  Honza Cervenka: When white played 12.f4 with idea to prevent e7-e5 he had to be quite in shock after Spielmann's 12...e5!?? followed by sac of piece. It is hard to believe that the sac can be sound but the defence against fierce attack on the King in the centre was too difficult for white. Instead of 24...Re4 Spielmann could have sealed the fate of game immediately by 24...Rxe2! 25.Kxe2 (25.Rxe2 Bc4) 25...Bxf2 26.Qxf2 Bc4+ etc. but white did not escape his doom missing his last chance for viable defence 25.Rc1!? Very Spielmannish game!
