Nov-19-05  Central Control: Nice Bishop and Queen Sac, culminating in mate in the middle of the board!
Apr-19-08  gibbonsm: An awesome demonstration of the Blackmar (Staunton Gambit). Black's 8)...b6? is the beginning of the end. Instead of the Queenside Fianchetto, Black should have played Qe1 or equivalent defensive measures. Needless to say White's Queen sacrifice is quite beautiful.

I enjoy studying these games and thinking about what was happening in the Global Geo-Political perspective of that epoch. When this game was played "Black Jack" Pershing was chasing Pancho Villa south of the border. Manfred von Richthofen scored the first of his legendary 80 kills.

This game and many others like it are a piece of History :-)

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: This game was featured (without the players' names) in a book of opening traps by Luis Argentino Palau written in the 1940's. My father bought the book when he was a teenager in Buenos Aires. During the Fischer boom of the early 1970's, he passed the book on to me. Thank you, ChessGames, for finally allowing me to find out the names behind the moves.

In one of my early postal games I tried this variation as White, only to have my opponent trip me up by playing 10...Rxf6 instead of 10...Bxf6. I think I won anyway, but only with further mistakes by black.

Preinhalter might also have avoided troubles by playing 13...Qe1 instead of 13...Re1.

Feb-22-14  cowscowscows: Thanks for your story <Gregor Samsa Mendel> - I'd be fascinated to hear the title of that book.

You might be interested to know that Black is no better after Rxf6, following the simple exchange of rooks:

10. ... Rxf6
11. Rxf6 Bxf6
12. Qh5! g6

(Qh5 being the thematic move; 12. ... Bxe5 loses to Bxh7+; 12. ... h6 loses to Qf7+)

13. Bxg6 Kf8 (seems to be the most stubborn)
14. Qh6+ Ke7
15. Qxh7+ Kd6 which transposes to the game checkmate.

A very instructive attacking game!

  MissScarlett: Found this game in a 1922 English newspaper with the same details, <Prague, 1916>, but the names have initials <F. Goldschmeid & O. Preinhälter>. Note spelling of -schmeid vs. -schmied.
