  Calli: Bernie vs Burnie! Bernstein tries to sac a pawn with 15.e5 in order to get out of a uncomfortable position. His idea is that 17...Nxf4 18.Bxf4 gives him initiative for the pawn. Burn shows the flaw in the sac with 17...Ng4+! and wins very fine game. Game should have gotten some kind of prize.

Dr. Emanuel Lasker: <With excellent judgement of position, Black perceives that it is of paramount importance to remove the only pawn that is left on White's kingside; and that his pieces are well enough mobilized to continue the attack afterwards with effect.>

From the St. Petersburg 1909 tournament book, translated by Richard Teichmann.
