Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-15-03  Kenkaku: A nice win by Blackburne. Strangely, both of his wins against Lasker came in the Old Steinitz Defense, an opening Blackburne seemed to think was dubious (as I do).
Jun-19-05  gambitfan: I played this position today several times with a fan of the Philidor Defence...

White should win !

After 8... Ne7

better is : 9. Ff4 ! it points towards the d6 case which is the weak point of Blachk...

Jun-19-05  gambitfan: the idea being .... 10. o-o-o... to exert strong pressure onto the d6 square...
