Aug-01-04  Knight13: Very nice way to attack the black king!
Sep-29-05  Fischer of Men: Am I dreaming or did Steinitz miss 27.Qe4#?
Sep-29-05  Happypuppet: He did. Maybe he went for a more romantic finish.
Sep-29-05  aw1988: Beautiful! Bxg7!
Sep-29-05  aw1988: Well, no, Bxg7 is fairly obvious. Qxh7!! is very hard to see.
Sep-30-05  Joseph21: He saw it Qe4# but he just want to eat pawns before a checkmate.gotcha
Sep-30-05  who: Fritz finds 18...Nc3 - a move I'd probably never see which keeps black in the game.
