Sep-06-05  Juan De Pisto: Add that Schiffers was a very old player! Maybe for this Chigo was overconfident.

Schiffers was only 6 months older than Chigorin. They were both about 45 when this game was played.

Jul-23-09  Knight13: <Autoreparaturwerkbau: Even master like Chigorin can play blunder like 12...f6? I don't believe this!> Even modern 2600 rated players play this type of blunder once in a while.

  vonKrolock: Pillsbury:<" 8...Qf5 9.Rxe4+ Be7 10 Nxd4 Nxd4 11 Qxd4 Be6"> Or 9...♗e6 10.♘xd4 ♘xd4 11.♕xd4 ♖d8!

And white should neither check in 'a4', nor take the 'a7' ♙

Nov-29-14  Knight13: Having gone over half of the games played between Schiffers and Chigorin from 1878-1880, it's almost as if Chigorin wasn't paying attention in this game. What the heck?

  Straclonoor: After 12....f6? only 13.Bxf6! goes to win, as Pillsbury mentioned in comments. 13.Qe2? also was bad - 13....Bd6 gives for white only slight advantage.
