Aug-20-03  Kenneth Sterling: There is a rather nice ending in this one. 32. e5 breaks into the heart of black's postion, and is followed by the stunning 33. Nx6+.
Jan-09-05  Jafar219: Nice game!
Jul-01-08  madlydeeply: This is fun this here "guess the move" experience. I suppose you could look at every game this way...if'n you ain't such a lazybones. Chigorin is very meticulous at building up attacks I have learned...
Jul-17-09  Knight13: 26...Qxe6 seems safe.

24...Nh4 is a waste. ...Re8 is better.

  InspiredByMorphy: <Knight13> 26. ...Qxe6 loses a piece to 27.f5 Q(moves) 28.Qh5+ . You are correct in 24. ...Nh4 being a waste. 25. ...Bxe6 is even worse without being able to capture the pawn. I think blacks position is already lost by the 24th move. 10. ...f6 threw this game away. 10. ...Nge7 was better.
