Aug-26-10  David2009: Flohr vs E Eliskases, 1936 is a fine win by Eliskases (Black against his nemesis Salo Flohr). Prior to this game Eliskases had scored +0=1-5:

In the diagram position Eliskases (Black, to play) throws caution to the winds with 21...Bg4!? (more prudent, and good, is 21...Bd7) and wins in fine style with a positional Queen sacrifice after 22 Qxc6.

Crafty link to explore the variations from the White side of the board: The game continued 22.Qxc6 Rae8 23.Rc3 Bxe2 24.Bh7+ Kxh7 25.Rxe3 Rxe3 26.Rf4 Bd3 27.h3 Be4 28.Kg1 Re6 29.Qd7 Rg3 30.Qxf7 Rxg2+ 31.Kf1 Reg6 32.Qa7 0-1. Can you do better as White against Crafty?

  Mateo: <David2009> I am really surprised by your comment. Eliskases play looks more like bluff than fine play. Very unusual for him by the way. 23.Rc3? was an awful move in a winning position.
Feb-07-19  sudoplatov: <Mateo> It does seem that 23.Nf4 is good for White.
