Apr-08-05  Whitehat1963: Spielman gets embarrassed.

  offramp: 9.Ne2 looks like the losing move, but it looks so natural.
Oct-19-07  JG27Pyth: JG27Pyth: Valeri Beim annotates this game in "How to Play Dynamic Chess"

He finds white's opening play suspect from move 4 on... giving white ?! on moves 4, 5, 7, and 8 gets ?

Beim thinks Chigorin's 8...Qe7+ is not the sharpest response. He prefers 8...Qh4+! provoking 9.g3 and now 9...Qe7+

White's 9. Ne2? is indeed Spielman's final error.

Beim thinks white might have better continued 9.Qe2 Nd4 10.Qxe7+ Nxe7 11.Bb3 Be6! 12. Nf3 Bxb3 13.Nxd4 Bd5. and it's "none too appealing for White, but still playable."

The note after 11...Nde3+ is "A gruesome spectacle. It's high time for white to resign!"

I'm kinda surprised Spielmann didn't see it that way too... Maybe he didn't want to formally admit he'd been whipped in an 11 move ultra-miniature... and held on for the more respectable 19 moves.

  perfidious: Chigorin's prowess as White in open games has rightly been lauded, but he was also capable of ruthlessly exploiting weak play from the other side of the board.
Jun-02-23  Stolzenberg: <JG27Pyth>: ... finds white's opening play suspect from move 4 on ... . <4. f4> was indeed a bad move. Instead White should have developed his knights first of all. <4. Nc3> = Vienna Game (C28) or <4. Nf3> = Two Knights Defense (C55) by transposition.
