  cu8sfan: Wow! This game is incredible! I've never heard of Victor Sjoberg before but Siegbert Tarrasch was quite a good and well known player in his days. And he got beat in very entertaining style here.
May-13-05  Ziggurat: This was a friendly game between Sjöberg and Tarrasch, who had come to Sweden to give a simultaneous exhibition. The game was played on the night of Tarrasch's arrival.

"Victor Sjöberg broke his promise to Tarrasch not to publish the game - Tarrasch claimed that he was tired after the journey and could not play at his best. Victor Sjöberg (1876-1947) was one of Sweden's leading players during the first decades of the 20th century."

  Phony Benoni: White's d-pawn traveled in the other direction in Potter vs. Quillen, US Open, 1951:

<1.d4 f5 2.e4 fxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 c5 5.dxc5 e5 6.Be3 b6 7.cxb6 d5 8.Bb5+ Kf7 9.bxa7>

You're asking me what's going on? White eventually won after the game got crazy.

Aug-27-15  fispok: I love how at move 18, black's K is in the center, and every single remaining attacking piece is circled around it.
Aug-27-15  JimNorCal: After 29. Ng3, black can almost turn the tables with RxB. But not quite.
