  IMlday: 3..g5 sure looks like a typo to me.
Try 3..g6 a la Pillsbury, Smyslov etc?

  vonKrolock: <IMlday> according to Teichmann, this move 3...g5 was analised and recomended by Prof. Brentano; Schlechter used this sporadiclly and published some analisis in D. Schachzeitung in 1900; Teichmann conclude his comment whith "diese Spielweise ist nicht zu empfehlen, da die Schwächung der Bauern auf dem Königsflügel sich früher oder später rächen muss" (nota: not in this game, Herr Teichmann..) This Schlechter's facet of experimentalist in Chess openings is lesser known...

  IMlday: This game is absurd! Why doesn't White play 7.Qxf6 Nxf6 8.e5 and presumably to avoid just being down a pawn Black will go 8..Ng4 9.Bxg5 Bc5 10.Bh4 Bd4 11.c3 Bxe5 when simply 12.Nd2 gives a beautiful endgame with both the 'Morphy' edge of development lead and the 'Capablanca' edge of fewer pawn islands. Amazing though that a famous 'cementhead' like Schlecter would entertain such a bizarrity as 3..g5. Strange!

  IMlday: If Black wants to 'live on the edge'
he can always try the Latvian Counter-Gambit, (eg;):Romanishin vs H Van Riemsdijk, 1979

  vonKrolock: <IMlday> Schlechter introduced a considerable number of serious novelties in opening theory, thus so a féerique divertissement is to be atributed to his sense of humour; but i'll not expect to see him using this Brentano's idea in a major IT, p. ex. (this match vs Teichmann was a quick four games friendly) apparently Teichmann was surprised, himself pointed out later a line identical to Yours till 9.Bxg5, following 9...Bg7 10.f4 h6 11.Bh4 Ne3 12.Kd2 Nxg2 13.Bg3 h5 14.Bf1 h4 15.Bxg2 hxg3 16.hxg3 Rxh1 17.Bxh1 d6 18.Sa3 dxe5 19.Re1 f6 20.fe fe 21.Nc4 "und Weiss behält einen Bauern mehr" (just a centenary pre-cybernetic line for Chess gourmets...)
Feb-13-17  Swedish Logician: Brentano's analyses can be found in three articles published in Wiener Schachzeitung 1900, 1901, and 1903. The first is alvailable on-line at and the other two are redily found from there. (Use the "–> Textl. Inhaltsv." function !)
