. Zukertort lost the parallel game quickly Blackburne vs Zukertort, 1887, but strangely enough, McKenzie even won after Blackburne played indifferently Blackburne vs Mackenzie, 1887.
