Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-10-05  laskerdog: What a cruel victory by the old boozer. 9.-, e5 was a blunder, leads to trapped Q.
Oct-18-08  thebribri8: Haha. Blackburne is picky! He wasn't content with just winning the rook.
Jan-10-12  DrGridlock: Curious opening classification.

It starts out with 2 Nc3 and the bishop fianchetto, but after 6 d4 and 7 Nxd4 we're into the open Sicilian.

  GrahamClayton: Loye opens the door for the White knight to lodge on d5, and Blackburne walks right in!
