Dec-03-03  ksadler: I am playing through the Gunsberg-Steinitz match and came to this game and have a question: is 18. .. ♘g6 necessary? Obviously 18. .. ♘xf5 is better to attack the exposed king, but what did Black gain by this sacrifice?
Dec-06-03  Lawrence: Kirk, I let Junior 8 chew on this for a while and 18.....Ng6 is a real loser, no question about it. Maybe Gunsberg had hoped to be able to play 20.....Bf8 trapping White's Rook but 20.Ng5 precludes that.
Dec-10-03  ksadler: Thanks Lawrence, I was just hoping that there was some idea to the move, like the trapping of the Rook like you had said, but I would think that players of this caliber would be able to calculate that.
Feb-28-08  Knight13: This ...Kd7 instead of ...Kd8 and getting forced to go back to e8 because of Ng5 stuff is very uncomfortable.
Jul-14-12  King.Arthur.Brazil: I guess that Steinitz resisted to play 44.Rxf1 Kxf1, 45.Kxb5... its so much checks until promote P at a8!
