  MichaelJHuman: How can this be a win for black?

Sep-05-05  IT4LICO: Black is 3 pawn down, why should not be a loss?
Sep-06-05  lopium: AhahahahzzZ!!!!! ahahahahzz
I guess the game was anotated as a win for black, then changed it for a loss, which is comprehensible because black will have 3 pawns less than white.... funny. ! ahahahz.
Mar-04-07  viv001: Can anyone explain me why did white lose?
Mar-04-07  Calli: "Alexander" was a very early beta version of Fritz that had a huge programming bug when calculating endgames. ;->

  Phony Benoni: This was a loss on time forfeit, according to this crosstable published in the <British Chess Magazine>, Aug./Sept. 1883, p. 303:

The time control was 20 moves in one hour, with a five minute grace period being granted once a game if requested in advanced by a player. Move 40 would thus have been the end of the second time control; perhaps the grace period had been used earlier.
