Nov-12-05  Averageguy: A nice final combination, white promotes after 123...Kxe7 124.Bf6+ which forces 124...Kxf6 and then white wins with 125.d8Q+.
Nov-12-05  Assassinater: Was the 50-move rule in play at this time? From 32... Ke7 to 82... Rab8, not a single piece was captured.
Nov-12-05  Averageguy: <Assassinater> I believe that the 50-move rule is that the game is drawn if 50 moves goes by without a capture or a pawn move. There were several pawn moves betwwen moves 32 and 82. But you make an interesting point, was the rule in practice back then?
Dec-11-05  who: After 91.Rxa5 I don't see how black can stop white from queening the d-pawn.
Jun-17-06  Chessmaster9001: 89...R5a3 Black can finish with mate!!!

very comic game indeed

  Pawn and Two: <who> 91.Rxa5 is not possible because Black's rook is on a6.

The game score is incorrect. Black's 88th move was 88...R2a5, and his 89th move was 89...Ra3+.

  Pawn and Two: <Chessmaster9001> 89...R5a3+ is not mate as Black's rooks are on a5 and a6.

The game score is incorrect. Black's 88th move was 88...R2a5, and his 89th move was 89...Ra3+.

Dec-28-07  meteficha: Hmmmmm....
Jul-22-09  Knight13: 82...Qc7 would've been more logical, since if Black wanted to draw he should've blocked all possible penetration points.

  kevin86: The long blockaded position is finally broken with Blackburne gaining three passed pawns!
May-07-15  RookFile: I sure wouldn't want to have the black pieces in this game. A game like this makes you want to give up chess.
