Mar-16-04  youngplayer11: A Powerful King hunt,Typical of Spielmann.He Always finds a way to attack.
Mar-16-04  TrueFiendish: I don't think the Nh4 and Ng2 idea was much good, and black makes him pay.
Mar-16-04  fatbaldguy: 8 Ng2 may still be playable, but 12 N:h4 simply begs for the exchange sacrifice. Perhaps with 10 Nf4 followed by 11 Bg2 (to protect the rook) white might hold the fort. Or better yet, don't play 1 f4 if you don't know how to play the From gambit...
Oct-19-06  jegbjerg: Beautiful attacking play from Spielmann.
May-08-07  sambo: It seems to me that Shenkein lost this game on move one.

Jul-20-16  zanzibar: Spielmann gets a leg up on Schenkein here.

Was this from one of the Trebitsch tournaments? And if so, which one?

  GrahamClayton: According to Eric Schiller in his book "How to Play the From Gambit", 8. e3 is the key error. He recommends 8. c3, which supports the d4-square as well as opening up some escape squares for the White King if he needs to flee to the queenside.
