|Feb-18-04|| ||WMD: Considering that Jose Sanz Aguado passed away in 1969, only the fact of his reincarnation could explain the later games attributed to him.|
Suprised to see that Sanz's most famous game is not included here. Euwe was of the opinion: "One of the prettiest, perhaps the prettiest endgame I have ever seen."
From Tim Krabbe's website:
ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS and beautiful combinations that ever occurred over the board is the one in the diagram on the left. Petrosyan once said that when he first saw it at age 10, it thrilled him so much that it was a major factor in binding him to chess forever. Hugh Alexander wrote: 'I always have trouble believing that this endgame really occurred in a game, and not during a post-mortem.' And when the great endgame composer Henri Rinck was asked by Tartakower if this could not be turned into something really beautiful, he said that nothing needed to be added, nothing needed to be cut.

|Nov-20-08|| ||brankat: Even if Senor Aguado had never ever played another game in his life, this one would still have made him immortal in the annals of Chess History:|
M Ortueta vs J Sanz, 1933
R.I.P. Master Aguado.
|Nov-24-13|| ||FSR: He must have been a fairly strong player - he had draws against Alekhine and Keres. But I daresay that he would hardly be remembered today but for his immortal combination in M Ortueta vs J Sanz, 1933. Just staggering - hard to believe that such an amazing combination was actually played. Truly the combination of a lifetime.|
