  OhioChessFan: The final position looks more like a puzzle than anything that would happen OTB. Amazing game. Black's 29th move is spectacular. Chernev had this game in a couple of his books.

  wwall: Not so sure if 29...Rxf3 is sound (29...Be5 looks better). After 29...Rxf3 30.gxf3 Qxh3 31.Qe2, instead of 31...g5, best seems 32...Re8, threatening ...Re5 and ...Rg5 mate.

After 31...g5, instead of 32.Qf1, giving up a pawn, perhaps 32.Red1 and 33.Rd3.

Instead of 33...Qxg2+, better may be 33...Qc3.

40.Rxb7? looks like the losing move. Perhaps White can draw with 40.Kg1 h3 41.Rd4 g3 42.Rd3 gxf2+ 43.Kxf2. Another method is 40.e5 h5 41.Kg1 Be3 42.fxe3 g3 43.Rd4 f2+ 44.Kf1 h2 45.Rh4, stopping the pawn from queening.

  Jean Defuse: ...

Charousek's opponent in this game was the little known player <A. Berger>!


Oct-14-18  Nosnibor: <Jean Defuse> You are correct. In fact the only game that Charousek played J D Berger was in the Cologne Tournament in 1898 when he lost in 24 moves having made a blunder in a good position.He was then suffering from his terminal illness.
Oct-18-19  Chessist: In Cologne Charousek lost in 32 moves.
