  GrahamClayton: 39...♔e7 to bring the King to d8 to defend the c7-pawn and free the Rook was better.
May-30-11  pjohnsontennis: Though 62 moves, this game looks to me to be positionally won for White after move 13!
Dec-23-14  poorthylacine: To offer the exchange of the rooks at move 51 is anyway a mistake; black could make the work much more difficult for the opponent by 51...Rd7!
Mar-13-16  zanzibar: Agree with <poorhylacine> about the rook exchange.

White has a clearly won endgame, increasingly so. Still, one has to wonder about Blackburne's 55th move:

(White to move after 54...c6)

White retreats the knight with 55.Nd4 instead of the obvious fork, 55.Nd6+, that really should end the game there and then.
