Nov-17-04  Knight13: 19... Bxe4!? Can somebody explain what this move mean?

  tpstar: Black missed 21. g3 Removing the Defender and winning a piece, so it was 19 ... Bxe4?? instead. Better 19 ... Rxf3 20. Nxf3 Qf6 21. Qd3 but White is winning.
Nov-28-04  aw1988: I love these annotated games by Blackburne. 20 moves go by and Black has a lost position and you have no idea how he got that way.
Nov-28-04  azaris: <aw1988> I think his first move might have had something to do with it, but that's just me.
Nov-26-06  Maatalkko: <aw1988> That's true. Blackburne only comments on the tactics. It's pretty bare-bones.

  Zenchess: I think Black's mistake may have come earlier. Steinitz would have played 15...d6 here, taking away the e5 square for the Knight and then followed it up with ...e5 himself.
Jan-14-12  maxx4.68: Mr Black Death very often change his bishops and virtuously attacked with two knight.
Dec-28-14  poorthylacine: Blackburne likes to change his bishops and virtuously attack with two knights... This reminds me Chigorin...
