Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-26-08  sneaky pete: Weiß gab auf, denn auf das beabsichtigte 15.Kf1-g1 folgt Sc6-e5 mit der Drohung des seltenen Mattbildes Sf3 matt.

Für ein Meisterturnier eine selten kurze und etwas zu lustige Partie, an den Europas zerrütteter sozialpolitischer Nervenzustand nach (?) dem Weltkriege teilweise schuld hat. Denn selbts einem Schachmeister nützt es nichts, sich von Politik fern zu halten, weil eben der Politik sich leider auch mit ihm befaßt!

(Glossen von Semion Alapin, der auch für diese aus obigen Grunde um Nachsicht bittet.)

Apr-04-16  King.Arthur.Brazil: As the "Sneaky pete" said, after 15.Kg1 Ne5. So 16. Qxd8??(and others) Nf3# (rare kind of mate). 16.f2xe3 Nf3+ 17.Kg2 Nxd2 (white looses the Q).
Feb-18-18  ughaibu: In this tournament, 6.7% of the games were won and lost in less than twenty moves. The other two are: Tartakower vs J Mieses, 1920 and candidate for position of the day: Reti vs Maroczy, 1920 Move 14, white to play.
