  Chessical: A spirited attacking game, but Leonhardt makes Spielmann's K-side attack and B sacrifice more potent than necessary with <15.Ned2?>. Instead <15.Qd3> prevents complete K-side disintegration.

  InspiredByMorphy: Whites problem after 11.hxg4 is obvious. Underdeveloped, accepting the sacrifice (at least on this move) doesent seem wise. After 11.Be3 I thought 12.hxg4 may now be a threat due to whites increased protection of the f2 square. However, after 11.Be3 Rhe8 12.hxg4 Nxg4 13.Qd2 black still has enough power to crumble whites kingside after 13. ...Nxe3 . It seems white isnt close to being able to accept that sacrifice. What should white play on move 11 ?

  InspiredByMorphy: Ive got it 11.Bg5 Bxf3 12.Bxf6 Bxe2 13.Qxe2 Qxe2 14.Nxe2 gxf6 leaves black with doubled pawns.
May-15-11  uscfratingmybyear: I bet Susan Polgar logged some time on Spielmann's games. I see the same admirable combinative brutality in them both.
Nov-11-15  quirite: I guess you mean Judit Polgar. I said to me the same thing that you.
