Dec-06-09  AESTRADAR: f9....g5? A definitive mistake. In view of the menace g5=g4 it seems good the situation. White found however the refutation the black attack
Sep-17-11  ozmikey: Beautifully crisp attacking game from Boleslavsky. In the later game G A Thomas vs Wade, 1948 Black opted for the more tenacious 10...g4 11. cxd5 Bxd5 (11...gxf3?? 12. Qxe4), but even in that line White should probably emerge with the advantage.

  perfidious: This game does nothing to dispel the idea that 9....Be7 10.Rd1 0-0 is a stronger continuation for Black.

Stoltz was an excellent attacker, but here he falters in defence and Boleslavsky makes short work of him.
