Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-08-06  Far1ey: Nice, very pretty pawn push.
Jul-08-06  khense: Against Steinitz, black couldn't afford 3...h6. After 6...d3 he's road kill.

  Phony Benoni: In my younger days, there was a fellow who played 3...h6 to avoid the Fried Liver Attack beginning with 3...Nf6 4.Ng5. I dubbed it the "Chicken Liver".
Jul-08-06  dakgootje: I actually like playing the black side of the 2-knights defence, which indeed could end up with a fried liver attack. Though as black you have to know a little about the opening that you dont play into too deadly variations like friend liver or something like the perreux variation

  kevin86: Steinitz told Holstein to mooooooove over and Holstein complied.
Jul-08-06  Boomie: He certainly milked this position dry.

  tamar: Holstein should have kicked the bucket after 16 d7!
Jul-08-06  RookFile: These were in Steinitz's younger and livelier days, when he was dubbed 'The Austrian Morphy'.
Jan-30-09  WhiteRook48: nice sacrifical game
