  kevin86: Wow!!! A neat way to start a week. It looks like a mismatch:2 rooks vs 2 minor pieces and 2 pawns--and it is:the rooks have no chance. Even 2 rooks vs the pawns are still one sided,in favor of the pawns.

A nice win for black!

  jaime gallegos: How many great players didnt reach higher levels on chess world or are not easily found on books?

I mention Max Weiss who won ( together with Chigorin who reached Weiss on thelast round ) on New York supertournament 1889, he was a great positional player ( the Petrossian of his time ) but he worked for the Rotschilds an dissapear as chessplayer. Other great player was Louis Eichborn who never lost a game against Andersson and live in the same city the german Breslau, currently the polish Wroclaw.

Ive never heard about Yuchtman ( or Yukhtman in other databases ) but he was a great player too, unfortunately was not promoted to the elite in soviet union for his political ideas. Ive found 65 games of this great player with a great score !

Dec-29-03  refutor: at the very least i'd think this ECO code would be Benoni Defense (A56) as opposed to A10
Dec-29-03  pilot: Refutor, I see where you're comming from. It does look Benoni-ish especially the pawn structure by move 10 on the Black side. But White's formation doesn't look at all like an Anti-Benoni attack. (and probrably why White ended up losing)
Dec-30-03  euripides: 13...Qb4 commits Black to the first exchange sacrifice, which seems to be entirely correct. An impressively powerful win against Huebner who was one of the best players in the world in the mid-70s.
May-20-06  yukhtman: According to Leonid Shamkovich (Chess Life, december 1998) Yuchtman suffered a heart attack during this game.

  FSR: A glorious win as Black against one of the world's best players.
Dec-27-12  cunctatorg: Imho, this game fully deserves to become a GotD, some possible mistakes (I failed to locate them of course) aside!
