  keypusher: This was a consultation game played at an August 15 reception for the players between the 8th and 9th rounds. Pillsbury and Blackburne were White and Chigorin and Schiffers were Black.
Oct-26-09  Shams: 30.Be4 and what am I missing?
Premium Chessgames Member
  An Englishman: Good Evening: <Shams>, it's probably one typo among many--30...R8f5 looks just as bad.
Oct-27-09  Shams: Maybe it was 30.Bc4
Oct-27-09  Calli: <Shams> Actual move was 30.Bc4
Oct-27-09  tonsillolith: Doesn't <39. Rf8+> either win the rook or allow the pawn to queen?
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <tonsillolith> Yes, and e6-e7 a few moves earlier would have been crushing. If I have time I'll check the tournament book score, maybe there are more mistakes than the one <Calli> noted.
Oct-29-09  Calli: correct score is
30.Bc4 R8f5 31.Bxd5 exd5 32.Rb5 Rxg5 33.Rxd5 Rg2 34.e6 Rfxf2 35.Rd8+ Kh7 36.Rxh4+ Kg6 37.Rg4+ Kf6 38.Rxg2 Rxg2 39.d5 Rc2 40.Rf8+ Ke7 41.Rf7+ Kd8 42.Rd7+ Kc8 43.Rxg7 Kd8 44.Rg3 Rxa2 45.Rg8+ Ke7 46.Rc8 Ra7 47.Ke2 c5 48.Kd3 "and wins" indicating some unrecorded moves.

I'll try to get a pgn together with the correct players and score but can't do it today. If someone submits the correction first, please post here.
