Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-13-14  Whitehat1963: What's the best response to 13. Bxe7, or is it a forced mate from there?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: From a pragmatic, as opposed to theoretical, perspective, 5...Nxd5 was virtually the losing move. Even in a simul, no amateur should ever let a player like Steinitz play the Fried Liver Attack.

  Joshka: Is this the year Paul finally met Wilhelm, and they just spoke briefly, but not about chess???
Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: Anyone have any info on where this simul was held? Near the French Quarter maybe??
Premium Chessgames Member
  jnpope: Played January 2nd, 1883, at the Chess Club on Common St., which I believe is barely outside of the French Quarter boundary.

Black was in a Generes mood.

Jul-19-19  myhilarioususername: Black had a chance to save the game after 10.Bg5 the computer says 10.... h6 is pretty much equal.
