Jul-25-11  abuzic: <scormus:.... .... and spoil the happy ending? Then we wouldnt have got this GOTD> yes you're right. If I were watching live (after reading this post of course), I would like black to blunder 30...Qe6? and enjoy a lovely ending! After 30...Qe6 31.g4+ it is forced mate whatever black plays.
Jul-25-11  The HeavenSmile: Absolutely clinical finish! Completely pefect
Jul-25-11  weisyschwarz: Clever positional play!

  kevin86: The king's fate is sealed;only a kamikazi move can delay the mate one move-otherwise,white goes directly to f2 with the clergyman,and it's history...
Jul-25-11  Sem: There is a game Donner vs. Spanjaard from the 1960s (not in Chessgames' database), in which Donner gets mated in a similar, beautiful way. Like a study by Reti.

The position at move 14 is well known theoretically and has been reached dozens of times. The Fritz database has 16 examples from the century 1904 to 2004.

30...Qe6 is a terrible blunder. Once the Black King has been driven to a square like h5, mate is in the air, and the queen sac is not hard to see. It was vital to play 30...f4, when white has no mate and black has winning chances.

  Domdaniel: Philipp Meitner was the father of the somewhat more famous physicist, Lise Meitner (after whom the element Meitnerium was named).

Sep-06-16  goodevans: It's incredible when the stars align so conveniently. Even black's own d6 pawn joins in the conspiracy against his king.
Jun-05-20  Retireborn: Is there any information about the occasion of this game? It's not from the Kolisch memorial, but was there another tournament in Vienna that year?
Jun-05-20  JimNorCal: Gorgeous finish!!

28. ... Qe7 probably holds the balance?

Jun-05-20  Granny O Doul: 28...Qe7 invites an ending where White has a passed a-pawn supported by a piece, and his king closer to the action than its counterpart. It looks to me lost for Black. As noted above, 30...Qe6 was the losing moment.
Jan-07-22  RookFile: What a wonderful conclusion to a grand game by Schlechter.
