  Honza Cervenka: Lovely finish!
May-27-04  MoonlitKnight: Tisdall is an American who has lived in Norway since 1985. 1981 was the year he became IM, and he later became GM (in 1993). Here is his picture: http://heim.ifi.uio.no/~runed/grafi...

  acirce: <panigma> It leads to mate after 16. exd7+, 17. Rhe1+ and eventually Rd8#
May-27-04  panigma: <acirce> Thanks. I was thinking black could weasel out of it using the bishop as protection from the rooks, but missed Rd8.
Feb-23-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 15.e6!! counts for one of weirder moves i've seen so far!

  OBIT: Yeh, the position after Black's 14th move really needs to be a Puzzle of the Day someday.
May-08-09  tommy boy: 15.e6!!! Absolutely insane

Then 16.exf7+ followed by 17.Rhe1+ looks destructive. White has too many pieces aiming at e7.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <PB>--Thanks. It somehow never occurred to me that the white e-pawn could capture on f7 as well as d7.
Feb-26-12  JohnBoy: yeah - white to move at 15 is a solid Saturday puzzle.
Mar-14-12  Interbond: Tisdall has commented this game in a norwegian chessmagazine . If we should believe his comments he actually played 11. Bg5! Qb6 12.Bd3?! Nf5? ....... and the game ended 18.Rd8+ Kxd8 19.Qxf8+ 1-0
Apr-19-14  BxChess: <Gregor Samsa Mendel>, <Phony Benoni> I'm also puzzled by the defence 15...Nc6.
If 16. exd7+ Bxd7 17. Rhe1+ Be6
and if 18. Rxe6 Qxe6 then Black stands better as far as pieces go at least. If White doesn't exchange the Rook for the Bishop on 18 Rxe6, then I don't see how White can continue the attack and Black is a Knight up
