|Apr-15-05|| ||notyetagm: Nice game, one very much admired by Dr. Lasker. |
|Apr-15-05|| ||fenno: Burn tried to squeeze out an attack from position that was far from ripe for it, and got punished. |
|May-28-06|| ||ColinD: 9. Qd6 should be Qb6.|
|Jan-16-08|| ||Amarande: Possibly it would have been better for White to accept the attack Black gets after 24 exd4 (instead of e4 allowing Black the passed Pawn). For instance 24 exd4 Nxd4 25 Nxd4 Rxd4 26 Bb1 Rd2 27 Qb5 Qh4! 28 Rg2 Rxg2 29 Kxg2 Qxg4+ 30 Kh1 Qd4 31 Qe2 (to prevent the exchange of Queens) Nc6, and Black has a Pawn up with a likely superior game but it is unclear whether this is enough to force the win.|
26 Nc1 may also have possibly saved the game; here a minor piece instead of the too-valuable Rook can recapture at d3, and it is not clear if Black can dislodge the blockader at all. To me the position at this point appears rather drawn (which would not surprise me given the generally drawish tendency heavy-piece endings lend themselves to).
|May-17-13|| ||estrick: There is an error in the score sheet.
9 ...Qd6 is actually Qb6 which threatens White's b-pawn and puts pressure on d4.
The error makes several of the moves look nonsensical.
|Mar-03-16|| ||zanzibar: According to the intro of his <Art of Chess Combinations>, despite being knocked out in R3, this game earned the Brilliancy Prize. |
Is this true?
If so, nobody has commented on it, or have they?
|Mar-04-16|| ||Retireborn: <z> It was one of several games which won a Third Brilliancy Prize, according to this;|
|Mar-04-16|| ||zanzibar: Thanks for that link <RB>, it's a good one to read about Burn. |
Think I'll post up the anecdote at the end too.
|Mar-04-16|| ||Howard: Thought that game looked a bit familiar...and now I see that it's in
Chernev's TMIGOCEP (see the lists below).
I was once pretty familiar with that book.
|Feb-07-17|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Fine example of how to use a counter in the center to combat a premature advance on the wing.|
|Feb-07-17|| ||Saniyat24: What an excellent game...Znosko-Borovsky's Knights created havoc, and then the rooks and Black queen closed down the game efficiently...!!|
|Feb-07-17|| ||newzild: What <An Englishman> said.|
|Feb-07-17|| ||gawain: Nice game. Another nice game is Znosko-Borovsky vs Burn, 1909, also won by Znosko-Borovsky with a fine attack.
(Though in that game Znosko-Borovski missed the most efficient mating continuation which was 38 Ba4+.)|
|Feb-07-17|| ||catlover: <Sayiyat24> True. He made great use of his pieces. He even used the advanced d pawn to great effect.|
