Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-23-04  Knight13: 12. Qxe5 wasn't a good idea...? 17. Kh1 Qxe8+ 12. Kg2 then 12... cxd6 or 12... Qxc8. Their choice.
Jul-04-05  aw1988: I think he just overlooked Bxh3.
Dec-15-08  YoungEd: The end is sadistic! "I won't just win your queen for a bishop, I'll pick up your rook with check, too!"

  whiteshark: "We learn that the game, as played here, is already forestalled in an analysis of this opening by Professor Berger, which appeared in the "Chess Monthly", but Mr. Lipschuetz assures us that he had never seen it."

  perfidious: Twenty games between these players, all of which had a decisive result.

Rather different than the recent Candidates Matches!

Sep-12-12  s.c.subramanian: excellent game
Jul-04-14  celtrusco: Beautiful!
Dec-19-18  jphamlore: The names of these two players are not included in Emanuel Lasker's brief notes on page 92 of his Common Sense in Chess.

  sea7kenp: The Knight that White took on Move 12 was, not just Poisoned, but laced with Cyanide!
Apr-11-20  SeanAzarin: Delmar only used half his forces. Everything left of the Q file is still on its original square. No wonder he lost!
