  pawn to QB4: Think we've missed a treat here, with the game version ending on move 33. WH Cozens has it that Showalter staggered on with 34.h4! and by the time he resigned on move 57 his king had been hunted to the 8th rank. I'll submit it if I can figure out how to.
Mar-26-13  rookhouse: <pawn to QB4> You are correct in that this game was indeed a 57-move affair that was won by Pollock.

Also, it was the seventh game of their 1891 (not 1889) match that was played in Georgetown, KY (not New York) and won by Showalter 6.5-5.5 (two of the factored games being played in the 1891 USCA tournament in Lexington, KY).
