  GrahamClayton: Maybe Black should have played 15...♖ab8 to contest the open b-file.
Sep-12-14  bengalcat47: Black's mistake was Nc6 at his 5th move. The Black b-Knight is commonly developed at d7 to leave open the possibility of moving the c-Pawn to c5. Of course this opening was being used here 19 years before Pillsbury introduced it at Hastings in 1895, soit wasn't well known in 1876.
