Apr-08-05  Whitehat1963: An excellent game among two of the most exciting players of the early part of the century. I'm surprised no one has kibitzed on it yet.
Apr-08-05  paladin at large: Thanks <Whitehat1963>, beautiful infiltration by Spielmann. White's 9. f4 and 24. bf2 look awfully bad in retrospect.
Sep-21-06  percyblakeney: Very nice game by Spielmann, beating Rubinstein with black in his best year (as in Rubinstein vs Spielmann, 1912). In this tournament Rubinstein went +12 -0 =4 in his other games, Spielmann finished second:

Jan-27-13  schnarre: ...Once Black got it 25...Bg2 it seemed all over but the crying. Nice play by Black!
