May-25-05  arielbekarov: Todays opening!

Carl Schlechter was one of the most refined chessplayers ever and known for his noble character. He was always a Gentleman and known for his generosity regarding paying compliments to his opponents.

But on the chessboard was he unmerciful!
Look here what a skill he possess(es)!

I can't stop admire his art.

May-26-05  Pawn Ambush: This is true and he played almost perfect chess I would have like to see him play Capablaca in a match.
May-27-06  CapablancaFan: Amazing queen sac!
Apr-15-11  lost in space: How nice. I like the sequence dxc5, b4, b5 in the opining and of course the way he played the middlegame (opening the center for the bishops, activating the nights via e5 and c4), also playing on the queenside (a4, a5. a6) and this nice queen sac.

Schlechter is not very well known, but he was one of the greatest.
