Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-20-07  outplayer: Is there another game between the same players, same colurs, in the same year where white played 21.a4?
May-29-08  sneaky pete: There is no other game with 21.a4 .., but Spielmann recommended a2-a4-a5 with an eventual b5-b6 in his notes, claiming better chances for white. He questionmarks 21.Qd7 ..: "Played to hurriedly. I wanted to win quickly and in the process overlooked the manoeuvre Ne7-c8-b6, which chases away the queen with weighty loss of tempo."

18.Sf3-h4 ..
Ich hätte mich sowohl als Weißer, wie als Schwarzer mit Remis durch Zugwiederholung begnügt.

18... Dg6-h7
Doch mein Gegner spielt auf Gewinn und muß deshalb seine Dame auf ein so entlegenes Feld stellen. Das hätte ihm leicht die Partie kosten können.

21.Dd3-h7? ..
Zu hastig gezogen. Ich wollte schnell gewinnen und übersah dabei das Manöver Se7-c8-b6, das die Dame unter schwerwiegendem Tempoverlust zurücktreibt. Gegen den Bauernstürm am Damenflügel mittels a2-a4-a5 und eventuell b5-b6 hätte Schwarz bei seiner Verpackten Stellung vergeblich angekämpft. Nach dem Fehler im Text gewann Schwarz nach hartnäckigem Kampfe durch sorgfältige Verteidigung. Für meine Zwecke ist die Partie schon hier zu Ende. Sie empfehlt nicht gerade das Königsgambit, beweist aber nichts gegen dasselbe, nachdem Weiß remis halten konnte und Schwarz dem Remis unberechtigter Weise ausgewichen ist.

  DarthStapler: 39. Nxg8 is bad because...?
Jul-11-11  sneaky pete: White is at this stage far beyond good and bad. 39.Nxg8 Rxg8 40.dxc5 Qxc3 with ... Qxe5 next is similar to the text.

In my quote from Spielmann's notes, 21.Dd3-h7? .. should of course be 21.Dh3-d7? ..
