|Aug-29-02|| ||refutor: apparently this game was from the international tournament Schiavno Zdroj...i can't imagine a player who plays the caro-kann on the international level not being aware of this trap...bad nerves maybe? |

|Dec-02-05|| ||Chopin: What a horrible blunder- 5. Nbd7|
|Jun-26-06|| ||McCool: I should add that Keres got up from the table after playing his fifth move and was standing behind his opponent's back when he saw him make the suicidal reply. Thereupon his arm reached out over the Polish master's shoulder and carried out the move with the knight. Perfect gentleman that he was, the Grandmaster couldn't help speaking the word that was by no means obligatory: "Mate!"|

|Aug-20-08|| ||micahtuhy: My post and the post above should reference The Batsford Book of Chess Records by Yakov Damsky.|
I learned this trap before that though, my mentor used it in a U.S. Open. Anyone who plays Caro-Kann should be familiar with this trap. When my mentor succeeded with it, his opponent was a 1500 player who wasn't familiar with Car0-Kann and though he should play something different...not the best idea.
|Apr-18-09|| ||Phony Benoni: I believe it was Martin Beheim, in his book "Chess with the Masters", who recorded the sequel to this game.|
Keres, presented with an unexpected day off, spent it playing tennis under a blazing sun. The next day, he was so badly sunburned that he lost horribly.
If the dates given in the PGN are correct, that would have been this game: Keres vs A Pytlakowski, 1950

As well as the Alekhine v Mohner game, Damsky also mentions the following duplications:
Vogt-Lehmann, Weidenau 1947
Kosterin-Lanzias, Havana 1966
Guzden-Krysztanowski, Elbat 1973
Nizimura-Marco, Lucerne 1982
Is this 6-mover the most duplicated miniature of all time?

|Dec-06-10|| ||kevins55555: A fine example of a smothered mate with a pin. ♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘|
|May-08-11|| ||Mozart72: After 5. Qe2 Nxe4 or 5. ... Bf5 could have prolonged the game a bit.|
|May-08-11|| ||Mozart72: 5. ... Nxe4 is a nicer move. It makes both Queens meet. |
6. Qxe4 Qd5
7. Qxd5 cxd5
|May-08-11|| ||Mozart72: Is this chess analysis, or what!|
|May-08-11|| ||Mozart72: 5. ... Bf5 makes the game a bit slow-paced.
6. d3 Na6
7. Bd2 e6
8. 0-0-0 Nc5
|Jun-03-14|| ||vinodchess: This is a nice short game with knights.
|Jul-10-14|| ||Ratt Boy: Why not have White to Move, at Move 6, as an unusual Monday puzzle?|
|Jul-22-14|| ||Xeroxx: A number of people has fallen for this trap.|
|Oct-27-14|| ||Whitehat1963: Paul Keres about winning, not your feelings.|
