  GrahamClayton: One of the most unusual games in the chessgames database. The White Knight replicates the captures of the Black Knight, while Koshnitsky finishes the game with 16.d4 and 17.e4, two moves usually played to open a game.

  Benzol: The ending of the G Koshnitsky vs A Wolfers, 1948 game also shows stunning play by Koshnitsky. I'm suprised that it hasn't been included in some collection yet.
Nov-04-10  kellmano: Playing 10....Nxh1 seems tantamount to resigning. Surely either Nd3+ to double white's centre pawns would be better.

I would have definitely played 10......0-0. Perhaps it leaves black a clear pawn down, but there is something cool about the move.
