Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-01-08  paladin at large: Is this Zugzwang, or has Schlechter lost on time?
Feb-01-08  nescio: Schlechter resigned. "67.Be6 f3 (or even first 67..Bd4) 68.Ke3 e4 69.Kxe4 f2 70.Bh3 c4 71.Ke3 c3 72.Kd3 Kc5 and the Black King switches to the K side with fatal effect"--Tartakower.

""You have invented a most vital and aggressive new system." Schlechter said to me then. I replied:"I let my forces wander about at their own sweet will""--Tartakower

  Shams: vital and aggressive perhaps, but helped out considerably by 6.d5?!

I would have unbalanced things with 5.fxe3, but then that's me: Shams, the self-tenderizing iguana.

  Shams: <nescio> nice find! still, Appel could have played some better moves. :)
Feb-01-08  nescio: <still, Appel could have played some better moves. :)> After 70 years, one should be able to find an improvement or two.:)

The system with ...Bg4 isn't the most reliable theoretically, I think, but Petrosian also used to play similar set-ups sucessfully.
