  Gilmoy: <23 (not 25)..Qxe7> 24.Qxe7 Bxe7 25.Be5+ and mate next. It's like a diagonal version of weak back rank -- Black's Bf6 doesn't protect e7 because it can't leave the long diagonal.

  MissScarlett: The occasion of this game was a tour by the Hastings CC of Germany in August, 1903, wherein they played the might of the clubs of Berlin, Nuremberg, Dresden, Cologne and Wiesbaden. There's an extended report by one of the tourists in the <Hastings & St. Leonards Observer> of the 22nd and 29th of August 1903, replete with period charm and detail about hospitable locals, wonderful scenery and architecture; the chess went quite well, too.
