  GrahamClayton: Apparently this is the only game as White by Chigorin where he played 1.d4.

  GrahamClayton: Some sarcastic comments by Tarrasch in the tournament book about Albin's play:

7...♘h6 - "The Knight rests safely here for the next 30 moves"

62...♖esigns - "Now that Black has missed the right moment to resign, he might as well have waited for mate."
