Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-06-15  Poulsen: At this point in time Blackburne - at age 47+ was still considered among the very best in the world. Chessmetrics has him in top 5.

I am simply baffled about his play here - he plays 0-0-0 at move 15 - and already by move 19 he starts to dismantle his own queenside fortress - and for what? Just checks and tricks and nothing else.

No wonder he never became WCh.

  dernier loup de T: You really think it's possible to make this conclusion about ONE game, Poulsen? Then you could ask yourself too why he became NOT "WCh" after watching him crush Lasker with the black pieces too, in London 1899....
