Jun-01-05  Whitehat1963: An absolutely gorgeous game from the Player of the Day. The queen sac on move 14 is absolutely deadly! Ten checks in 13 moves later we get an excellent checkmate. I'm really surprised no one has commented on this beauty before!
Oct-08-05  SneechLatke: Player of the day (again) puts the Evans to good use. Now this is chess!
May-28-07  Whitehat1963: White to play and mate in 13(!) after 14...Bxd1. Give it a try!
Jul-01-08  madlydeeply: My question is did Schiffers see all the variations after 12 e5? Or did they do homework in those bygone days?

Lovely game

May-13-09  Trigonometrist: This must be "Schiffers' Masterpiece"...

  sachistu: Played at St. Petersburg according to SvSSSR 1954, p.374, in an article by I.Romanov. The game is also given in Schiffers' book 'Самоучитель Шахматной Игры' although Schiffers does not give the venue. However, it almost certainly was played at St. Petersburg. In his book, he stops the score after 21...Rg8 saying White mates in 6. I'll submit a correction slip.

  sachistu: Incidentally, Black is listed as Baron E. Nolde in Schiffers' book. Presumably, this was Baron Eduard von Nolde.
