Oct-25-04  Knight13: The strong e file.
Jun-17-07  waddayaplay: This game is from the third cable chess match between Great Britain and the United States, that began on March 18, 1898.
Jul-03-09  Calli: Once again, Pillsbury seems to have the advantage. The almost routine 19.Qb3+ Kg7 20.d5 produces a lasting initiative. Blackburne might go in for complications with 9.Qb3+ Be6 20.Qxb7, but White should have the edge in that line too. Instead Pillsbury played the drawish 19.Re5.

Pillsbury went on to beat Blackburne twice in the tournament at Vienna that year, but still was winless in the cable matches.
