Nov-25-03  raylopez99: Evan's Gambit accepted--ouch! 7...dxc3 is a bit too greedy?!
Aug-25-08  chocobonbon: Zukertort reputedly played a 1000 games with Anderssen (maybe much more than that). I guess meanwhile Steinitz was scutinizing Morphy's gems. The player vs. the Thinker.
Jun-28-09  WhiteRook48: ouch! Tricks on the a1-h8 diagonal!

  keypusher: This looks to be Steinitz's last Evans Gambit with White in a "serious" game in the database.
