Kibitzer's Corner
May-01-09  just a kid: What about 10...Bf6?

I. 11.Re1+ Kf8 12.Qc5+ Be7 and the pawn will fall.
II. 11.Qe4+(or 11.Qe3+) Qe7 12.Qxe7+ Bxe7 and Black has the two Bishops.

May-01-09  sneaky pete: 10... Bf6 11.Re1+ Kf8 12.Qc5+ Be7 13.cxb7 Bxc5 14.bxa8=Q .. thank you.
May-01-09  just a kid: 13...Bxb7,then what?
May-01-09  WhiteRook48: 14 Qh5
May-02-09  sneaky pete: Then black has not won a pawn, his king is uncomfortable and Rh8 will be inactive for a long time. That's why Zukertort castled. Of course after 10... Bf6? 11.Re1+ Kf8 12.Qc5+ .. isn't necessary, white might play 12.cxb7 .. immediately.
May-02-09  just a kid: I feel though that Black's two Bishops might give him enough compensation
Jan-11-18  zanzibar: This game is wrong - Zukertort had White, along with the other two players.

It was a postal game between Breslau and Berlin, where the Berlin team members were unspecified/unknown.

Dec-30-19  cameosis: all wrong --
rosanes, j & bloch, ph & zukertort, j
vs "commission"

correspondence game between chess clubs of posen (white) and berlin (black)
