Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-18-05  lronTigran: 13. Qe5+ ends the game after either king move.
Sep-02-07  frank124c: It seems to me that Black's 9th move was wrong 9. ... Be7. Black should have captured White's Bishop with his Queen and he would have been considerable material ahead. Am I right or wrong?
Sep-02-07  frank124c: can i delete tht last comment i now see the pawn capture!
Oct-28-07  Whitehat1963: So Blackburne beats a rubber ball in a game of chess. Big deal. I'm not impressed. I think I could have won in under five moves.

Mar-21-14  estrick: 9. Bg5?

Black has a resource here as shown in this game where White is punished for this move.

Hebden vs M Stean, 1982

Mar-21-14  estrick: Correct is 9. Qe2+
as demonstrated in this game played by Morphy more than 20 years before this game was played.

Morphy vs Anderssen, 1858

Mar-21-14  estrick: Blackburne also played 9. Bg5 in an eight game simultaneous blindfold exhibition eight years later.

Blackburne vs J N Burt, 1888

Blackburne was apparently quite pleased with both of these games, as evidenced by his inclusion of them in his volume of Selected Games. In his comments about this game with Wilson, Blackburne notes, "...the opening of this game bears a curious resemblance to the well-known game of mine with Mr. Burt."

In his annotations he states that 10. ...f6 is Black's best defense.

.

Morphy played 9. Qe2 against Anderssen in 1858, but Blackburne was either unfamiliar with that game, or believed that 9. Bg5 led to a more decisive win, not being aware of Black's resource on the 10th move.
