  GrahamClayton: This game was actually played on the 16th of October 1906, at the Birmingham Chess Club. The player of the Black pieces was Herbert Ernest Price.

Blackburne may have won quicker by playing 21.♘f5+ ♗xf5 22.♖xf5 ♗xa3 23.♖xg5+ ♔f8 24.♖f5+ ♘f7 25.♘e5.

Jun-12-12  ForeverYoung: I took the time to play through this game on my board and pieces and was very pleasantly surprised by the brilliance of Herr Blackburne! Considering that it was played in delivering a simul is even more creditable!!

  Phony Benoni: Over the last few moves, Blac kburne seems more concerned with setting up the final mating position than playing the most efficient moves. But who can blame him?

The en passant trick means that White played the first 41 moves in a ing's Gambit without moving his d-pawn!

Blackburne was just a few weeks shy of his 6th birthday.

This prodigy would also turn out to play well at an older age.
