Dec-25-08  Stolberg: 23.g4 is a mistake, 23.De5! wins, as Stahlberg found out after the game.
Dec-25-08  AuN1: nice 'd'
Jul-25-12  bystander: As <KingG> pointed out, there is a striking similarity between this game and Botvinnik vs Vidmar, 1936. If Stahlberg would have won this game, it would be in many chessbooks instead of Botwinnik-Vidmar <KingG, Jan-21-10>
Sep-22-12  bystander: 13) ♗b3 makes 13)..♕a6 possible. Although the queen looks a little bit displaced she makes it more difficult for white to castle. E.g. 13) ♗b3 ♕a6 14) ♘e5 ♖d8 15) ♖d3 ♘bd5 16) ♕d2 ♕h5.

If white plays 13 ♗d3 instead than 13) ♗d3 ♗d7 14) 0-0 ♖ac8 15)♕e2 ♖fd8and I think it is more or less equal.

Sep-22-12  bystander: 16)..♘fd5x looks better to me. 16)..♘fd5x 17) ♗e7x ♗e7x 18) ♕e4 ♘bd5 19) ♗c2 g6 20) ♗b3 (to prevent ♕a2x) ♖ac8).
Sep-22-12  bystander: 18)..g6 19) g4 ♕b6 20) f5 ef5x 21) gf5x g5 22) ♗g3 and black can still fight. The advantage of white looks smaller, compared to 18)..♘e8.
