  zanzibar: According to <MillBase> this is the debut of the Winawer Poisoned Pawn (7.Qg4 ... 8.Qxg7).

(See also Lilienthal vs Levenfish, 1936 (kibitz #1) for another early example)

Sep-08-16  AlicesKnight: 18.h4 is a neat resource, not only giving the B additional support but removing the threatened perpetual check. An interesting 'first' if so.

  kevin86: It looked like the perpetual was in the offing, but white denied black that crucial black square to place the queen.

  thegoodanarchist: Black seemed OK and somehow things went horribly wrong in just a few moves.
