Jun-26-17  zanzibar: BDE has coverage of the match, and in particular mentions that Pillsbury might have been able to win his game, with this quote from Blackburne:

<"The last ten hours of my game have been a draw. Of course, Pillsbury sacrificed his game in the interest of the match. Had the matter gone to Lasker he could not have decided except in favor of a draw.">
