Sep-27-07  psmith: Time to link to some games won by Steinitz in open positions. This one is not a bad effort. And no comments yet.
Dec-10-10  rapidcitychess: Very nice game. You would of expected white to win after that huge pawn roller on the queen side.

May-29-18  Telemus: 10.. ♗e6 looks like a blunder because of 11.e5!.
