Nov-14-03  PizzatheHut: Could someone explain how 10...Ba6 "prevents B or Ne3" as the annotation says?

  Benzol: Well with the pin on the d pawn if either piece goes to e3 then Black can play Nxe4 I imagine.
Sep-07-04  samikd: Doesn't 23.Rh3 win too ?
Sep-07-04  drcdwil: <samkid> 23. Rh3 allows Re7 or Nb6 to guard the h7 square. It may still win but leads to complications.
Sep-07-04  samikd: <drcdwill> 23..Nb6 or 23..Nb8 loses a piece to 24.Bc5. Upon 23..Re7 comes 24.Qg6 but I admit that doesn't win as fast. Definitely the text is the fastest method of winning.
Sep-07-04  vonKrolock: Really i cannot recall a faster method of winning a game than a forced Mate in four - Excellent notes by Blackburne, do not miss it in the box beneath the board: it have analysis, humour, local flavour, good taste - as usual in B.'s writings

  kevin86: As usual,Blackburne can manage an attack well. Not to mention,he can annotate well-btw,add a little ego to <vonKrolock's> compliments.

  wwall: Better may be 15...Nxb3 16.Nxb3 Ng4 17.Qd2 f6.

Perhaps better is 18...f6 instead of 18...O-O.

20.Bxf7 looks strong.

If 20...Nxb3, then 21.Bxa7 Nxa1 22.Be3 Nxc2 23.Bh6

Best may be 22...f5 23.Rh3 Ndf6 24.Qxg6 f4 25.Bf2 Qe7

May-06-06  gauer: does anyone know where the board eventually wound up? is it the same one referred to as the one that Fischer was offered to play his championship candidate match on? are there other famous boards, pieces or clocks still around? i wonder if this particular board had any cursed squares or anything similar
Nov-30-06  gauer: compare Hromadka vs Tarrasch, 1922
Apr-17-09  WhiteRook48: 26 Bxf8# makes a funny position

<gauer>,
According to Leonard Barden, the board used in this game was the same board used in the following game:

Paulsen vs Morphy, 1857

Jun-19-12  gauer: For a 3rd similar theme, see Santasiere vs E B Adams, 1926 - answering a Tuesday puzzle.
Feb-26-14  IMFSTJP: Judging by the dust on it, I estimate around 35 years old: http://tinyurl.com/pack6kf
