Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-26-08  Knight13: Steinitz won positionally and beautifully, using his knight as best as possible and plus his good bishop vs Mackenzie's bad bishop really put set the ending to 1-0 waaayyy before Mackenzie even resigned.
Oct-26-19  SymphonicKnight: The losing move was 58...Re6? The draw was still easy with Rg8
Oct-26-19  Carrots and Pizza: Steinitz' play was so clear and purposeful in this game. He seemed to play so logically and the outcome was never in doubt. First he plays actively with his knight, taking his time getting it to the perfect square. Using it to harass the enemy on the king side. Then he uses his better bishop, alternating the attack on Black's weaknesses, finally resulting in the win of material and a passed pawn.

I wonder if this game is in one of those old Chernev books? It certainly is instructive.
