  Whitehat1963: An absolutely gorgeous game from the Player of the Day. The queen sac on move 14 is absolutely deadly! Ten checks in 13 moves later we get an excellent checkmate. I'm really surprised no one has commented on this beauty before!

  SneechLatke: Player of the day (again) puts the Evans to good use. Now this is chess!

  madlydeeply: My question is did Schiffers see all the variations after 12 e5? Or did they do homework in those bygone days?

Lovely game
