May-13-05  stuck: I guess the obvious question is "Why did Pitschel resign after 14. ... g5?"

It loosens the kingside, but I see no obvious game losing blunder here.

May-14-05  sneaky pete: It seems hardly possible on move 14, but he lost on time (information from the tournament book).

The pgn says rnd 2, but in fact this was the second game of the first round match between Steinitz and Pitschel.

  offramp: Contd from this one: C Pitschel vs Steinitz, 1873, "Steinitz's second match was with Blackburne."

See Blackburne vs Steinitz, 1873...

Apr-10-21  cehertan: I wouldn’t say 14...g5 loosens the kingside, I’d say it appears to win outright more or less. Another case of database randomness. My guess would be steinitz clawed back into it somehow and Pitschel flagged many moves later.
Apr-11-21  Granny O Doul: 14...g5 seems well answered by 15. f3, though I'd at least wait for White to play it before I let my flag fall.
