  keypusher: Steinitz combines his way into a self-mate.
Oct-06-07  RookFile: The bishop on d5 was a tremendous piece: the way Chigorin put it there and launched an attack looks completely modern.
Nov-21-07  PADutchImprover: Did Chigorin see through the possible game continuation on Rd2?
Feb-27-08  Knight13: 23...Nxg2 was probably played hastily. Steinitz probably stopped looking after ...Qxd2.
Jan-17-11  Llawdogg: If there were no bad sacrifices, then the good ones wouldn't look so beautiful.

  Honza Cervenka: Instead of 23.Rd2 white could have played 23.Bxf7+! with idea 23...Kxf7 24.Rxd6 Qxd6 25.Nxe5+ Rxe5 26.Qxf4+ .
Feb-21-15  Smite: Yes Pad, I'm sure that Wil saw that the rook was unprotected :)
