Aug-11-03  cruzian: Was this game really played by Carlos Torre?
The online database at www.chesslab.com 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-31-06  GaryK51188: Nice little jewel.
Oct-31-06  syracrophy: 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 dxe4 4. Nxe4 Nf6 5. Ng3 h5 6. Bg5 <Better was 6.Bc4 h4 7.N3e2, or as well, 6.h4 to block th enemy pawn>6...h4 7. Bxf6?? <Loses a piece by force. Correct was 7.N3e2>7...hxg3! 8. Be5 <White trusted on this move, but he'll receive a huge surprise...> 8...Rxh2! 9. Rxh2 Qa5+ 10. c3 Qxe5+!! 11. dxe5 gxh2 <White resigns as the pawn will promote, with a huge advantage for black> 0-1
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.Bg5 h4! arrives - thus turning Carls' combination to an opening trap... <10.c3> Here, after the alternative 10.Qd2, 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...
