Jan-17-10  SamAtoms1980: Lion Variation? "Lion's Claw"? I had never heard of these openings, probably for good reason. I don't know why a player with the reputation of Samisch would play this monstrosity and get mauled into Meow Mix.
Jul-14-12  backrank: I guess, in 1947 Unzicker was already stronger than Saemisch. For this game, he was awarded a brilliancy prize. The finish (21. Rxd7! 22. Be3! 23. Rxf7+) is a series of hammer blows indeed.
