May-23-06  zb2cr: Hmmm. White has two immediate mate threats: 40. Re7# and 40. d5#. Black can't defend them both. A very workmanlike performance by Blackburne.
Oct-05-06  prinsallan: Funny: The black king is completely trapped.
Dec-13-07  timhortons: mate in one
Oct-13-08  Xeroxx: What an anti-lomax for black.
Oct-24-08  thebribri8: Leave it to Blackburne to create a mating position in a rook-pawn endgame!
Dec-09-08  ughaibu: Amazing annotation at white's third move. Who'd've thought that Nc3 needed to be "introduced"?

  MissScarlett: Harding (2015): <The game with Lomax, published as Graham #253, was probably from this exhibition.>, referring to Blackburne's 10-board blindfold simul in Manchester on April 26th 1862.

A reasonable assumption given that Lomax was amongst the ten opponents named in contemporary accounts, but more definite confirmation comes in the form of the score appearing in the <ILN> of June 14th, p.620.

Staunton laments after 13...Ne4, <Black is certainly a most accommodating antagonist for a blindfold player, since, instead of embarrassing his unseeing opponent by complicating the game, he goes out of his way to simplify it.>
