Apr-11-02  The Young Learner: At move 14 here are a few other possibilities for white: 14. Kf7+ Rxf7 15. Bxf7! Opening up the d file giving blacks queen basically no other choice but to exchange queens at 15 ...Qxd1 16.eRxd1 threatening mate in order to let his bishop escape and also a huge material and positioning gain! -Andrew Heidemann, age 16

  Sneaky: Andrew, I agree with you except for one nitpick... please say Nf7+ to mean kNight (we use the K for the king!)
Dec-24-05  organist: I would love to know how White would have met 12...bxc6. There's lots of tactics, but they always seem to work out in Black's favour.
Oct-25-07  The Chess Express: 12. Bxc6? Nxg5! 13. Bxd5+ Kh8 14. Nf3 c6 15. Nxg5 fxg5 16. Bc4 Bf5 or Qf6 should win for black. White had to try 12. Nxb6 cxb6 13. Bxc6 Nxc3 14. Qb3 Nxa2 15. Bxd5+ Kh8 16. Bxa8 Bxe1 17. Be3 Ba5 18. Rd1 Qe7 19. Qxa2 Bb6
May-26-08  JimmyVermeer: According to Laszlo Polgar, Black resigned on the 19th move. Kg8 was a better move for Black anyway. Anyone know if 19...Rf6 is what actually happened?
Jul-10-09  Gambit All: What's wrong with 20...♕g8 22. ♖xg8+ ♔xg8 23.♕xh7 ♔f8?

Maybe 20...♕g8 21.♗f7 ♖xf7 22. ♕xf7 ♗e6 23. ♕xg7 ♗xg7 24. ♖xa8

Then white has R vs B ending.
Was ther anything faster for White?

  MissScarlett: Linlithgowshire Gazette, January 13th 1933, p.8:

<"In Memoriam," of Dr J. Schumer, London, who passed away last month, we give a very brilliant little game from his book of “Chesslets” (published 1928). It was played in Berlin Tourney for “Mastership" in 1926, and the Shakespearean quotations were added by Dr Schumer for his book:—

“Ruy Lopez“

White—Von Hanning Black—Langner.>

  Tabanus: Von Hanning? Not JR then.

  Tabanus: I requested this game moved to Heinrich von Hennig. At least for sure it's not by JR.
