  WannaBe: Interesting, my book, move 31 for both side were not included.
Jul-17-07  Dr. Siggy: In spite of the huge sucess obtained with it by such players as Alekhine and Short, the Worrall Attack of the Ruy Lopez remains under a cloud. Against it, "Lady Theory" still recommends the Schlechter Counter-Attack as the most effective weapon at Black's disposal, usually presenting this particular game as an illustration of such an argument. I must confess I can't say I'm fully convinced by "Lady Theory" about this...

As a matter of fact, after 8... d5(?!), I'm not even sure why shouldn't White accept Black's pawn sacrifice! If White dares to play 9. dxc6(!), I can't see any kind of compensation for Black both after 9... Nxd5 10. Nxe5 Nf4 11. Qe4 Nxe5 12. d4! Bb7! 13. Qxf4! (pointed out by Pachmann many years ago) Nd3 14. Qf5!, and 9... Bg4 10. dxc6 e4 11. d4! exf3 12. gxf3 Bh5! 13. Bf4! Re8 (as played by Keres in this game) 14. Qd3! Bd6 15. Bg3!. Any comments?...
