Jul-22-04  tayer: After 11. ... ♘e5, the move 12. ♗e3 seems to be an incredible mistake. That costs the ♕
Dec-10-06  tatarch: Blackburne really played 12.Be3?? It's hard for me to believe that.... I know he liked to play blindfolded and get drunk, maybe he did both for this game?
Jan-25-08  Knight13: Dude, come on, I fell into a cheap trick like this before in a blitz game too.

But playing after he lost a queen? Bad sportsmanship?

Apr-26-21  cehertan: Unreal. Great event for the birdman though, beating anderssen twice and blackburne
