  Benzol: Why didn't Black play 25...♖xd1+?
Mar-14-04  Pawn Ambush: Why this great chessplayer is almost aways overlooked is beyond me,this game is a gem. The play against the hanging pawns is a model,14.e4 with the idea of pinning the black knight against the Queen is very instructive, a must game to study for all 1.d4 players.

25....Rd1 looks playable but probably loses in the long run,Whites plan should be to try and use his queen side Pawn majority and create a passed pawn which should distract a black piece or 2, then hopefully some tactical possibilities open up,ie fork, skewer etc.

Schechter too one of the most accurate players to ever move a chess piece.

  vonKrolock: This is a Game about which I'll like to know Schlechter's own views - The piece sac <15.♘xd4> and the sequence until <17...a6> seems to be ok, but now

click for larger view

<18.♗c6> was not the best possibility - That would be 18.♗a4!: The point is, that after 18...♖a7 19.♗h6+! (stronger than the immediate e4-e5 ♘g8!? etc) 20.e5 ♘xe5 21.♖xd8 ♖xd8, White would obtain a decisive advantage with 22.♕e3
