|Feb-21-03|| ||kostich in time: Spiellman beat Vidmar like a child..This is particularly remarkable, as Vidmar was in terrific form at Semmering(But Spiellman did win the tournament, so he was probably in better form).Wellmuth includes the game in the Golden Treasury of Chess, even though it isnt particularly.."brilliant"in terms of sparkling sacrifices, etc.Perhaps its just because Spiellmans win is so rapid and drastic.Interestingly, there is not a single Vidmar win in the whole Golden Treasury..Ican think of at least ten that could be put ina Silver treasury:) |
