  chancho: David Le Moir mentions in his book: How To Become A Deadly Chess Tactician, that there is a mundane win in 30...Rf6+ 31.Kh7 h5 followed by Rh6#.
Sep-27-07  syracrophy: Unforgivable! A single piece giving mate with all the white army!

  GrahamClayton: Alexander Alekhine devoted a whole article in the "Deutsche SchachZeitung" to this game, under the title "A Gem of Combinative Art".

31...Rf5!!! is a brilliant move - White cannot cover both the f4 and g5 squares at the same time.

  sneaky pete: The Aljechin article "Eine Perle der Kombinationskunst" was published in "Denken und Raten", Sonderabteilung "Das Deutsche Schach", and with permission reprinted in "Kagan's Neueste Schachnachrichten" November/December 1930.

The game score given here is wrong, black played 22... Qh5 23.Rg1 Qxh2+ etc, so the improvement 23.Nf3 .. was never an option. I'm sure I used the <suggest your correction> link to report this mistake ages ago.

  thebribri8: I am a very conservative linguist, as you can see from my avatar. It pains me enough to read your kibitzes with you nonsensical punctuation, but I can see no justification for using the word "fer" when "for" is just as easy to type.

Feb-18-10  Dravus: I.A. Horowitz's Golden Treasury of Chess (Wellmuth) gives the finale as: 29 ... Kg8!
30 Nxh2 h6+
31 Kg6 Rf5!
32 exf5 Nf4 mate

But what if White went 31 Kh5? Would this save him?

Feb-19-10  Dravus: Horowitz's version uses different numbering of the moves, also. A slightly altered dynamic occurs in the same setting as given here at CG.
Nov-12-10  sevenseaman: Configuration of the forces is all important. If one counted, Black is heavily outnumbered in pawns and pieces; but his men are placed so tellingly.

  Phony Benoni: This game was published in the American Chess Bulletin, November 1930, p.165. The good news is that it is definitely a real game. It was played in the Hauptturnier (Minor Tournament) at Frankfurt (1930).

The bad news is that the ACB says White resigned after 31...Rf5. Spoilsport.

Aug-12-13  phil6875: <sneaky pete> The improvement would be 22. Nf3.

After 23. Rg1 it's mate in 8 moves. The same as the game up to 27. Kg5 then,

27...Rff6 28. Qxf8+ Kxf8 29. Kg4 Rfg6+ 30. Kf3 Nxg1#, Mate.
