Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-15-03  AgentRgent: Was Chigorin really on the white side of this game?
Aug-09-09  mandy64: Chigorin was not lost after 11.Nxc7, because after 11..Bd6 12.Qb5 refutes black's plan. His last blunder was 15.Rd1. Insteda, 15.Re1 Ne5 16.Qxe5 Bxe5 17.Rxe5 Qg6 18.Rg5 Qe4 19.Nc7 is not really bad for white (2 knights and rook vs. queen)
Mar-24-14  ralph46: Blacks 5th move ..d5 leads to a white advantage but whites 7th move Bxd5 was a very bad move and later on the knight tour to win the rook on a8 cost to much time so white was dully punished
Sep-02-17  ughaibu: Rather sharply punished, I'd say.
