   Dec-13-19 Marshall vs Burn, 1900
HarryP: Plato, I like your comment on 10-11-06. Burn was a much better player than the delightful "Pipe Game" seems to indicate. He could be tough.
   Dec-13-19 Burn vs Pillsbury, 1898
HarryP: I wonder if either player offered a draw from move 52 on. Surely Pillsbury must have. This was only their second game against each other. In their first game, at Hastings, Pillsbury won. Maybe Burn wanted revenge so badly he insisted on playing until the bitter end? He was a tough ...
   Dec-10-19 Pillsbury vs M Lewitt, 1902
HarryP: This ends with a pretty Queen sacrifice.
   Dec-10-19 Pillsbury vs C A Sommer, 1900
HarryP: This game winds up with a nice combination winning Black's Queen: 27.Bxg6!, etc.
   Dec-09-19 Pillsbury vs Oliver J Welles, 1895
HarryP: A very enjoyable game. Dark clouds gather in the first 16 moves. Then the storm breaks with 17.Bxg5! It is a violent storm that overwhelms and lays waste to the Black position.
   Dec-08-19 Pillsbury vs Deen / Lipschutz / Pelz, 1896
HarryP: After 30... Rh7, it appears that Black will win White's Bishop and thus create uncertainty with regard to the game's outcome. What should White do? 31.Rxb5!
   Dec-08-19 Pillsbury vs Showalter, 1896 (replies)
HarryP: After 25 moves, White is a piece ahead -- but it looks as though Black will win the piece back. What should White do? 26.Nc4! That's the ticket! Now, after 26... Nxb5, White pulls off a fork of Black's Rooks with 27.Nb6! What happens next is odd: Black gives White a gift of a whole ...
   Dec-08-19 Pillsbury vs J S Turner, 1895
HarryP: "And wins" is what we think after 12.b4. Pillsbury probably would have won if he had played 16.h3.
   Dec-07-19 Pillsbury vs G Marco, 1904 (replies)
HarryP: Reuben Fine makes this comment in the tournament book on Marco's 36.d4?: "an inexplicable blunder. Marco could have won very simply by 36... Raa2 37.Rxd5 b3 38.Rd3 Bxd2 39.R3xd2 Rxd2+ 40.Rxd2 b2 and White must give up his R for the P. Although Black retains his extra P after the ...
   Dec-07-19 Pillsbury vs A Hodges, 1904
HarryP: Reinfeld makes this comment in the tournament book on Pillsbury's 31.B-R6?: "overlooking the opportunity of obtaining a winning K and P ending by 31.Bxd7+ Rxd7 32.Rxd7 Qxd7 33.Qxd7+ Kxd7 34.Ke3 Ke7 35.Ke4 Kf6 36.c4!"
