Jan-06-09  YoungEd: White leaves his queen on the e-file too long and Blackburne picks up a piece. And that's all she wrote.

The game has some interest for its opening, though. Are Black's second and third moves actually good? I don't know.

  fredthebear: One could play chess their entire lifetime and never see Black start out a game this way! It does make a lot of sense to fight for the long diagonal.

This game wraps up with a tactical concept that comes in handy: Make a single threat w/a gain of time (check or threat to capture a more important piece) as a stepping stone to a double threat, in this case a knight fork.
