Sep-18-04  dickweed: Wonder if Steinitz's queen-sack was intentional? Also, what is up with 13) a6, wouldn't Bc4 have saved black a minor piece?

  patzer2: What's up with 6. dxc5?! This allows Black to develop by capturing the pawn with advantage via 6...Bxc5 . Better was developing with 6. Nf3 .

  patzer2: Apparently weak is 10. Qb3? Better IMO is 10. a3 .
Nov-05-07  RookFile: Well, white didn't have a bad game, but the trick was to treat this position, as though you're playing the Queen's Gambit Accepted with a move in hand.

With this in mind, Steinitz should have considered moves like 10. a3 or 10. Nb5.

Jan-02-09  YJGYJ: Would you trade 2 bishops and a knight for a Queen? The winner did.
Apr-20-10  ariel el luchador: horrible el Ășnico merito para publicar esta partida es que fue jugada por Steinitz,ambos jugadores jugaron muy mal colgandose piezas.
Apr-20-10  uzeromay: idgi - y not the obvious 14...Bc4?
