|Dec-09-09|| ||harish22: this was simple. however spielmann was an awesome player. his attacks against second-tier opponents were spectacular|
|Dec-09-09|| ||SufferingBruin: 1000 rating, trying to get better.
<<jheiner>: Because I think this is a problem that beginners (like myself) have when playing OTB. We look deep into lines, rather than doing a general survey of the position. Trying to look "deep" before looking "around.">
This. This is why I missed it. I'm not going to say it better than this.
|Dec-09-09|| ||Nullifidian: I was able to see 25. e7+ xe7 26. xh7+ xh7 27. h6+ g8 28. h8#, but I'm still not giving any points to myself because I remember it from Spielmann's chapter on sham sacrifices in "The Art of Sacrifice in Chess".|
|Dec-09-09|| ||rafal.kostecki: Great game by Rudolf Spielmann 3 (!!} brillant moves Nf5, Ne7, Qh7 Alekhine Gambit in the Caro-Cann defense http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...|
|Dec-09-09|| ||remolino: Beautiful game but really weak opposition. Should a brilliant game require respectable opposition? The Immortal was full of mistakes and did not present good opposition. Kasparov - Topalov was a top game on both sides.|
Your call. This was a walk in the park for Spielmann.
|Dec-09-09|| ||MaxxLange: <remolino> I don't want to place that kind of formal consideration on what chess game can be "beautiful"|
Spielmann crushed a weaker player here. He could have won in many ways, but this is the way it happened. It's a beautiful game. And I think, in general, it can be beautiful to watch a strong master crush a weaker player.
Wasn't it Spielmann who complained, "I can play combinations like Alekhine, but I cannot get the positions for them like he does"? That is how I feel looking at this game. Sure, finding Ne7+ with mate in 4 is no big deal if you are about 1600 strength. But, go through the whole game carefully, imagine that you had White. Could you have really made all those moves that led to this flashy win? a3 and b4? Ng4? Nf5!!
|Dec-09-09|| ||turbo231: I love this puzzle,too bad I missed it. It had another pin in it,for some reason I cant see pins.|
|Dec-09-09|| ||lippizan: <<harish22>: this was simple. however spielmann was an awesome player. his attacks against second-tier opponents were spectacular>|
I hope you didn't mean Hoenlinger was a second class player. See his profile.
|Dec-09-09|| ||Milesdei: Missed the puzzle, too caught up in trying to deflect the queen from the defense of e7, rather than seeing what was possible by moving the knight there directly. |
The finish was lovely, regardless of his opponent's strength.
|Dec-10-09|| ||MaxxLange: <I hope you didn't mean Hoenlinger was a second class player. See his profile.>|
excellent, he was a master player in Vienna, not an amateur, but Spielmann carved him up like the Christmas ham in this game.
|Dec-10-09|| ||YouRang: Coming in late... I found a win, although not quickest:|
I want to manufacture a mate threat at g7, which is attacked by my Q and N, and guarded by black's K and Ne8. How can I deflect the knight?
How about opening the e-file with <25.Rxd5!>, which attacks black's Q and opens the diagonal for my bishop to hit g7. <25...exd5> (not 25...Qxd5 26.Ne7#) <26.Re1> attacking the key defensive knight as well as threatening Ne7+, which wins the queen.
I see no way for black to get out of this.
If 26...f6, then 27.Ne7+ Qxe7 (not 27...Kf7 28.Qxh7 Ng7 29.Qxg6#) 28.Rxe7
If 26...Rc7 (guarding e7), then 27.Rxe8 f6 (blocking my DSB and guarding g7) 28.Ne7+
|Dec-10-09|| ||pts92: Thank you very much <MaczynskiPratten> 20.Qd5 really stops all white's playy, wiht a slightly better position for black I would say. i was surprised too that spielman didn't play 20.Qe5, but i kinda expected such a clear refutation.|
|Dec-11-09|| ||chillowack: <BOSTER: six feeling is not enough to value this beauty.>
I would take it a step further and say that *seven* feeling is not even enough to value this beauty.|
|Dec-12-09|| ||tivrfoa: <drfelton: <tivrfoa> It looks to me like 26.Rh5 fails to 26...f5. At least I don't see a good continuation after that.> yeah :/ thank you! =)|
|May-10-13|| ||Phony Benoni: Here is a picture of Honlinger.
Ironically, it was Rudolf Spielmann who was Baldur!
And, in the unlikely case you're seeing this game for the first time, enjoy.
|May-10-13|| ||offramp: After 25.Ne7 black said, "What have you taken?"|
|May-10-13|| ||King Sacrificer: What a game! Thanks to Hoenlinger for playing to the end.|
|May-10-13|| ||Abdel Irada: Last time someone named Baldur made a dash, it ended in tears after Loki found a bit of mistletoe....|
|May-10-13|| ||TheTamale: Wow! One of my favorite GOTDs in a long time. Nice game by the Rowdy Rudy.|
|May-10-13|| ||catlover: <in the unlikely case you're seeing this game for the first time, enjoy>|
You're right. This was a fun game. Also, good joke about about Spielmann being "Baldur".
|May-10-13|| ||Chessdreamer: Apparently this game was not played until checkmate & Black actually resigned after 25.Ne7+. (Spielmann: Richtig opfern)|
|May-10-13|| ||kevin86: Wow! What a zoo of pins and sacrifices!|
|May-10-13|| ||FSR: From the pun, I was expecting to see Spielmann vs M Walter, 1928, another famous Spielmann demolition of a Caro-Kann, which featured a "dash" by Black's king (Ke8-d7-c7-b7-a6-b5-c5).|
|May-12-13|| ||EvanTheTerrible: Great.|
