Mar-12-04  madlydeeply: Apparently there is no reason to think about the king, Spielmann does not move it until move 36. Keeps it on an open file pinned behind a bishop.
Apr-09-04  Thunderbunny350: Good Lord! If such play is actually sound I am both deeply impressed and convinced that I will have to give up chess because I will never be capable of comprehending it.

  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Poor Drezga--he thinks that he has knocked the great sacrificer back on his heels with the Knight sac when Spielmann (behind in development!) tosses the Rook at his impertinent challenger and takes the initiative.

Two notable moments occur when Spielmann pauses in his attack to take care of other business. 28...Rf5 is a defensive move to keep the Queen from invading c8. Then he doesn't leap to the immediate a3-a2, but waits a few moves to tend to other chores. Pretty impressive play.
