  Honza Cervenka: Chessgames.com, according to chessbase.com database this game continued with additional 69.Kd3 Ng6 70.Rh2 b5 71.Kc2 Be7 72.Rf2 b4 73.cxb4 Bxb4 74.Kd3 Rd1+ 75.Ke3 Bd2+ 76.Kf3 Nh4+ 77.Kg3 Be1 0-1
Jun-26-05  lentil: 29. Rxb7? Bb4!
Oct-09-11  Robeson: White's 8.Bb5+ and 9.Bd7+ has to be one of the worst opening continuations in all of late 19th century chess. Chigorin was an incredibly strong and creative player but he wasn't nearly as good a strategist as his leading peers of the era, Steinitz, Em. Lasker, and Tarrascch.
