  Honza Cervenka: 25...Bd7 was a blunder. 26.Qg5 would have won easily, for example 26...Rxe6+ 27.Kd1 Rg6 28.Qxd5+ etc.

  Honza Cervenka: Better defence seems to be 26...Bxe6 27.Qg5 Rf7 28.Be5 Bf5 29.Bxg7 Qxc2+ 30.Ke1 Re8+ 31.Kf1 Bg6+ 32.Bf6 Rxf6+ 33.Qxf6 Rf8 34.Qxf8+ Kxf8 35.Rf3+ Kg7 36.Rxd5 etc.

  Honza Cervenka: 36.Qxd7+ is more than sufficient but I guess that 36.Qf8# would have been slightly better.:-)
Apr-29-09  WhiteRook48: White was very clever
Nov-18-13  poorthylacine: They played quickly I guess, if not Kieseritzky would have made just checkmate by 36.Qf8...

Nevertheless the game is nice...

Although there were no time limits in those days, some players did, as Poorthylacine says, play quickly. This game is not a psychedelic as most of the others I have seen from the 1840s. In fact it could almost be from the 1850s.

It looks like he did miss a mate in one. Back to the scatomancer, Lionel!

Apr-15-17  clement41: Perhaps 36 Qxd7+?! is an oversight, perhaps it was just played as a way to make fun of the black player

those were the days
