   Sep-14-17 Pillsbury vs Chigorin, 1896
 
lame duck: <rea: Who knows what date it actually was--remember that Russia was on a different calendar (Julian, not Gregorian) from the rest of the world at the time.> In the tournament book, edited by Emmanuel Shiffers in St-Petersburg in 1896, this game is dated by December 28, 1895.
 
   Sep-14-17 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1896
 
lame duck: Em. Shiffers in the tournament book writes that Steinitz played all this game very fast and nervously, and complained for insonmia during previous night.
 
   Aug-26-17 Lasker vs Tarrasch, 1896
 
lame duck: <Chachaman: All the good chess players are Jewish!> It is not exactly so. Chigorin was Russian. Capablanca was Cuban. Alekhine was Russian. Weren't they good chess players? The list goes on...
 
   Aug-12-17 Schiffers vs Pillsbury, 1896 (replies)
 
lame duck: <keypusher: A fine game by a little-remembered master> Emmanuel Shiffers was considered as the strongest chess master in Russia until he was overpassed by Chigorin in all-Russia tournament in 1879. In Hastings 1895 he was the 6-th - very good result, taking in mind that only
 
   Mar-12-17 Zukertort vs Steinitz, 1872
 
lame duck: <hottyboy90: Is 7..d3 known to theory or was it an innovation at the time?> This move was in Anderssen's repertoire, he played that way with Mayet and Dufresne in 1851
 
   Mar-11-17 Zukertort vs Steinitz, 1872
 
lame duck: The key point of the game was at 28-th move: [DIAGRAM] After long and heavy defence Steinitz managed to retain a pawn and was close to repel all threats. He played 28... Qb1+, and this move was estimated as a good one in a tournament book. There was an obvious defending move
 
   Nov-20-16 Tarrasch vs Pillsbury, 1898
 
lame duck: 19... Qd7 was a decisive mistake, after which 20. Rxf6 kxf6 21.Qf3+ and 22. Qxh8 wins a pawn and consequently a game. I think Pillsbury played 19... Qd7 to prevent 20. Qg4, and this would be OK if rook were on h8. Zydeco, in case of 19... Rxg6 the 20. Qf3 followed by 21. Rh4 and ...
 
   Nov-13-16 Janowski vs Pillsbury, 1898
 
lame duck: At any case, respect to Janowski that he managed to find the correct way in complex position and to defeat such strong opponent as Pillsbury. Nice game!
 
   Oct-30-16 Pillsbury vs Tarrasch, 1898 (replies)
 
lame duck: <screwdriver: Usually the bishop and knight beat the rook and pawn> Correct, they beat, if they are more active, and all weak pawns are protected. First black needed to restrict white rooks, and for this they should have vertical lines kept as closed as possible. 27... Bf8 ...
 
   Jun-26-16 Lasker vs Steinitz, 1896 (replies)
 
lame duck: <Calli> Actually Chigorin's analysis is wrong, because white has better option: after 32. Nxd6 (instead of 32. Nec5+) 32. ... Kxd6 33. Re6+ Kd5 (33... Kd7 or 33... Kc7 is worse because of 34.Rxg6 and 35.Rxg7) 34.Rxg6 Rc7 35.Ree6 the position doesn't look like equal.
