  Benzol: According to the Hastings 1895 tournament book this game isn't the one that Blackburne and Burn played in the 10th round. That game was won by Blackburne as White in 37 moves. Anyone know what game this one is?

Jan-02-08  Bartleby: Surprised that we have a Hastings 1895 game here no one has kibitzed yet. I think Rookfile can feel vindicated by the Burn-bruising here.

This bout is a fine illustration of how a crucial positional mistep in a white opening gives black the break he needs to equalize, and how additional inaccuracies quickly swing the pendulum of initiative to black. Here 7. c5? starts the ball rolling as white relieves crucial pressure on the center, allowing black an easy ...e5 break a move later. 12. Be2? is a meek timewaster, and 16. Nb1? is a too slow Bird-esque re-development which relinquishes initiative to black. Teichmann logically follows through with 15. ... Ne4! & 16. ... f5; Teichmann's coordinated pieces quickly blow holes in white's King-side by move 22, and the Q-sack with forced mate in four was a picturesque way to end the game. Checkmate with a discovered check is always pleasing. Every move Teichmann did felt like it imparted a strategic purpose, whereas Burn felt like he was merely pushing wood. A nice blow from Richard V.

Addendum: Chessgames, the opening listed for this game is incorrect. It is not a Nimzo-Larsen, but a Queen's Gambit Declined Semi-Slav (D43)

  GrahamClayton: Very sporting of Burn to play 26. ♗xe5 and allow Teichmann to make a nice mating combination over the board.
