whiteshark: here is the game-related repost:
David Bronstein aggrees with you. <For his wins in Petrsburg 1909, Dus-Chotimirsky was called 'the scourge of champions'.>
Btw., here is how Bronstein describes their KG encounter Dus Chotimirsky vs Bronstein, 1954, nearly 1/2 century later (200 Open Games):
"As soon as my oponent played 2.f4. I heard his angry: 'Either you take the pawn or I do not play!' There was nothing I could do; I accepted the old maestro's gambit.
"Several moves later Dus Chotimirsky played a hurried move and, whilst I was considering my reply, decided ... to change his move. Spectators gasped and judges wanted to stop the clocks. But Fjodor Ivanovich suddenly shouted at everyone: 'What on earth is this? I just made a bad move and now I am changing it for a good one. To hell with rules, this is Chess!... Besides, you do not object?' said my oponent turning to me. 'Go ahead, its my pleasure.' And the game went on as if nothing had happened."
