Aug-11-03  cruzian: Was this game really played by Carlos Torre?
The online database at has an identical game "Schuster,T-Carls,C, Bremen 1913".
Feb-16-04  Taidanii: Well, an 11 move game wouldn't be hard to duplicate.
Jul-06-06  ChessDude33: Very nice trap, alot of whites moves look natural, even the blunder 7. Bxf6

Oct-21-07  vonKrolock: This game is a perfect clone of another played fifteen years before by Carl Johan Margot Carls (see Karpova's comments and links to E. Winter's "Chess Notes"). The combination is likely to be repeated in other instances to, if the sequence 5...h5 6.♗g5 h4! arrives - thus turning Carls' combination to an opening trap... <10.c3> Here, after the alternative 10.♕d2, black wins immediatelly with 10...gxf2+!! - curiously enough, this visually appealing variation with the same theme was overlooked by some keen analists while commenting this or the earlier game - a proof that in the pre-computer days chess analysis in many instances developed in slow and erratic paths...
