Apr-27-08  sambo: Nifty endgame by Schubert. Happy 114th, buddy!

  profK: I think white has to give the pawn back with 22.g3. The black knight has to be is very powerful as Reti finds out.
Apr-27-11  KokeFischer: Black's attack was very unexpected. It was done efficiently.
Apr-27-11  Nietzowitsch: Kind of a model game, no?
Jan-18-18  saturn2: The Schubert Retiem
Jan-18-18  Ratt Boy: How 'bout 24.♘e5, ♖ah8 25.f3, ♖h1+ 26.♔f2, ♖1h2+ 27.♔g3 ? Does that hold? Black can make scary mate threats with 27...♘e6, but I like 28.♘xg6!, holding the h4 square.
Jan-18-18  Cheapo by the Dozen: Best pun we've had in a long time. It actually describes an important aspect of the game!
Jan-18-18  nalinw: Yes - this pun must be in the top 10 of the ones I have seen.

  ChessHigherCat: Or <Death and the Matin'>
Jan-18-18  RookFile: 22. h4 would have been a neat little move, sealing the win for white, and denying black counterplay.
Jan-18-18  ughaibu: RookFile: I guess black would try 22...g5

  Grandma Sturleigh: Great pun!

Though here it's Reti rather than Schubert who had unfinished business.

  ajile: Dunno, looks kinda like a London System to me. Kamsky would approve!

  GrahamClayton: 22...♗xh3 is a nice double purpose move - it rips open the White K-side, but also gets the bishop out of the way for the doubling of the rooks on the h-file.
