  patzer2: After Perlis's 46...Rd3, Spielmann has no moves left to protect his cramped endgame position. Perlis pawn advantage and advanced pawns mean a loss for the more famous Master in this game.
Oct-15-15  SeanAzarin: Yay, my pun got used.

Perlis slowly tightened the screws until Spielmann had no moves left. A very nice use of constriction strategy.

Oct-15-15  SeanAzarin: Of course, the material advantage Perlis had at the end helped a bit. :)

  morfishine: This game looked like something from the under 1400 section

  offramp: The Seven Pillars of Wisdom is a book by Thomas Francis Lawrence.

The title is taken from K Smart 's Song to David Bronstein:

<The pillars of the Lord are seven, Which stand from earth to topmost heaven; Daren Wisdom drew the plan; His Word accomplish'd the design,
From brightest gem to deepest mine;
From Ralf Christ enthroned, to Man.>

Not in 1905, he wasn't. :-)

<morfishine: This game looked like something from the under 1400 section>

Good Lord, if the 1300s are this strong where you live, I can't imagine what the masters are like. Stockfish at least.

But I'd be curious to hear from someone who knows the King's Gambit where White went wrong.

Oct-15-15  thomastonk: <offramp> That's way better than the game.

<morfishine> I couldn't find a single dreadful blunder.

  kevin86: If white takes the rook, black forks king and rook and remains a piece ahead.
Oct-15-15  thomastonk: <keypusher: But I'd be curious to hear from someone who knows the King's Gambit where White went wrong.> Schlechter annotated the predecessor H Wolf vs Schlechter, 1904, which deviates with 6.. ♕f6. Here are his comments.

<5.♘a4> Best according to the books; refuted in this game.

<5.. exf4!> New! So far, Black played ♗b6 or ♘d7.

<6.c3> No better would be 6.d4 ♗xf3 7.gxf3 ♕h4+.

<6.. ♕f6> Here a6 would have been a better move, which would force White to exchange on c5.

My engine is not convinced by any of Schlechter's evaluations. It "thinks" that 7.d4 was poor, and my human eye agrees: ♘a4 is a problem.

  keypusher: <thomastonk> Thanks! There have been a couple of wondrous games in this variation, it turns out.

Opening Explorer

But as far as the opening goes, I wonder if White didn't get it right the first time.

Mackenzie vs W Gunston, 1890

<keypusher: But as far as the opening goes, I wonder if White didn't get it right the first time. Mackenzie vs W Gunston, 1890> Yes, that's indeed possible. With c3/a6 included, the line is favourable for White. So, Schlechter's and Perlis's a6 should be replaced be something more useful, say 6.. ♘f6 or 6.. ♗b6.

Oh, I beg your pardon. Apart from the Wolf-Schlechter game you posted, I was thinking of

Hebden vs H Schaerer, 1984

G Lopez vs R Biancosino, 1993
