  InspiredByMorphy: Whites opening play is poor. 2.Bc4 allows the bishop to get pushed around to 7.Ba2 where the bishop is bad. Black should have continued to calmly develop instead of the rash 7. ...Nd4

  Eggman: Interesting to see a game from over 150 years ago in which the combatants play out a basic ending which is not only drawn with best play, but in which White has really no chance to make progress.

Jan-17-12  sicilianhugefun: Great coordination of rook and bishop from both sides.

  kbob: At the end, black correctly positions his rook on the third rank to prevent the white king's advance. When white plays 88. g6, his king can no longer hide in front of the pawn, and black can switch to a rear attack with 88. ... Rc1. A trivial point perhaps, but the plan chosen by black would lose if the white pawn and king were any more central.
Feb-10-16  morfishine: Two more moves and I'd be at my Witz end
