neglecting of the critical d5-square
by Paulson in the late opening and
early middlegame.

Dec-15-14  Knight13: Paulsen never attempted to breakthrough on the Queenside, despite what his set-up after 24... b5 suggested otherwise. 25... a5 is better, along with 28... b4 and 30... b4. The Queenside was Black's only way forward. But Louis Paulsen could not find the courage to play ...b4. However, to be fair, chess was still very young in 1887.

Interestingly, if this game was a real-life battle, and General George McClellan of the Union had control of Black's Army, he likely wouldn't have played ...b4 either.
