   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.
 
   Apr-19-15 Winawer vs Steinitz, 1883
 
lame duck: Playing 25... f5, Steinitz prepared a nice trap, and Winawer got into it by his 28th move. If he played 28. Ne6 Qxg2+ Kxg2 29. fxe3 Nxf8 30. Bxe8 Rxe3, he got a rooch and two pawns for a bishop and a knight, which is not that bad. But after 28. Be2 Ne5! black wins. Very nice ...
 
   Feb-25-15 Chigorin vs Zukertort, 1882
 
lame duck: It looks that after 20. e5 Chigorin considered the reply 20... dxe5, after which he was going to play 21. Rxb6 Qxb6 22. dxe5 Qd8 23. exf6 Qxf6 with advantage. But Zukertort played differently. Zukertort was good player, I must say.
 
   Jan-18-15 Mackenzie vs Blackburne, 1882
 
lame duck: Wonderful game! What is really amazing is how the white king, like a trapper, captured the black king. By the way, 50.Ra1 was not needed, white could play 50. Rh8, because in the pawn endgame occuring after 50... e1Q 51. Rxg8+ Qe8 52. Rxe8+ Kxe8 white wins easily: 53. Ke6 Kd8 54. ...
