Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-21-05  paladin at large: Chigorin wins a rook and pawn ending with a better king and coordination.

32. Re6 would have been an improvement, I suppose. The black e-pawn comes off and it is harder for black to then defend his h-pawn, no? The text move helps the black king go where he wants to go.

37. Kf1 seems better, getting the white king into active position. The text move is passive and proven wasted by black's next move.

Nov-28-14  Knight13: I don't know much about the Danish Gambit, but I think White should've kept up the pressure with 6. e5.
Jun-02-21  Whitehat1963: <Knight13>, after 6. e5, analyzing one move at a time, Stockfish suggested that black takes the lead and never relinquished it. It yielded the following:

6. e5 Bb4+ 7. Kf1 d5 8. Bb5+ Nfd7 9. e6 fxe6 10. Bxg7 Kf7 11. Bb2 Nf6 12. Nf3 c6 13. Bd3 Nbd7 14. Nbd2 Qe7 15. g4 Ba3 16. Qb3 Bxb2 17. Qxb2 Nc5 18. Ne5+ Kg8 19. Be2 Nfd7 20. Ndf3 Qg7 21. Rb1 b6 22. Rg1 Nxe5 23. Nxe5 Bd7 24. g5 Rf8 25. g6 h5 26. Nf7 e5 27. Rd1 Bg4 28. Nxh8 Qxh8 29. g7 Qxg7 30. Ke1 Qf6 31. Bxg4 hxg4 32. Rxg4+ Kf7 33. Kf1 Ke6 34. Rg2 d4 35. Qc2 Kd5 36. a4 Qf5 37. Qa2+ Kd6 38.
