Apr-14-04  Checkmate4327: The move 13 0-0 is imaginative. I checked this game with Fritz 6 and the draw is definitely forced. Some variations are: 14...Kd7 15 Be6+ Ke7 16 Nd5+ Ke8 17 Bf7+ Kd7( if 17...Kf8 then 18 Ne6 checkmate) 18 Be6+ and perpetual. 14...Kf8 15 Ne6+ Ke7 16 Nd5+ Kd7 17 Nxd8 Bxb2 18 Be6+ Kxd8 19 Rf7 Bd4+ (19...Re8 20 Rd7+ Kc8 21 Ne7+ Kb8 22 Rb1 Bd4+ 23 Kh2 b6 24 g4 wins the bishop) 20 Kf1 Re8 (20...g5 21 Rd7+ Ke8 22 Rb1 Kf8 23 Rxb7 Bb6 24 Nxc7 Bxc7 25 Rdxc7 and white wins) 21 Rd7+ Kc8 22 Rxc7+ Kb8 23 Rb1 Rf8+ 24 Ke1 Bf2+ 25 Kd2 b6 26 g4 and White wins because of Black's trapped bishop.
Oct-07-04  The Analyst: The book "Draw" by W.Heidenfeld has annotations to this game. Some interesting points made by Heidenfeld: 10 f3 can be met by 10...e5!, when 11 fxg4 11...Bd2+ 12 Kf2 Qf6+ 13 Kg3 Qf4+ 14 Nxf4 exf4+ 15 Kf2 Be3+ 16 Kf1 Rh1 is mate. " For a master game like that one would presumably have to scratch around in yellowed 19th century documents."- Heidenfeld " The following game will never be regarded as a model of strategic planning - it is a completely tactical melee from an opening that bears the label "irregular" with some justification (one can hardly saddle Robatsch with the responsibility by calling it a Robatsch Defence)."-Heidenfeld

  OlimpBase: A masterpiece. The Spaniard Mora was not Maria Teresa (a woman) but Federico instead.
Feb-19-06  MorphyMatt: 2. h4 is weird.
Feb-23-06  FrancisGrasso: That's quite an amazing piece of
analysis by Heidenfeld there. Most
of us would not have seen that!
May-24-08  addiction to chess: A strange queen sac to force a draw!?!

  GrahamClayton: 10. ♕c1 and the non-played 10. f3 highlight one of the tactical features of the game - the unprotected rooks on the h-file.
