Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-17-04  mjk: White starts to go wrong with 6.a3, perhaps too worried about ♗b4+. Then 7.g3 and 8.e3 leaves him with 8♙s, but only one of them on a black square. Does White have to try 8.exd3 to have a chance?
Sep-17-04  caballos2: Probably. Exchanging the bishops followed by Qe2 looks playable, although white has lost the ability to castle.
Jan-07-05  azaris: I'm fairly sure this was none other than the great Kurt P O J Richter, but was he in Berlin at the time?
Dec-12-09  Alan McGowan: This was Kurt Richter with the black pieces. The game was played in the Master Tournament of the Berliner Schachgesellschaft, one of the major clubs in Berlin.
