  zanzibar: The truth be told, I prefer to agree with Harding as much as possible.

Like here, where 21...Nd8 is given by the TB, and also Harding - Blackburne.

See <TB G-39 p58/65>

<Harding - Blackburne G-574 p264>

According to Harding, the score align again after Black's 34th move.

I wonder what Gillam gives?

Modulo date...

According to Harding

<Blackburne, throughout his career, was curiously liable to be swindled by Mackenzie>.

I suppose this is an example game.
