Jan-14-05  zb2cr: This is a fun little miniature. If
11 ... Nc6; 12 Nxc6. Two variations:
(a) 12 ... bxc6; 13 Bxc6+, Ke7; 14 Nd5+, exd5; 15 Qe5#, very similar to the actual game.

(b) 12 ... exf5; 13 Nxd8+, Kxd8; 14 Nd2, Nxb5; 15 axb5, Bc5 leading to a fascinating position where Black has only partial compensation for the lost piece but White's game is kind of tangled.

Jan-27-06  Pawsome: <zbcr> if 11... Nc6 12. Qf3 dxc3 13. Nxc6 Qc7 14. Nd4+ Nxb5 15. Nxb5 Qe5+ 16. Qe2 wins and avoids the snarl in your line (b).
Aug-30-09  JimmyVermeer: This is game #4638 in Laszlo Polgar's "CHESS: 5334 Problems, Combinations, and Games". The 2nd and 3rd moves of each player are transposed in the book. Can anyone confirm what the correct order of the moves is? Also, the book spells the Black player's name as "Margulies". Might this also be a typo?

  sea7kenp: I can hear White now: "If you won't take my Queen, I'll Mate you with her!"
Jul-03-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: The German word Nadel can mean either "needle" or "pin". Unfortunately, this wonderful little game doesn't much involve pins, and it's Nadel's only game in the database.

Nadel Unpinned?

  Phony Benoni: Clearly a case of Premature Development. According to his bio, Igor Margulis was born in 1938, six years after this game was played.

We have other players named "Margulis" or similar variants, but none seem to fit this unlucky fellow. Perhaps he should just be returned to ANNonimity.
