Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-17-04  nasmichael: OUCH!
He ignores a rook drop again here. He uses initiative well and keeps the heat where it should be, on the king.
Feb-18-04  Stavrogin: Yes, Spielmann is a whirlwind! Initative is everything in his play, in his mind. If he loses, it was his own doing, if he wins, it was his own doing.

  patzer2: This game is number 4876 in Laszlo Polgar's Book "5334 Problems, Combinations and Games." The move 16. Nxg7! is the solution to a combination, which is classified under the theme sacrifice on g2/g7.

I am including it in my "Demolition of Pawns," via sacrifice on g2 or g7 game collection.

If Black plays 16...Kxg7, then White wins after 17. Bh6+ Kg8 18. Qf6

Nov-25-04  aw1988: patzer2, I don't mean to offend in any way, but the way you constantly say "This game is number blah in so-and-so's book" or "this combination is found in the 900th edition of informant"... do you search for all of the games and combinations in your books and then kib about them here just to see if chessgames has it or something?

I have a fair library myself, incidentally.

Nov-25-04  aw1988: I'm sorry, ignore that, obviously you're not proving chessgames has it. I mean, how much chess stuff do you have?

  Chessical: Tartakower could not take the N:

<16...Kxg7> 17.Nf5+ Kg8 18.Qg5+ Ng6 19.Qxf6 Bxe3+ 20.fxe3 and wins.

Feb-24-06  fred lennox: 10....Nd5, clearly a mistake, wasting a vital tempo.
Aug-18-07  syracrophy: 22.♘e7+!! Just the same theme as in W Arencibia vs Jobava, 2005
Apr-13-17  zanzibar: DSZ v64 N9 (Sept 1909) p268 G7976
