Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-20-04  mjk: 10.0-0? White probably though he was pretty safe--after all the exchanges, Black is uncastled, has doubled pawns, three pawn islands, and no pieces developed.

The problem is White is undeveloped and cramped.

This game is in (at least) two collections, but there is no kibitzing (until now)!

Feb-17-11  madhatter5: 8.♗xc6 is the real blunder. White, thinking that black's doubled pawns would cripple him in the ending, traded his bishop for the knight, and Steinitz pounced on the mistake by exploiting white's weak light squares and using the 2 bishops to their maximum nominal potential. Very instructive.
