  fredthebear: It feels like Steinitz played this game with 20 White pieces, never lacking for more wood. Just after 11.0-0, he seizes an unrelenting initiative that clears the forest.

14...c6? was not a good move, but White was threatening a queen sacrifice on the back rank for a queenside Opera Mate of sorts (Black's own pawn prevents diagonal escape).
