Who are 'the authorities'? What did they call 'safe'? What game were they talking about? This game? Why were they 'way off'?

Feb-25-05  aw1988: <offramp> Yes, it is for this game; read Blackburne's annotations. My joke is that Blackburne never really tried when annotating a game.

  offramp: Sorry, aw, I hadn't noticed Blackburne's notes! They were easy to miss.
Aug-23-05  mjk: The whole point of 3.d6 is to deny White's pieces access to e5 -- too bad Black quickly abandons this idea.
Oct-05-06  prinsallan: 20. Bc4 is just so simple and beautiful.
A striking move! - Of course back was lost no matter what, but still.
Aug-17-07  chessamateur: <offramp> Personally I like Johann Jacob Loewenthal 's notes. He sounds so sophisticated.
Jan-14-12  maxx4.68: Free and can not survive after mistakes c6,h6,d5.

  louispaulsen88888888: The key to annotating back then was to be vague but colorful and sophisticated.
