Feb-26-03  morphynoman2: On the razor's edge! Very nice job, indeed!
Nov-25-04  milanez: what was white hoping for after 17. Bg5? wasnt 17. bxc3 better?
May-30-08  sneaky pete: Spielmann in Kagans Neueste Schachnachrichten:

4... c6!
Eine wichtige Neuerung von Bogoljubow, die den bei 3... Sf6 eingeleiteten Plan konsequent weiterverfolgt, denn jetzt droht sowohl .. b5 Lb3 b4 nebst .. Sxe4, als auch d7-d5. Deshalb ist auch die plausible Erwiderung 5.Sf3 .. nicht angängig.

5.d2-d4 ..
Dieses erweist sich, wie Bogoljubow mit Recht bemerkt, als unvorteilhaft. Die Tendenz des Zuges besteht darin, 5... b5 mit 6.Ld3 .. beantworten zu können. Aber ich hatte 5... Lb4! zu wenig gewürdigt.

Sonst kommen nur noch 5.Lb3 .. und 5.Df3 .. in Betracht. Ueber ersteren Zug siehe Spielmann vs Bogoljubov, 1923. 5.Df3 .. habe ich wegen 5... De7 (droht d7-d5) 6.Sge2 b5 verworfen, denn auf 7.Lb3 .. folgt b5-b4 mitt Gewinn des e-Bauern und 7.Ld3 .. gefiel mir wegen der Verstellung des d-Bauern schon garnicht. Bei meinen später angestellten Untersuchungen erschien mir 5.Df3 .. auch wegen 5... d5 6.exd Ld6 nebst eventuellem Lg4 als zu gefährlich für Weiß.

17.bxc Se4 18.Dxe7 Txe7 19.Lxe4 Txe4 (oder vielleicht noch stärker .. dxe) ergibt ein für mich hoffnungsloses Endspiel. Resigniert stürzte ich mich mit 17.Lg5 Lxd4! 18.Lxf6 Dxf6 19.Dxh7+ Kf8 20.Txf6 Txf6+ 21.Lf5 Th6 in mein eigenes Schwert.

In solch jämmerlicher Weise als Weißer in der Eröffnung einzugehen, muß deprimierend wirken. Ich leistete den feierlichen Schwur, kein Königsgambit mehr zu spielen, doch mit dem Hintergedanken, die Sache noch nicht verloren zu geben un 5.Lb3 .. bei nächster Gelegenheit zu versuchen. Sollte es wieder schief gehen, dan allerdings ...

Aber besser ist 18.Qh3.

A very fine game for Bogoljubow.
