|Nov-17-10|| ||Lovuschka: The name of chess composer and master Peter Schmidt is wrongly associated with this game, it seems.|
|Oct-23-12|| ||GrahamClayton: Amazing finish, with the promotion to a knight protecting the en-prise rook, and allowing checkmate to occur.|
|Aug-24-14|| ||Mating Net: A tremendous under promotion. Black can't even counter sac his Queen to avoid disaster as his undeveloped kingside can't stop the b pawn or protect his King.|
|Apr-01-15|| ||mikealando: Wow! That takes some deeper chess foresight!! Still amazed by this checkmate several years after I first came across it in the Mammoth Book of Chess by Graham Burgess. Thought to Google it today, recalling keywords Schmidt, Bundesliga and 1972.
|Mar-03-18|| ||Sally Simpson: Used this game here:
It is one of the most instructive games ever played. An ideal tool for someone coaching beginners.
Easy to remember and explain and that dramatic finish. it's the kind of game that can hook a beginner to chess for life. (40 years later they will hate you for showing it to them.)
|Mar-14-18|| ||areknames: Don't remember ever seeing this game before, pretty amazing stuff.|
|Mar-14-18|| ||Steve.Patzer: Wow! Amazing finish|
|Mar-14-18|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Such an astonishing game that it becomes easy to wonder if someone composed it, and if "Schmidt" is the German language equivalent of NN.|
7.d5 appears in the CG database only in this game. In playing through it, believed that 5...e6 was safer, but it has fared poorly in the database. Perhaps 7...Bxe3 or 9...Qxb2 were the real mistakes?
|Mar-14-18|| ||piltdown man: Byutiful!|
|Mar-14-18|| ||catlover: <An Englishman: it becomes easy to wonder if ..."Schmidt" is the German language equivalent of NN.> Could be. I'm told that is one of the most common last names in Germany. The Schmidt in this game sure played like the NN we all know and love.|
|Mar-14-18|| ||morfishine: Either this was cleverly composed, (though useful from an instructive point of view), or simply: |
Schmidt plays like S__t
|Mar-14-18|| ||Charlie Cheswick: Nice game! Thank you Sally Simpson for the link and that hilarious comment!|
|Mar-14-18|| ||whiteshark: "Books have given both the BRD and the DDR as the site of this game, and the players' name have been reported as Schmid and Schmidt - and Runau, Rudnau, and Rundau! But they agree that it was played in 1972."|
-- Hugh Edward Myers : Nimzovich's Defence to 1.e4, Caissa Editions, 1985, page 111 (game #32)

Schmidt* with all its homophonic variations is the most common family name in Germany.
*(like Smith in the UK !?)
|Mar-14-18|| ||petemccabe: That is the most puzzle-like finish of an actual game I have ever seen.|
|Mar-14-18|| ||morfishine: Piece of junk, totally composed|
|Mar-14-18|| ||newzild: <<morfishine:> Piece of junk, totally composed>>|
You must be a lot of fun at parties.
|Mar-14-18|| ||RookFile: I love the knight promotion at the end. Best part of the game.|
|Mar-14-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: Knight-time rendezvous with death|
|Mar-15-18|| ||Retireborn: I too would be inclined to query the authenticity of this game, but it's also true that this particular opening has produced some odd-looking finishes in the past;|

And the Mieses-Schenk simul game given in the kibitz here.

|Mar-15-18|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: I don't think this game is NECESSARILY composed. The whole combination depends upon Black never having bothered to advance the e-pawn, but each move he didn't do it seems plausible, especially as he might have been planning a fianchetto instead.|
Allowing d5 without having any decent squares for his knight is also somewhat plausible, as he might have been looking at an eventual ... Nb4.
|Jul-10-18|| ||SpiritedReposte: Yikes!|
|Sep-07-18|| ||Petrosianic: Of course you don't need it on YouTube when you can see it here...|
|Sep-07-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: 7... e6 shows the importancy of square d5|
|Dec-08-18|| ||newzild: Added to my Game Collection: The Best Games You've Never Heard Of|
|Mar-03-19|| ||FSR: <An Englishman> According to Komodo, Black could have achieved complete equality with 6...Qf5! In the game continuation, after 7.d5 (7.Be3 was better), 7...e6! would have equalized.|
I don't subscribe to <morfishine>'s belief that this game was composed. People have played hundreds of billions of games. Inevitably, some of them are going to end in extraordinary finishes. I've only played tens of thousands of games, I suppose, but I've won three of them with O-O-O# and two games by capturing en passant with mate. See Game Collection: En passant mates, Game Collection: Mate by Castling, and https://www.denverchess.com/games/v.... In the last game, my opponent deliberately played ridiculous moves, so I would put an asterisk next to that one.
