Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-04-05  sneaky pete: Anyone with a blunder collection interested? Bachmann suggests that Steinitz still "saw" his Rh6 on g6, so after 26.gxh4 Bf3+ 27.Kf1 Rg6-g1# might follow.
Oct-06-07  RookFile: Yeah, well. Steinitz lost so many times to the Evans Gambit that it's hard to keep track of the reasons.

  lame duck: Em. Shiffers in the tournament book writes that Steinitz played all this game very fast and nervously, and complained for insonmia during previous night.
