  whiteshark: This game was from a six-board clock simultaneous against the Argentine national team. Back then Spangenberg was a 2,565-rated grandmaster, but he was still slaughtered.

Already worse, black compounded matters with <15... Bd6?> losing two tempi since if <16... Bxh2+ 17 Kh1 Bd7 18 g3 Bc6 19 d5> wins a piece. At the end, Black is losing a whole rook.
