Kibitzer's Corner
May-17-05  mack: An extremely ill-judged King's Gambit by Blackburne. In the final position he's down a rook and pawn, plus the check revealed is completely useless. White's problems begin as early as the ugly 6.Qf3
Apr-22-14  shallowred: In the Tournament Book; Tarrasch points out interesting counter-play:

22. Rd1! (setting up Bf7+, etc.)

24... f4 (positional sac)

26... Rd8 (natural, but also sets up the combination ...Rxd6 followed by ...Be5)

27... Bg5! (threatening a double Rook sac; one on d6 followed by another on f4)

Blackburne sees all of this, but the tactics keep coming.

30...Rh6+! (allowing the Bishop to take back AND attack the Knight; winning).

This game shows how strong the 1895 Hastings Tournament was as these guys finished middle (and lower) in the pack while playing tough.
