|Dec-22-03|| ||CapablancaRules: If I had not seen the names of the players, I would think that White was a NN! Blackburne completely for got the development of the pieces, whlie NN punishs his adversary like a master! Enjoyable game! |
|Feb-03-04|| ||sharkey the snowman: good gravy! Any chance this was Morphy 'in-cognito' playing Black? |
|Feb-03-04|| ||TrueFiendish: Hard to imagine Blackburne playing like this...maybe the names were inadvertantly reversed. |
|Feb-03-04|| ||fatbaldguy: They must have been reversed, because it's even harder to imagine NN playing like this, having seen a collection of his (her? their?) games... |
|Feb-03-04|| ||TrueFiendish: White's moves 5 to 8 all lead to nothing--they're truly patzer moves, and that's coming from an expert on the subject. :-) |
|Mar-21-04|| ||vonKrolock: a NN that played like this deserved to have his real name registered... by the way, in the english version off L Pachman's "Modern Chess Strategy" there are some games from a player named "Beratende" ... this means in proper translation "players consulting"... |
|Mar-21-04|| ||fred lennox: It's as if Blackburnes modus operandi is how many bad moves can I make before I loose? Or that he could only move his knights and queen. Really, it's hard to imagine a respectful NN playing this bad. |
|Mar-21-04|| ||chessgames.com: <the names were inadvertantly reversed> That's happened before, and it might be the case here. If anybody can find a second source for this game we would greatly appreciate it. |
|Apr-05-04|| ||N N: the names were not reversed! mean people! |
|Sep-25-04|| ||Knight13: 14. g3?? Blackburn should moved his King by 14. Ke2. |
Deadly attacking game.
|Jan-31-05|| ||GreenDayGuy: Oh... my... gosh. This game has only one purpose: to make people like me feel better about themselves. :) |
|Jun-29-05|| ||sfm: This game just can't have been played by the famous Blackburne as white. Big mistake after mistake, e.g. in moves 7, 8, 10, 11, 13 and 14. The position is lost after black's 10th move.|
No way, not even in a simultaneous exhibition where he had emptied a bottle of Whiskey and had been kicked by a horse.
|Jun-29-05|| ||Knight13: 11. d4 is a mistake. 13. c3 is also a mistake. Blackburne played terrible! This game would fit more if it was NN vs NN.|
|Jul-14-05|| ||Rocafella: Black's 15th move was quite superb!|
|Jan-18-06|| ||Ludamad: Blackburne would never play like this!|
|Nov-03-08|| ||Honza Cervenka: <Knight13: 14. g3?? Blackburn should moved his King by 14. Ke2.> It would lose outright for 14...Bg4 pinning and winning the Queen. In fact, 14.g3 was the best move here. White went astray with 8.Nd5 and also 10.Qg3 was hardly the best choice. 15...Bf2+! is a lovely coup that white probably missed.|
|Dec-22-08|| ||zzzzzzzzzzzz: BB should have castled earlier, but i really like how NN played that decivise tactic Bg4|
|Dec-31-08|| ||WhiteRook48: silly Blackburne. Shows what happens when Blackburne's white instead of black.|
|Mar-15-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 15...Bf2+! is not an NN move!|
|Jan-20-11|| ||GrahamClayton: <vonKrolock>a NN that played like this deserved to have his real name registered...|
According to “500 King’s Gambit Miniatures” by Bill Wall, (Chess Enterprises, Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, 1986), Black is a player named Lea.
Lea is JP Lea, a player and composer from Bath. Here is a study that won Lea a first prize in an 1882 competition. White to mate in 2 moves:

|Jan-20-11|| ||Tigranny: It's nice when NN wins. He/she learns new things in chess.|
|Nov-21-12|| ||Tigranny: Forgot to add, don't take a win away from NN just because Blackburne played horribly. The names are not supposed to be reversed.|
|Jun-15-13|| ||siegbert: it must be a simul loss. everybody has a bad day at the office!!!|
|Jun-15-13|| ||thomastonk: From the "Birmingham Daily Post" of October 29, 1890, we learn that the game has been played the evening before in a 8-game blindfold simultaneous exhibition against the 8 strongest players of the Birmingham Chess Club. The result was +1, -1, =6. This game was the first to be finished and the Black player was J.P. Lea.|
Furthermore, it is reported that for the first time Blackburne had some problems. After about half a dozen of moves, he had to check the position of two neighboring games with the help of the opponents' game scores.
|Jun-16-13|| ||siegbert: TOO much whisky perhaps!!! They always report blackburne drank whisky at his simuls. perhaps he had too many drams!!!|
