Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-03-03  ughaibu: One of Stein's sudden tactical strikes.
Nov-03-03  aragorn69: Sure is, ugha (12.Kxf2? Bxc3). But it is, above all, a huge Ljubo blunder : 10.Rd1?? After 10.0-0 or 10.Qd2, the game can go on.

  Benzol: Was this a case of the trapper trapping himself.
10.♖d1 tempts 10...♘fe4.
White would then follow with 11.♕xg7+ ♔xg7 12.♘xe4+ f6 13.♘xc5 with three minor pieces for the Queen. Stein's 10...♘g4 must have come as a lightening bolt.

Wow, what a tactical shot by Stein, 10 ... ♘e5-g4! followed by 11 ... ♘g4xf2!.

Jun-13-09  Ed Trice: Probably one of the stranger positions where white castled.
Jun-13-09  Hugh the Drover: This game ties the record, at White's 12th, for castling closest to the enemy (tying Reti-Wolf, Teplitz-Schonau, 1922, White's 17th).

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Here's another example of castling with the enemy at the gates; in this case, the Knight actually stimulates Black's blistering breakthrough!

Spassky vs Suetin, 1964

  ajk68: I'm confused by white's last move.
Was this a touch rule?
Jul-15-10  ycbaywtb: hoping for R x and Q captures Black's other R, also nice threat of N forking K and Q earlier, neat game...
Nov-01-10  onur87: did stein see 11.Nxf2 beginnig from the 8.Nbd7? Waow! Is this true? As an amateur, i impressed.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Don't recall ever seeing a game till now where one player castled with both rooks under attack.
Jan-08-16  capafischer1: brilliant tactics by Stein. Great move by move book on Stein is just out by everyman chess.
