  whiteshark: <50...Kd4??> was the losing move. Black missed probably the strength of the only winning move <51.Nd6! >

  Phony Benoni: The Maneuver appears to have worked. Black's king certainly didn't perish from lack of air.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Wait--White *won* this?! He looked thoroughly busted after 10...Qf6, lost a pawn with (superficially) little compensation after 16...Bb4, and 25.Bf7 looks like pure desperation. Did he in fact have a won game the whole time?

  ChessHigherCat: <An Englishman> Black was Kapitšn Blitzkrieg in the opening and it looked like he had white on the ropes. I agree the bishop sac seemed like an unplanned desperado move. I'm glad white somehow managed to turn everything around, though, because it shows there's always hope for the underdog.

Considering how white resuscitated himself Heinrich Maneuver is a good pun.

  eternaloptimist: <An Englishman> Indeed 25.♗f7?? was sheer desperation! Rolletschek should have lost this game b/c of that blunder. Although as <CHC> pointed out Rolletschek was resuscitated. This was b/c GM Kindermann played inaccurately & Rolletschek was able to turn the game around & win it. This is a very entertaining game & the pun is great also!!
Jan-31-19  pmukerji: Why not 23...Nxe4?...seems like a powerful move leading to problems for white...but i could be missing something obvious like I often do...
