  Honza Cervenka: 33...Rh1+? was an awful miscalculation. 33...Qxf3, 33...Qc4+ or 33...Rh2 would have won the game easily. 35...Qxg4?? shows that even superb tacticians are not immune to chess blindness.

  keypusher: Now here's a funny thing. On the link to this game page at my forum, the player of the White pieces is named "Kieseritzky." On this page he's named "Kieseritsky." How can that be?

The former is the way he spelled it himself, which seems like it ought to be entitled to some weight.

Feb-26-14  thomastonk: <keypusher> The name in the game score seems to be independent of the player's name in the header. Just today I observed that one of my requests for a name change was satisfied only partially: Steinitz vs W J Wilson, 1862.

As someone with experience in software development, I suppose that we have to arrange with the implications of a mistake made in the early days of cg. Such things happen everywhere.
