|Dec-02-08|| ||sergeidave: Wow!! Niiiice game!|
|Aug-17-09|| ||tayer: Later Torre believed that he had found a salvation for white: 10 Qd2 Qxe5 11 dxe5 gxh2 12 O-O-O! (with decisive attack). But black can play: 11 ... gxf2+! 12 Ke2 Qxd2 13 Kxd2 fxg1:Q|
|Aug-02-12|| ||lost in space: Nice trap. Never seen before!|
|Aug-03-12|| ||prn: I don't understand tayer's comment. So what if Black plays 11...gxf2+ ? White doesn't have to just roll over play dead. 12.Qxf2 seems fine to me. (Obviously, I'm not a GM.) For that matter, 12.Kxf2 seems possible too, even though it give up on castling. After simply taking the pawn on f2, white effectively has Q&R for a minor piece with no clear compensation for Black, whose remaining pieces are all still sitting on their original squares.|
|Aug-03-12|| ||whiteshark: <prn> you should read it as <10 ... gxf2+! 11 Ke2 Qxd2 12 Kxd2 fxg1:Q> than it fits. ;)

|Aug-04-12|| ||prn: OH! I see now. Yes, 10...gxf2 makes a lot more sense than 11...gxf2.|
|Sep-07-12|| ||rapidcitychess: Push those rook pawns kids!|
|Sep-07-12|| ||andrewjsacks: Well done. Well done.|
|Sep-07-12|| ||MikeB20: Lovely :)|
|Sep-07-12|| ||Infohunter: I've never seen this game before, but the winning idea is somewhat reminiscent of Schlechter vs J Perlis, 1911, colors reversed.|
|Sep-07-12|| ||newzild: A cute win. The decisive mistake was 7. Bxf6. White should have played N3e2, with only an edge for Black.|

It's ironic, but this is the game I remember from many years ago, not the one you cite-only recently on CG have I seen Schlechter-Perlis.
|Sep-07-12|| ||hugogomes: prn?? After 11... gxf2+, 12.Kxf2 Qxd2 loses the queen. 12. Ke2 is the line he gave, Qxd2, Kxd2, and fxg1=Q. The line you suggest, Qxf2 is impossible because the queen is pinned.|
|Sep-07-12|| ||kevin86: I've seen this one from a long time ago. Black sacrifices queen to gain a new one with interest.|
|Sep-07-12|| ||playground player: What in the world was White trying to do here?|
|Sep-07-12|| ||scormus: 9 ... Qa5+
|Apr-17-17|| ||MissScarlett: In light of Schuster's Christian name remaining unknown, I propose <Bernd Schuster>.|
