Apr-21-03  Green Bishop: A nice game with a beautiful final combination for Mieses, who was 80 years old at that time. Christofel was 24.
Feb-06-07  SBC:

This game, his only win at Hastings 1945-6, won Mieses the Brilliancy prize. He was 80 years old at the time.

Jul-14-09  True2theGame: Reinfeld says he was well over 80 at the time this game was played 1945... That is a MONSTER combination for anybody, much less an 80+ fellow. I should hope to play that well at 80!

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Anyone else feeling a bit disappointed that Mieses finally moved a center pawn? Fortunately, it proved vital to the mating combination.

<An Englishman>, Do you think Mieses saw the mating attack when he played 22...e6, or was he trying to stop Nd5 by Christoffel?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Looks like he only wanted to prevent Nd5. Took a few weak moves by White before Mieses could start to think of brilliancy prizes.
Sep-21-22  Marcelo Bruno: Brillant! A real beautiful souvenir of the old Mieses!
