  keypusher: In case anyone wants to create a "sometimes you really should resign" collection, here's a game for you. Steinitz shows how to win a R+P ending four pawns up.

  whiteshark: An even ♕♖♖middlegame until 24.Re4.

23...Qh6? was just bad, but 24...g5?? was a blunder. Steinitz, however, missed the sudden <25.Qa4+!> opportunity

with 25...Rd7/Kf8 26.e6! (now much stronger).

Sep-03-20  Cadwalla: Blackburne chickened out the bishop at 10...♗h5. Taking the knight with the pawn with check would result in a solid position against a crumbled pawn line.
