Feb-24-04  drukenknight: another early latvian, why does he pull the B back on move 8 could he get the QN out?
Feb-24-04  ughaibu: Do you mean 8....Nc6? If so what about Nf5 Qf5 Nc7 etc?

  Honza Cervenka: 11.c5 was not good as it interrupted all tension in the centre. 11.Qa4 with idea 11...dxc4(?!) 12.d5 Bd7 13.Qc2 would have been much better. After 11.c5 black had no troubles in the centre and got quickly a decisive advantage by attack on white's pawn chain. Final mating attack (in a position with decisive material advantage) was easy to understand.
Jul-10-04  InspiredByMorphy: This game is ahead of its time. Im impressed with Von der Lasa's play in it. 30. ... Rxf1+! is the beginning of the end for his opponent. Thats what white gets for not developing the Queen bishop.
Sep-21-06  johnnyfroaction: <InspiredByMorphy> true but even if white did develop the bishop, RxR would just lead to mate, white completely ignores any of blacks threats in this game and pays dearly for it.

Mar-04-08  wolfmaster: I could just imagine this game being Shirov-Morozevich...
Sep-28-21  Marcelo Bruno: In Bachmann's "Schach durch Selbst-Unterricht" it appears as played in 1838, i.e., one year earlier.

Polerio vs G da Cutri, 1590

Apparently Houdini is one fine performer.
