May-04-05  schnarre: A well-played Queenside attack!
May-04-05  caballos2: Although one has to say black played like a patzer...
May-04-05  schnarre: Passive play doesn't pay!
May-29-14  dernier thylacine: I do not agree with the judgment of CABALLOS2: it seemes Czarnowki defends very well until his unfortunate blunder of the 20th move; after for example 20...g4 instead, Steinitz would still have a hard work before winning this game; possible would be a continuation like 21. h4!? Ne4 22.Qc2 g3 23.f3!? and so on...
Jul-21-17  jumboshrimpscampi: I spent a while trying to understand why White played 11.h3. I was wondering why he couldn't just play 11.Ne2 instead and launch the same queenside attack without playing h3. I was unable to come up with an answer on my own. I came to the conclusion that 11.h3 is a defensive move, but I don't understand what threat it is addressing. Does anyone have any advice on that?

White probably didn't want to deal with ...Ng4, harassing the Be3 and h2 pawn.
