|May-12-13|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Perhaps too famous a game for a Sunday puzzle, but still worth playing over, again and again, just to study the power of the initiative, the ability to make threats. Lasker is perpetually one move away from consolidating, but Pillsbury keeps the attack rolling with one threat after another, and each threat forces Lasker to weaken his position just a little bit more to avoid even worse--until he can't avoid the worst. Also, Pillsbury seems to have taken to heart Lasker's own dictum: when you see a good move, wait, don't play it; there might be a better one.|
|May-12-13|| ||agb2002: <An Englishman> has already said what I think (not a puzzle, but chess culture).|

queen dandy be to 20.Qd4 threatens h8 rook he bin feed in so hold onto your hats right gg edge off re you target rook heffalump by deed your time,
prodding off pawn up in f6 once barrier bed down in,

to address the needs of tender visceral mast in c7,
has to be covered when 22.ne5 it now in nearly joke,
at tease a wave in bottle d7 e8 white g4 or even better g5,
I'd term a logical one for find cascade,

|May-12-13|| ||Everett: <"We played the position whenever we met, which was often. Years we played it, here and abroad. It became a bore.">|
I had thought it was at least a bit more of an OTB creation than this. Seems Pillsbury analyzed the tar out of it.
|May-12-13|| ||montree: An ideal game to study pin, fork, double attack etc. Wonderful!|
|May-12-13|| ||FlashinthePan: Doesn't 28...Rc5 instead of 28...Bd7 hold for Black?|
|May-12-13|| ||Everett: < FlashinthePan: Doesn't 28...Rc5 instead of 28...Bd7 hold for Black?>|
This loses to <28..Rc5 29.Bxe6#>
|May-12-13|| ||FlashinthePan: Thanks Everett, I totally overlooked this move, as I was focused on preventing both the knight fork on e5 and Qh5 and missed the obvious.|

My pleasure to be of help. Many kibitzers have helped me similarly, sure you will do the same soon! Enjoy the site...

You should have pointed out that Cambridge Springs itself has stayed in the same place.
|Aug-23-15|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Given that White's Knight becomes such a deadly piece (the final move is 30.Ne5), Black might have played 18...Rxc4!?; 19.Qxc4,Bc6 leaving himself down the Exchange for a pawn. I have not looked too closely as the resultant attempt to defend with a fortress, but 20.Bf3 might knock down the walls, hoping for ...Bxf3; gxf3 followed by Kg1-h1 and Rf1-g1.|
|Aug-23-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: <LIFE Master AJ: BTW
I wrote the CG staff yesterday.
Move 18 (for Black) ... ... ...
IS COMPLETELY INCORRECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was 18...Qb5, not 18...Qb4?; 19.NxP/e5. >
Somewhere along the way in the last 5 years it was fixed, because now move 18 for Black is as you said.

No sir, it has definitely NOT stayed in the same place!
It has been revolving around the Sun and also rotating about the Earth's axis, for 111 years now since this tournament.
Enough with your tomfoolery!!!
|Aug-23-15|| ||morfishine: Fantastic effort by Pillsbury especially considering his disease was so far progressed he would suffer the first of two debilitating strokes within the next 6 months, would try to commit suicide within the year and was dead in two|
|Aug-23-15|| ||morfishine: <offramp> I agree with both you and <thegoodanarchist> Of course Cambridge Springs hasn't moved, but in a sense, it has|
|Aug-23-15|| ||TheFocus: Has it really moved, or just moved on when it completed it's mission?|
|Aug-23-15|| ||offramp: <morfishine: Fantastic effort by Pillsbury especially considering his disease was so far progressed he would suffer the first of two debilitating strokes within the next 6 months, would try to commit suicide within the year and was dead in two.>|
It was a bad two years. He was also being pestered by a book-of-the-month club.
|Aug-23-15|| ||rea: Cambridge Springs is still right there on US 19 between Pittsburg and Erie, PA|
|Aug-23-15|| ||morfishine: Hastings hasn't moved either, here's a photo to prove it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hasti...|
|Aug-24-15|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: <offramp>, gasp! No! Not a book of the month club!|
|Aug-24-15|| ||kevin86: The good doctor takes it on the chin.|
|Aug-26-15|| ||thomastonk: Indeed a pretty finish of Pillsbury. But, - for heaven's sake! - why did the world champion play 19.. exf4?|
|Aug-04-18|| ||paladintanks: Pillsbury waited another 10 years since 1894 to play the same variation in which he lost in brilliant fashion|
|Dec-29-18|| ||HarryP: This is one of the greatest games ever and should be in the top ten for 1900-1909.|
