|Nov-03-03|| ||ughaibu: One of Stein's sudden tactical strikes. |
|Nov-03-03|| ||aragorn69: Sure is, ugha (12.Kxf2? Bxc3). But it is, above all, a huge Ljubo blunder : 10.Rd1?? After 10.0-0 or 10.Qd2, the game can go on. |
|Apr-05-05|| ||Benzol: Was this a case of the trapper trapping himself.
10.♖d1 tempts 10...♘fe4.
White would then follow with 11.♕xg7+ ♔xg7 12.♘xe4+ f6 13.♘xc5 with three minor pieces for the Queen.
Stein's 10...♘g4 must have come as a lightening bolt.

Wow, what a tactical shot by Stein, 10 ... ♘e5-g4! followed by 11 ... ♘g4xf2!.
|Jun-13-09|| ||Ed Trice: Probably one of the stranger positions where white castled.|
|Jun-13-09|| ||Hugh the Drover: This game ties the record, at White's 12th, for castling closest to the enemy (tying Reti-Wolf, Teplitz-Schonau, 1922, White's 17th).|
|Jun-14-09|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Here's another example of castling with the enemy at the gates; in this case, the Knight actually stimulates Black's blistering breakthrough!|
Spassky vs Suetin, 1964
|Jan-13-10|| ||ajk68: I'm confused by white's last move.
Was this a touch rule?
|Jul-15-10|| ||ycbaywtb: hoping for R x and Q captures Black's other R, also nice threat of N forking K and Q earlier, neat game...|
|Nov-01-10|| ||onur87: did stein see 11.Nxf2 beginnig from the 8.Nbd7? Waow! Is this true? As an amateur, i impressed.|
|Dec-20-13|| ||perfidious: Don't recall ever seeing a game till now where one player castled with both rooks under attack.|
|Jan-08-16|| ||capafischer1: brilliant tactics by Stein. Great move by move book on Stein is just out by everyman chess.|
