  Pawn and Two: This game is from the Prague Olympics of 1931, where Kurt Richter finished 3rd on board 4, with a score of 10.5 - 4.5 (+7 =7 -1).

At move 14, Black had a difficult choice. Fritz indicates his best continuation was: (.70) (20 ply) 14...Bb7 15.g4 Nd7 16.gxh5 gxh5 17.Rhg1 f6 18.exf6 Nxf6 19.Qe5 Bd6 20.Qxe6 Qxe6 21.Nxe6.

After 14...b4?, Richter found the brilliant and winning 15.Rxd5!!
