Nov-25-13  Sebastian88: Wow this is my lucky day. A not commented Chigorin vs Steinitz game! I think that 5...dxe4?! is not a good move. After 5.Bb5?! (Better 5.d3!? Nge7 6.Be2 Be6 7.Be3 - With chances for both sides) better is 5...Ne7 6.d3 Be6 7.Qc2 a6 8.Ba4 Qd6 9.0-0 0-0-0 10.Nbd2 and g5!

<CB>,<NIC>,<365> + TB G-188 p167/195 all have

<42...Qc6> and not <42...Qc8>.
