Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-07-05  schnarre: 31. Nd6 pretty well clinches it.
Mar-31-08  KingG: Very nice positional display, particularly for a 19th century game.

The annotations could do with being corrected though, especially the note to Black's 30th move, which should read <...Bxf5 31.Rxb8 Qxb8 32.exf5>. Also some minor points like <Castles Queen's Rook>, and in the note to White's 6th move <Qe7> should be <Qe2>.

Jul-23-09  Knight13: <Unintelligible and at present certainly unnecessary.> I wonder what Teichmann was thinking. Masters don't play an insignificant looking move without something of their own in mind?
Jun-01-11  kevins55555: Wow! Don't you think?
Dec-20-14  Smite: Instructive win, Chigorin methodically exploits routine moves.

  GrahamClayton: It is interesting to compare the knights - the White knights find strong outposts in the centre of the board, whereas the Black knights are stuck helplessly on the edge of the board.
Feb-19-19  Mini Morphy: What about 32 R b 8 hits rook R d8?
