Another King March

Having extolled the beauty of games like Steel v Amateur (Calcutta 1886) I'm always interested in seeing games that follow the same opening variation. Today I came across Chigorin v Mortimer from 1900, where Chigorin (like Steel) was happy the rest his king on e2, before marching it up the board and out of trouble. Unlike the game from Calcutta, where Black missed a drawing resource at the end, Chigorin seemed to have it pretty much under control, at least from move 10 onwards.
