May-09-16  RookFile: Steinitz plays 6. Bc4, later to be Fischer's favorite weapon.
Jul-04-21  sakredkow: Pretty little kingside havoc to end the game.
Jul-06-21  Stolzenberg: With 6. ... Nge7 instead of 6. ... Nf6 Black missed the opportunity to probably become the first player ever to reach the Fischer-Sozin Attack (B88).

18. ... Kh8 looks like a waste of time, because the king returned to g8 three moves later. Perhaps immediately 18. ... Ng6, threatening 19. ... Qc5+, would have been a better defense.

Mar-12-22  Stolzenberg: Perhaps simply 7. ... Nxd4 8. Qxd4 Nc6.
