Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-26-03  WhoKeres: After White's 8th and 9th moves his game was almost lost. It wasn't a good idea to give Blackburne the two Bishops and a lead in development! Paulsen could have resigned a few moves earlier as he was totally busted by move 20.
Mar-14-15  latvalatvian: Something happened here. Unusual in chess.
Jul-13-21  Stolzenberg: The opening became a Ponziani Opening, Spanish Variation (C44) by transposition: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. c3 d5 4. Bb5 dxe4 5. Nxe5 Qd5 6. Qa4 Ne7.

Instead of the ugly <16. f3?>, 16. Qg5 was necessary in order to reduce the black pressure.
