|Jun-22-02|| ||Sneaky: How did Schlechter find a way to sacrifice brilliantly in so many games? |
|Dec-07-03|| ||InspiredByMorphy: My jaw dropped after watching this game! Schlecter played visciously!
I like how he continued to attack the king. |
|Dec-08-03|| ||Calli: Is 16...exf4 17.e5 Rg8 a clear win? |
|Dec-08-03|| ||InspiredByMorphy: 18. exd6+ Kd7 19. Qxh7 Bh3 20. g3 Bxf1 21. Kxf1 Rh8 22. Qxf4 Rxh2 23. Kg1 Qh8 and agreed blacks got it better. Good eye Calli! |
|Dec-08-03|| ||InspiredByMorphy: Even 21.Rxf1 still leaves black with a better game. |
|Dec-08-03|| ||technical draw: Wait a minute. If 16...exf4 17.e5 Rg8 then white wins with 18.Qf6+. |
|Dec-08-03|| ||Calli: <TD> Couldn't find anything decisive after [16...exf4 17.e5 Rg8 18.Qf6+ Ke8 19.Ne4 Qxf6 20.Nxf6+ Kf8 21.Rxd6 Rg6 22.Rfd1 Ke7] |
|Dec-08-03|| ||technical draw: <Calli> Not 19.Ne4, check 19.Rxd6. |
|Dec-08-03|| ||Calli: 19.Rxd6 Qxf6 20.exf6 Rd8 looks okay for Black. |
|Dec-08-03|| ||AgentRgent: Calli what about: 16...exf4 17.e5 Rg8 18.Qf6+ Ke8 19.Ne4 Qxf6 20.Nxf6+ Kf8 and now 21.exd6 Rg6 22. Nh5 f3 23. Nf4 Rf6 24. Nxe6+ |
|Dec-08-03|| ||Calli: 24...Rxe6 and White has a small edge, but it looks drawish to me. |
|Jul-09-04|| ||vonKrolock: this game reminds me of that days (not so remote) in which we had to found all our information about Chess in books, magazines or newapapers - when i searched for games of that period, and the material had not indexes,i had to leaf through thousands of pages, to find a couple of games or a few diagrams whith problems - this specific game i found in the personal library of M. de Haro, whith analisis from an argentinian and a curious remark that the winner, Schlechter was "The Haydn of Chess" - that was somewhat a happy trouvaille: when i see Schlechter games ii always reminds me of some passage from a Haydn work (this game is an exception - i hear "Radetzky-March", from Strauss ... ) |
|Jul-09-04|| ||Gypsy: Schlechter ~ Hayden, most interesting <vonKrolock>. Btw, somewhere in the cobwebs of my memory is that the "Parade March Radetzky" goes with the name Kmoch. Check me on the that. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||vonKrolock: <Gypsy> i think that writer was referring to some combined qualities of alacrity, agility and freshness found in Haydn Sinfonie's Allegros, compared to Schlechter's attacking play - <the "Parade March Radetzky" goes with the name Kmoch. Check me on the that.> interesting, but a quick google search shows nothing - i'm curious... |
|Nov-01-04|| ||Gowe: If 16.exf4 17.e5 Rg8 18.Qf6+ Kf8 19.Ne4 Qxf6 20.Nxf6+ f8 21.Rxd6 and white has a very strong position and also can double the rock and it's an easy winning game. Because white has a very nice knight on f6 without black with the possibility of removing it but only with the rock. |
|Nov-01-04|| ||ForeverYoung: Nice game by the mighty Schlechter! He somehow got a rep for drawing, but this guy played some very nice attacking games! |
|Sep-27-07|| ||RookFile: This thing looks like a class B player getting crushed in a simul.|
|Mar-06-08|| ||Gypsy: <vonKrolock> I was wrong. Must have misinterpretted incorectly something I had heard once. Radetsky march does go with Strauss.|
|Mar-06-08|| ||vonKrolock: <Gypsy> František Kmoch, from Zásmuky-Kolín, the great Czech composer and conductor... Well, he made also a lot of bravurous marches!|
|Jun-20-09|| ||vonKrolock: <i hear "Radetzky-March", from Strauss> Well, there's a recording from 1896 <!!> online... How they heard this even before this game http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jug_...|
|Jun-20-09|| ||Marmot PFL: <RookFile> Steinitz was not well and died about a year later.|
|Jul-07-09|| ||vonKrolock: Two Years later - and in Cologne he was clear fifth with +8 =3 -4, still ahead of eleven players (inclusive Schlechter)
|Jun-24-11|| ||perfidious: The New Jersey player Michael Goeller provides this game, with some interesting notes, here: http://www.kenilworthchessclub.org/...|
|Jun-08-13|| ||Karpova: On page 138 of the 1898 'Wiener Schachzeitung', <14...Bd7> is suggested instead of 14...Bd6|

with 15.Qxg7 Bf6 (planning Qe7 and 0-0-0) or 15.Qxe5 0-0

His opponents made mistakes! Otherwise it would not be possible. For example:
12. ..Be7 is not necessary. The bishop is well located on f6.
< 12. ..Qa5! > is a much more efficient defense.

Now, Qxd6 is not possible since ..Rd8 embarrasses the Q. But either way black plans ..Rd8 .
