|May-10-13|| ||offramp: After 25.Ne7 black said, "What have you taken?"|
|May-10-13|| ||King Sacrificer: What a game! Thanks to Hoenlinger for playing to the end.|
|May-10-13|| ||Abdel Irada: Last time someone named Baldur made a dash, it ended in tears after Loki found a bit of mistletoe....|
|May-10-13|| ||TheTamale: Wow! One of my favorite GOTDs in a long time. Nice game by the Rowdy Rudy.|
|May-10-13|| ||catlover: <in the unlikely case you're seeing this game for the first time, enjoy>|
You're right. This was a fun game. Also, good joke about about Spielmann being "Baldur".
|May-10-13|| ||Chessdreamer: Apparently this game was not played until checkmate & Black actually resigned after 25.Ne7+. (Spielmann: Richtig opfern)|
|May-10-13|| ||kevin86: Wow! What a zoo of pins and sacrifices!|
|May-10-13|| ||FSR: From the pun, I was expecting to see Spielmann vs M Walter, 1928, another famous Spielmann demolition of a Caro-Kann, which featured a "dash" by Black's king (Ke8-d7-c7-b7-a6-b5-c5).|
|May-12-13|| ||EvanTheTerrible: Great.|
|Apr-29-14|| ||Mating Net: After going through the whole game, Black's 16…Nd5? simply opened the floodgates. It allowed Qh5 on the next move and White's combination followed. The best kingside defender is a Knight on f6 and this game goes a long way in confirming it.|
|Nov-29-16|| ||N.O.F. NAJDORF: I've just played through this game for the first time ever and, without having read Pts92'S comment, I wondered why Spielmann didn't play 20 Qe5. |
E.g. 20 Qe5 Kg7
21 Nh5+ gxh5
a familiar trick perhaps best-known from the game Botvinnik v Capablanca, AVRO 1938.
|Feb-10-17|| ||BxChess: I think 24. Nd6 also wins. Play probably continues 24. ...Qxd6 25. Bxg6 fxg6 26. Rxd6 Rxc2 (grasping at straws) 27. Rdxe6 Rxb2 28. Rxe8 with mate to follow.|
|Feb-10-17|| ||al wazir: I wanted to play 24. Re3, threatening 25. Rh3. If 24...Qxe3, then 25. Nxe3, and white has ♕ vs. ♖. If 25. Qxf5, then 26. Bxf5; white has ♕ vs. ♘, and the threat of Rh3 is still there, along with two new threats: 26...exf5 27. Rxe8 followed by 28. Qg7#, and 26...gxf5 27. Rg3+.|
|Feb-10-17|| ||badenbaden: Una preciosidad de ataque!!|
|Feb-10-17|| ||patzer2: Easily found 23. Nf5! for today's Friday solution. |
Here's some analysis with Deep Fritz 15:
<23. Nf5 Qc5>
If 23... gxf5, then White wins after 24. Bxf5 f6 25. Bxe6+ Kh8 (25... Rf7 26. Bxc8 ) 26. Rd7 (#8 to follow.)
<24. Re5> This wins, but also strong is my choice 24. Ng7! when play might continue 24...f6 25. Nxe6 (+18.63 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 15)
<24... Bd5 25. Ne7+ 1-0>
Black resigns in lieu of 25...Qxe7 26. Qxh7+ Kxh7 27. Rh5+ Kg8 28. Rh8#.
For a Black improvement, I'd replace 16...Nd5 allowing 17. Qh5 (+1.06 @ 25 depth, Houdini 4) with 16...Rc8 17. Re1 Rc5 = (0.00 @ 40 depth, Stockfish 8.)
Early in the opening, instead of 5...e6, I prefer 5...h5 as in Black's win in S Das vs Nisipeanu, 2012.
P.S.: Though I still don't like 10...b6 very much, I now think I was too critical of the move 12 years ago. The early 5...h5 appears to give Black good play without worrying about 10...b6 in the game line.
|Feb-10-17|| ||al wazir: Damn! I already suggested 24. Re3, seven years ago: Spielmann vs B Hoenlinger, 1929 (kibitz #53).|
|Feb-10-17|| ||agb2002: White has the bishop pair for a bishop and a knight.|
The first idea that comes to mind is 23.Re5, threatening 24.Qxh7+ Kxh7 25.Rh5+ Kg8 26.Rh8#. However, Black has 23... f6 which seems to slow down the attack.
Another option is 23.Nf5:
A) 23... gxf5 24.Bxf5 f6 (24... Nf6 25.Bxf6 and mate next) 25.Bxe6+
A.1) 25... Kh8 26.Rd7 Qg7 (26... Qxd7 27.Qxf8#; 26... Rc7 27.Rxe7 Rxe7 28.Qxf8#) 27.Rxg7 Nxg7 28.Bxc8 Bxc8 29.Re7 Rg8 30.Bxf6 wins.
A.2) 25... Rf7 26.Rd7 Qxd7 (26... Rc7 27.Rxe7 Rcxe7 28.Bxf7+ wins decisive material) 27.Bxd7 Rd8 28.Be6 wins decisive material (28.Bxe8 Re7).
B) 23... Qc(d)7 24.Nd6
B.1) 24... Nxd6 25.Qg7#.
B.2) 24... Qxd6 25.Bxg6 fxg6 (25... hxg6 26.Qh8#) 26.Rxd6 + - [Q+P vs 2N] (26... Nxd6 27.Qg7#).
B.3) 24... Rd8 25.Nxe8 wins decisive material (25... Rf(d)xe8 26.Qg7#).
C) 23... Qc5 24.Re5
C.1) 24... Qc7 25.Ne7+ Qxe7 (25... Kh8 26.Qxf8#) 26.Qxh7+ Kxh7 27.Rh5+ Kg8 28.Rh8#.
C.2) 24... Qxe5 25.Ne7+ Kh8 26.Qxf8#.
An overworked puzzle at move 25 or 26. much more interesting at move 23.
|Feb-10-17|| ||Big Pawn: I saw
23. Nf5 Qc5
24. Bd4 Qc7
25. Be5 Qc5
Winning the Queen if black doesn't resign.
|Feb-10-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: I found 23. Nf5, then I looked at the game|
|Feb-10-17|| ||mel gibson: The computer agrees with the first move:

|Feb-10-17|| ||offramp: I think I first saw this in Chernev's The Chess Companion. I think he gave the moves to mate, which is reasonable. I thought the game was brilliant when I first saw it and I have never changed that opinion!|
|Feb-10-17|| ||FrogC: Not very sporting of Black to resign without giving Spielmann the chance to play his queen sac.|
|Feb-10-17|| ||beenthere240: I think everyone can see the impending queen sac and mate. Otherwise White has just dropped a knight. By resigning after 25. Ne7+, black preserved the elegance of Spielmann's idea.|
|Feb-10-17|| ||gofer: OMG! Black has a really miserable position. Na5 is just sitting
there "on rim, being dim". On the other side of the equation,
white has everything pointing in the right direction. Time to
apply pressure on Qe7, with a knight that is ready to die or
trample black under its hooves...
<23 Nf5 ...>
Moving the queen loses...
Qc5 leads to a beautiful mate...
23 ... Qc5
24 Re5!!! Qc7/Bd5 (Qxe5 25 Ne7+! Kh8 26 Qxf8#)
25 Ne7+ Qxe7 (Kh8 26 Qxf8#)

27 Rh5+ Kg8

White threatens 25 Ne7+ Kh8 26 Qxf8# and only the queen can stop it!
24 ... Nxf6 25 Qg7#

25 Re3 preparing Qxh7+ mating and black can resign.
The knight is immune, but as everything else loses immediately black doesn't have much choice!!!

|Feb-10-17|| ||catlover: Got this one. Then I saw my post from 2013 and realized I'd seen this game before. No wonder I got it.|
