  whiteshark: When playing <10. f4!> white wants to sacrify a piece. He has judged the consequences quite accurately.
As a result of the combination white has a dominating position after <21. Nf3>, although he has only a pawn for the piece.

  shalgo: Stockfish suggests various improvements for Black, such as 16...Kh8, 18...Be6, and 21...Bd7, although none of these appears to be a refutation of Schlechter's idea--they just allow Black to stay in the game.
