Aug-07-08  mate2900s: what a slugfest
Apr-23-18  Delboy: Excellent choice for Game of the Day with wonderfully resourceful play by black (though the first ten moves or so are not exactly the sort of stuff great games are made of)
Apr-23-18  jith1207: What a hidden gem!

  piltdown man: Nice game, lame pun.
Apr-23-18  madlydeeply: Zwischenzugilicious
Apr-23-18  morfishine: Exciting swash-buckling type of game. Rare for Blackburne to be outcombinated in such a contest
Apr-23-18  lzromeu: Will be anice puzzle
Black to move

  takchess: A pun that I am feel obligated to respond " don't it "
Apr-23-18  yureesystem: Strange game, Blackbunre was winning and he played very bad and lost. Maybe too much whiskey.
