   Nov-14-20 Zukertort vs Blackburne, 1883
 
jeff6789: 28.Qb4 is a very spectacular move, certainly the high point of the game. Another quieter move I really like in this game is 21.Re3. As black I would really start panicking faced with this move which allows the R at the right moment to swing over to g3 or h3 putting even more ...

jeff6789: Black should have played on a bit longer instead of resigning. The comment above "If 15 ... Kf7, 16 Qf5, with devastating Threats" does not seem to be correct. In fact after 15. ...Kf7 the move 16.Qf5 is a blunder that loses a piece to 16. ...Qxe6 17.Qxe6+ Kxe6 18.Nc7+ Kd7 19.Nxa8 ...

jeff6789: I wondered about 37.Qg1 too so I checked it out with the computer. Black plays 37. ...Qf3 and the N on e2 is pinned and attacked by 3 pieces and defended by 2. White must lose the N on e2 or give up the Q or get mated really quickly.

jeff6789: 26. ...Rb8 is much better than the move played. It threatens to win the B by 27. ...Rc5 so white has to play 26.c3 which both loses a P and gets a bad position. OK so I found this using a computer to analyse while reading Michael Stean's book Simple Chess. That book is really good.

jeff6789: Does anyone know whether the first moves played were 1 d5 e6 2 Nf3 f5 as in chessgames.com or 1 d5 f5 2 Nf3 e6 as in Chernov's book Capablanca's Best Chess Endings. I suspect that the chessgames.com version is correct but I'm only guessing. Just curious.
