|Jan-09-04|| ||Whitehat1963: What a blunder by the world champion to end the game! |
|Mar-15-05|| ||Hanada: Harry Nelson Pillsbury beat Wilhelm Steinitz 6 to 5, with 3 draws.|
PILLSBURY has many of the top player's number. I think he surely may have become champ if fate had not stepped in.
|Mar-15-05|| ||percyblakeney: That's not impossible. It could be worth mentioning that Steinitz was a bit over 60 during Pillsbury's last wins, though. As late as in S:t Petersburg 1895/96 (a few months before his 60th birthday) Steinitz scored +4 -0 =2 against Pillsbury. |
|Feb-07-06|| ||BobbyBishop: I just find it utterly amazing that at the time of this game, HNP had only been playing the game for 4 years!|

|Sep-27-07|| ||RookFile: This game was likely played at the Boylston Chess Club, at its original location on 48 Boylston street. Now the club is in Somerville MA, a fitting place, since Pillsbury was born there.|
|Nov-01-07|| ||RookFile: Pillsbury also beat Steinitz at a match where Steinitz gave him odds of pawn and move.|
|Nov-01-07|| ||aazqua: What a horrible game all the way through. These guys are really awful.|
|Nov-02-07|| ||RookFile: Well, Steinitz obviously made some mistakes, but did Pillsbury too, and if so, where?|
|Jan-02-09|| ||Capthahn86: When looking at this game, it reminds of the Petrosian vs.Spassky World Championship Match 1966 Game #10 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1966|
|May-29-10|| ||crawfb5: Pope's book on Pillsbury says this game was one of a 20-board simultaneous given by Steinitz on April 7th, a few days after the 3-game pawn-and-move odds match Pillsbury won.|
|Dec-01-10|| ||Owerbart: I'm in complete agree with Hanada. Pillsbury really deserved that World Title.|
|Aug-26-17|| ||wwall: Looks like the losing move was 25.Kc2. White had to play 25.Qe1, and if 25...Na6, then 26.Nc2 and 27.b4 should hold for White.|
Instead of 26...Rd8, Black could have played 26...Qxc3, and if 27.Rc1 or 27.Qc2, then 27...Nxe4 wins.
