Feb-19-04  Kenkaku: Beautiful queen sacrifice by Pillsbury. This is probably his best game vs. NN.
Feb-19-04  TrueFiendish: Wow. This was played blindfold, by the way. And naturally he sacced the queen, not the bishop.
Feb-19-04  Kenkaku: Just a testament to his blindfold skills (Pillsbury is indisputably one of the all-time greats of blindfold chess). If you enjoy blindfold games, this one by Blackburne is perhaps the greatest I have yet seen NN vs Blackburne, 1871
Jan-31-07  Sibahi: This should end with # instead of +.
