Apr-03-06  AlexanderMorphy: gem of a game from diemer!
Apr-24-12  MarkFinan: This is a tactical masterpiece!
If this was a Fischer, or even a Tal game it would be held up as one of the best miniatures of their careers, I can't believe there's only one comment here! The finish is sublime.. 19..Qxg5 would have given black some hope maybe, and possibly held on for longer, but who cares about losing when you lose like this.. If i could just play one game like this I'd be more than happy.. You don't see games like this anymore..... Well I don't anyway!
Apr-24-12  john2629: There are many Diemer brilliances.This one is certainly not!! 19.Rf7 was just a bluff. black should play 19...Rxf7 and after that there are exchanges and with best play the game should be a dead draw. for example:19...Rxf7 20 Qxh6 Bxh6 21 Nxf7+ Kg7 22 Nxd8 these are best moves and black is a bit better cause of bishop pair.
Apr-24-12  MarkFinan: <john2629> I've never even heard of Diemer before I played through this game, so if he's played more exciting, attacking chess than this, then I think I need to take a look through more of his games..

BTW if 2629 is your rating, then that makes you some player :)

Apr-25-14  senojes: The position after Black's 19...Qxd6 was the chess column problem in my today's Friday (25 Apr 14) newspaper.

In view of the comments above about the game being comparable to a Fischer or a Tal game, I played it through on Houdini 4, expecting a tactical masterpiece.

But Houdini rated Black as winning almost the entire game and according to Houdini Diemer missed many best moves.

And if it wasn't for Black's blunder 19 ... Qxd6 when 19... Rxf7 was still better for Black, Diemer shouldn't have won.

Certainly Fischer or Tal, or just about any grandmaster, would have wiped the floor with Diemer in this game!

Jul-27-15  thecurse: after 19...Rxf7 20 Qxh6 Bxh6 21 Nxf7+ Kg7 22 Nxd8 white has a passed center pawn and his rook is free blacks rook is in the corner he needs to move a bishop to free it but if he moves it he loses a pawn so the bishop and rook are stuck if the other bishop attacks the knight the knight can force an exchange of a knight for a bishop with Ne6 so much for your bishop pair being superior theory
Nov-19-16  Kettalchess: Diemer was banned form chess life magazines because a jew control all of them and he was a NAZI. So it shame even if a serial killer was a genius in chess he has a place in chess life even with a mention that he was a serial killer.
