  vonKrolock: Excellent sample of the broad shape and quiet manoeuvering skill of young Flohr in his spectacular +14 -2 =1 performance for Czechoslovakian team in this Hamburg 1930 Ol (second best first board after Rubinstein's 88,2% - NOTE: Alekhine's 9 in 9 for France where attained against the weaker Teams - his stronger adversary was the Swedish Stahlberg)

<14...Bf5> When confronting the same position from the other side, Flohr played 14...f5 etc, as in A Pokorny vs Flohr, 1932 A Pokorny vs Flohr, 1932 the text moves engages White in a difficult and passive defense whith very a narrow path...

<23...f6> Or 23...h5 24.Nf2 h4, avoiding the imminent infantry attack, but providing White still another target...

<40...Rf6> Whith 40...g6 41.Qb1 Rd7 42.Rgh3 Be6 43.Rh2 h5 etc Black could offer some further resistence, but in the due term White's superiority in material and position would surely prevail
