Sep-04-05  Rohan: In Queen pawn openings (eg Torre) the type of position with the bishop sac on h7 or g6 gives a v. strong attack ( winning?) - here Pillsbury got 3 pawns for the bishop as well-This is simple and effective strategic plan because it is easily understood and implemented.

Jun-11-11  bengalcat47: Somewhere long ago I saw this game analyzed in a now out-of-print book that was written in descriptive notation. If anyone knows the title of the book I'm thinking of please let me know.

  Pawn and Two: <bengalcat47> This game appears in descriptive notation with annotations in, "Pillsbury's Chess Career", by P.W. Sergeant and W.H. Watts.

If you are interested in the Monte Carlo 1902 tournament, you may want to obtain a copy of the book, "Monte Carlo 1902" edited by A.J. Gilliam. This book is in algebraic notation, and includes good annotations. The annotations included for this game were from the Wiener Schachzeitung.

  Mateo: A convincing victory. However, Pillsbury could have won even faster. 13.Qd2! was nice. 13...Kxh7 14.Qh6+ Kg8 15.Ng5 Bxg5 16.Bxg5.
