Kibitzer's Corner
May-04-04  fred lennox: A positional jewel. In it's way, as beautiful a victory as the famous victory against Blackburne played in the same tournament.
Oct-21-04  Larsenb3: That's true to the truest sense, it seems Zukertort concentrated on utilizing that from the time the opportunity was visible.
Sep-04-16  Master M: Wow! A marvelous game with marvelous endgame. Really a game to learn.
Nov-09-19  SymphonicKnight: A great game using the variation named after Zukertort himself, which is unique from 12...Na5. It is indeed played well, and Blackburne's tenacity makes it a Zukertort masterpiece.
