Nov-18-06  Calli: Herr Schlechter, away the homeland, decides to shed the "drawing master" tag and go wild with 15.Rxd7! and 19.Nf5! Unfortunately he errs with 21.Qh3? and Marshall pounces 21...Bxf2!+ Amazing, the game is lost at that point. Schlechter pointed out that 21.Qh5 should at least draw. Live by the sword...
Apr-23-09  vonKrolock: <6.c3> With this order of moves, similar games like Spielmann vs Alekhine, 1912 and Tartakower vs J N Berger, 1907 can pass unnoticed - well, it seems that the acceptance of this gambit was considered somewhat dangerous...

the point of 21.♕h5 is that the actual 21...♗xf2+ would then be out of question
