Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-06-05  paladin at large: Attractive game by Chigorin, who withstands black's counterattack. Chigorin keeps the pawn plus into the ending, and with his king leading the way converts the pawn plus into passed a- and c- pawns escorted by the king. Blackburne's rook cannot cope with both and his king is too late to help.

Rubinstein had the same successful technique with unconnected tandem passed pawns in a game with, I think - Réti.

Sep-06-05  Juan De Pisto: In spite of being famous for his tactic eye, seems to me that Chigorin knew a good deal of the position. His setup against the french is also interesting, I think he used a lot that Qe2, Bg2, like a proto Kings Indian Attack :)
Jul-23-09  Knight13: 8...d6 followed by ...Nbd7 is more preferable.
