Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-14-04  kostich in time: A truly amazing game, especially considering the fact that Herman Stiener was TWO at the time this game was played..chessgames, I think you have this "Herman Stiener" confused with the 1949 US Champion of the same nmae.
Apr-15-07  BadTemper: I just noticed the same thing.

I wish I could play this strongly at 25, nevermind 2 years old.

Oct-24-10  Calli: Probably this is Bernát Steiner who Forgacs played at the Hungarian National Tournament in 1907 (Ungarisches Nationalturnier in Szekesfehervär).

  GrahamClayton: Irrespective of which Steiner played this game, it is a very instructive ending.
Aug-04-14  Karpova: White was Bernat Steiner, and the game was played in the 11th round of the 2nd Hungarian National Tournament at Székesfehérvár on 16 August 1907.

May-02-16  ChessPoet919: I really admire how Mr. Steiner capitalized on his more active Rook in the endgame. Using his Rook to provoke weaknesses in Black's position with 22. Rg4, along with his ability to accurately calculate the consequences of 37. Rf6 to his advantage, is worthy of a great endgame workshop tutorial.
