  Chessical: Perlis demolition of Salwe's K-side is instructive. <16... h6?> completely overlooks the possibility of <17.Nh7!> opening the way for the B sacrifice at <h6>. If 18...gxh6 then simply 19.Nf6!

<20.f7!> is an elegant completion of the sacrificial attack, clearing the f file, and providing a staging post on <f6> for the R.

Jun-15-05  suenteus po 147: Am I correct in my understanding that if 11.Qxc3 then the queen becomes irrevocably trapped on the queenside after 11...Bb4?

Strangelly enough, the usually carefull G. Marco, commenting on this Game, let pass the next move without remark:

<16...h6>? Of course that 16...g6! was, not only better than this, but also the only move, after which Black's position would be perfectly defensible

Jul-15-12  Karpova: Dr. Perlis recommends 8...f6 instead of 8...Be6.

'(Neue) Wiener Schachzeitung', June 1906, page 310

Mar-07-15  goodevans: Wouldn't <16...g6> have created rather a nasty hole at f6? Maybe white can play <17.Bd5>, e.g. 17...Bxd5 18.cxd5 Qxd5 19.Bf4 followed by 20.Ne4.

Not saying that 16...g6 isn't better, just that the position isn't "perfectly defensible".

  morfishine: One thing I really enjoy about <CG> is learning about players. I never knew just how strong Perlis Julius Perlis was; His competitive scalps include Spielmann, Tartakower, Reti, Marshall & Alekhine of all people! But these aren't flukes. For example, in 5 games vs Marshall, Perlis had 3 wins & 2 draws!

Sadly, his life ended tragically in 1913 at the age of 33:

"It is with shock and profound sadness that we relay the doleful news of the death of Dr. Julius Perlis, Chess Master, Doctor of Laws, and avid mountaineer, who perished last week under tragic circumstances in the Styrian Alps. Reports that have reached us indicate that on the morning of 10 September Dr. Perlis commenced a day's excursion on the Hochtor, traversing the mountain - as was his wont and delight - without companion or guide. He seems to have lost his way, for as evening fell his cries for help were heard by two other tourists, who sadly proved unable to reach the stranded climber owing to the encroaching darkness and the onset of a snowstorm. Dr. Perlis' body was at last found, as we understand it, by a rescue team two days later, on 12 September, the absence of visible injuries leading to a verdict of death by exposure."

  kevin86: The attack wins the queen and the game.
Mar-07-15  JohnBoy: Good comment <morf>. I knew of Perlis, but this site and you participants routinely bring me to great games I would not otherwise see. My appreciation for the classical style grows with my review of games like this.
