  jaime gallegos: Schliemman defense 3... f5 is not bad, but this game show a great miniature against some of the few chessplayers who had better results against B. Fischer !

Mar-23-10  YoungEd: Maybe it was already too late for Black, but would 11. ...exf3 e.p. have been any better? Once White gets in f5, Black is cooked.

Here is the only game in the database that features 11...exf3: Gipslis vs Tringov, 1958

White has the 2 bishops and an extra pawn, which proved decisive.
