Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-25-05  Laskerfan82: Meitner played well, but the young Weiss held on and should have attained a draw were it not for his inexplicable blunder 65...exf4??

It's odd that a player of Weiss' caliber -- even if he was relatively inexperienced in 1882 -- would not see that this loses, whereas sticking to the same "wait and see" plan (...Rb2-b1-b2-b1, etc) would have easily drawn. Weiss was renown for his positional insight, and this should have been straightforward position for him to handle. It's possible that Weiss was frustrated with himself after a disastrous 0.5/3 start, and that after falling behind in this game he just caved in and stopped focusing.
