May-04-05  schnarre: Love the finish!!
May-12-05  halcyonteam: Nice finish, not hard to guess the finishing repetoire!
Oct-19-05  lopium: Yes, nice sacrifice.
Jan-13-06  schnarre: Adds insult to injury!
Sep-15-06  micartouse: The combination beginning with 22. Qxh6! is similar to Janowski vs Samisch, 1925, with the bishops on the same diagonals, a queen sac on h6, and a rook on the g-file. Very nice! <It would be funny if white sacrificed his second rook just for fun!> No, Black could block the second rook with the queen!
Dec-07-08  thebribri8: This is a good Christmastime game; all the Rudolf's.
Apr-25-09  WhiteRook48: Oh, deer.
Sep-10-10  sevenseaman: Q sacs for a swift win make for a lot of glamor on the chess board but this one is reborn in a matter of two moves. Very pretty!

  Mating Net: As my man <patzer2> stated a long time ago, <Black is busted after 20. g4!> This is the kind of move that I could never even consider playing until I cracked 1500. I would have lunged in with an unsound sacrifice. Instead, 20.g4! dislodges the Knight, when it reaches g5, and enables White to open the g file.

  offramp: There's an English opening and a French and a Spanish ... how did the Germans miss out?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Well, <offramp>, at least Berlin didn't miss out. Nonetheless, given their 19th Century dominance, you do raise a good question!
Feb-08-15  shivasuri4: <offramp>, how about the Berlin Defence, one of the more popular openings (variations?) played today?

  al wazir: 20...Nd5 gives black some hope.
Feb-08-15  daveinsatiable: <al wazir> sadly not: 21. Qxe7 1-0
Feb-08-15  Smite: crude, and totally unacceptable!
Feb-08-15  shivasuri4: <daveinstable>, 21.Qxe7 Nxe7 only serves to defuse the attack.

<al wazir>, what would Black reply to 20...Nd5 21.g5? I see nothing satisfactory.

Feb-08-15  daveinsatiable: <shivasuri> Thanks for the correction. I should have known that the error would be mine, not the ever reliable <al wazir>'s.
Feb-08-15  shivasuri4: Sorry, I misread your name. Satiable and stable are not even close.
Feb-08-15  psmith: <patzer2> <drukenknight> 12 years later... an older version of Rybka recommends 20...Bf3 21. g5 Ng4 22. Bf6! as winning for White...

  al wazir: <shivasuri4: what would Black reply to 20...Nd5 21.g5? I see nothing>.

21..Kf8, maybe? I admit it doesn't look good for black. But if 22. gxh6, then 22...Qxh5, and now the ♙ has a hard time promoting. (If 23. hxg7, then 23...Kg8. If 23. Bxf7+ or 23. Rxg7, then 23...Ke8.)

<daveinsatiable: ... ever reliable ...>? You must be confusing me with someone else.

Feb-13-15  shivasuri4: 20...Nd5 21.g5 Kf8 falls to 22.Bxg7+, when the Bishop is taboo (since 22...Kxg7 loses immediately to 23.Qh6+ Kg8 24.Bh7+ with mate to follow). After 22...Ke8 23.Qxh6, Black might as well save himself some trouble by resigning immediately.

Apr-07-19  mulde: Luckily, I was happy enough to find a few dealing with Rudolf L'Hermet. The author focuses on his subject's exact date of death (25-Nov-1945, ~6.00 h) - unfortunately there is no English translation, and it would be difficult to create one; Schönebeck – Eine Reise in die Schachgeschichte Sachsen-Anhalts Veröffentlicht: Samstag, 06. April 2019 09:53 | Geschrieben von Konrad Reiß Am 28. März 2019 begab ich mich auf Spurensuche nach Schönebeck, Sachsen-Anhalts Schachgeschichte im Visier. Drei Zielsetzungen hatte ich mir gestellt. Die erste lag in der Person des Johann Georg Rudolf L´hermet. Dieser Mann, geboren am 28. Dezember 1859 in Magdeburg, gehörte neben Paul Lipke und Walther Freiherr von Holzhausen an der Schwelle zum 20. Jahrhundert zu den stärksten Spielern Sachsen-Anhalts. Er nahm sogar an Deutschen Meisterschaften teil. Auffällig ist, er ist in seiner Wahlheimat Schönebeck gänzlich unbekannt. Dennoch gelang es mir mit Hilfe von Mathias Hille vom Stadtarchiv Schönebeck nachzuweisen, dass L´hermet in seinem Wohnhaus in der Köthener Straße 16 als Direktor i.R. am 25. November 1945 gegen 6.00 Uhr in Schönebeck im hohen Alter an Kreislauf- und Altersschwäche verstarb. Bislang wurde, incl. Wikipedia, immer Magdeburg als Sterbeort angegeben. L´hermet gehörte wegen seiner hugenottischen Abstammung der Französisch-reformierten Kirche an. https://www.schach-sachsen-anhalt.d...
