Apr-26-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: If allies would battle the WWII like this, we would be lost ...
May-05-05  aw1988: Spectacular combination!
May-05-05  who: This could be game of the day - with a title like burn baby burn.

  tpstar: White could have given up a Pawn with 14. Bc3 Nxc3 15. Qxc3 Qxc3 16. bxc3 Bxc3 17. Ne2 just to chop wood, although Black could play for the attack with 15 ... Qb6 keeping Queens around. 14. c3!? weakened the Queenside and allowed 14 ... Nb4! intending 15 ... Nd3+. White tried to cover d3 with 15. Bc4? but 15 ... Qa6!! and White is lost. Maybe White lives with 15. Be3!? Nd3+ 16. Ke2, or 15 ... Rad8 16. Ne2.

Blackburne totally outclassed his opponents here.

Dec-30-05  TheKid: Blackburne's use of the Bob System yields a strong attack.
Dec-31-05  syracrophy: I wanna notice some points of this game:

-<12.Nxd5? was a mistake> It removes the castle's defenser. <Correct was 12.Qf3>

-<15.Bc4? was a mistake> The idea of this move, is to avoid 15...Nd3+, but it's not so satisfactory <The correct move was the simple 15.Be3!>

-<16.g4?? was the decisive mistake> It moves into a forced mate. <Correct was 16.cxb4>

-<When playing 16...Qxa2, Black forgets the forced mate with 16...Qa4!!:

-17.cxb4 Qc2++

-17.b3 Qa3++

-17.Bd3 Nxd3+ 18.Kb1 Nb4+ 19.gxf5 Qxa2+ 20.Kc1 Qa1++

-17.Qe4 Bxe4 18.Bb3 Nxa2+!! 19.Bxa2 Qc2++>

Feb-10-08  Millingaround: This same game is in the database as Allies vs. Blackburne 1901. This is the game given in "Blackburne's Chess Games", edited by P. Anderson Graham - game 188. Which is correct? The same game couldn't have been played twice!

  Phony Benoni: The game could well have been repeated, since White's moves are quite reasonable. It's just that Blackburne's play was unreasonable.

But I'm inclined to think the 1901 version is incorrect. It was published with the "Two Amateurs" as White in the "Baltimore American" from April 21, 1901, which could account for the date. The "American" often used material from other sources, so it could have been making the rounds at the time with the wrong information.
