Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-17-03  cruzian: white missed mate in one at move 31.
Also, see Winter's Chess Omnibus pp 289-292
Aug-18-03  Corben: You mean the loss of the queen,
31. Nf5 Qf8
32. Qg5+ Kh8
33. Qf6+ Kh7
34. Nh6+ and all is over.
Seems Schlecther was a great player.
Aug-18-03  Jonber: <Corben> He was talking about 31.Qh8#
Feb-26-05  aussiedefence: maybe this was a blindfold game because they did play a match that was blindfold. I dont what year it was though
Feb-26-05  Saruman: <aussiedefence> I think you got it. Either a blindfold game or the gamescore is wrong.

  vonKrolock: <aussiedefence, Saruman> No, the present Game was played in the regular Chess Tournament at Leipzig 1894 and the score is correct - Schlechter was the youngest player there in the occasion - nineteen - and this one was his most important victory, as Mieses was already a very experienced Master (today a GM, surely) We discussed whith Benjamin Lau and others kibitzers, some months ago, about the instances when the GMs misses Mate in One - other classical example is Korchnoi vs Mecking, 1974 Pressure of the clock, nerves, tension etc
Dec-27-05  syracrophy: In move 31. I suggest the simple and winning the game's not a hard move to see, is it?
Sep-09-10  bengalcat47: I have Warren Goldman's book Carl Schlechter! Life and Times of the Austrian Chess Wizard. Here too it is pointed that Schlechter missed the immediate 31. Qh8#. Mieses was careless with his move 30...Qe7? and must have breathed a sigh of relief when Schlechter missed the mate. However, it did not take long for Schlechter to win the ending -- no small task, since Queen and Pawn endgames are notoriously difficult.
