Sep-19-08  Xeroxx: I added this to my collection: "collection a long time ago. But still no comment. Nice game by Spielmann here he defends a position rather than making sacs himself.

  whiteshark: A second win from Spielmann with <10...g6> at the same tournament: Bogoljubov vs Spielmann, 1919

I wonder why nobody played it thereafter.

May-04-11  David2009: <whiteshark: A second win from Spielmann with <10...g6> at the same tournament: Bogoljubov vs Spielmann, 1919

I wonder why nobody played it thereafter.> In an exhibition game played after the tournament, Bogoljubov deviated with 17.Qc3 and won (Bogoljubov vs Spielmann, 1919).

  Retireborn: In his TfS notes Spielmann is critical of 12.Bd3, which he calls premature. He recommends 12.dxc5 Qxc5? 13.Bd3, not noticing that 13.Nxe6! (Houdini) wins quickly in that case (after 12.dxc5 Nc6 Black is OK.)

However it is 14.Nxd5? which loses; both players miss that 14.Bxg6! fxg6 15.Nxd5 will lead to an unclear position.

  perfidious: Most innaresting to see Spielmann in the unusual role of defender.
