  Chessical: Pillsbury shows his extra class over his American contemperies. Five years earlier, Hanham was 2nd-3rd in the 1st United States Chess Association tournament, but here he is torn apart after one very loose move <11...cxd4?>; <11...h6> had to be played.

If <18...Rae8> then 19.Nfe5+! Bxe5 20.fxe5 f5 (as 20...fxe5? 21.Rf3 mate) 21.Bh6 Qd7 22.Nf4 Ke7 23.Bg5+ Kf8 24.Bf6

A bravura performance by Pillsbury.
