Jan-14-11  Llawdogg: Steinitz plays a great rook sacrifice on move 36 which leads to mate in ten. Very beautiful and masterful. That was a king hunt that Zuke played out to checkmate. Great game and very instructive. I love these old King's Gambit games.
Mar-29-11  ForeverYoung: Call for help guys. What does white do after 8 ... fxg2+ 9 Kxg2 Qh3+ 10 Kg1 g3 11 Bf4 g2?

  Gypsy: <ForeverYoung> The <11.Bf4> does not feel right. Seeing this position for the first time, I'd be tempted to play <11.Qf3...>, or better still <11.hxg2 Qxg2+ 12.Kh1...>, where Black attack looks in problems and White development set to take over.
Nov-27-14  Knight13: Why did Black allow White to play e5 with 24... d5?
Aug-09-15  chessgamer2000: That's a good question Knight13.I was wondering why he played that move.

  Marcelo Bruno: After 10.… Qd8 White has the total initiative through the finish. It seems that Zukertort wasn't enough acquainted with the Salvio Gambit.
Sep-06-16  Howard: The book Steinitz: Move By Move just came out. Saw it in a bookstore today.
