  Domdaniel: With a Queen check on g3 coming up. Nice one, Mr. Grasser.
Dec-29-10  Dr. Funkenstein: Camejo just dug himself in deeper with Rb8 although his position was bad in any case. Domdaniel spotted the not immediately obvious 21. Rxh7+ Kxh7 22. Qh4+ Kg8/g7 23. Qg3+ picking up the rook. Looks like Camejo realized it too late.

Beautiful double bishop sacrifice though Grasser, we'd all like to have a game at some point where we could pretend to be Lasker and get that in....

Sep-10-12  grasser: It is fitting that I got to play the Lasker vs Bauer Double Bishop Sac, as I was a pupil of Dr. Joseph Platz, who in turn was a personal friend and student of Lasker.

  Benzol: Suggestion for a pun "By George".


Dec-09-12  achieve: What a game! And hungry again for some refreshment at b8 to compensate for the expended energy...
Dec-25-12  grasser: Here is Tarrasch beating Nimzovich with a Double Bishop Sac.

The game is cool, could have been way cooler. I mean, after 20...Qxh4 or 20...Ba6 is White, who has given up a rook and two minor pieces for a queen and two pawns, actually winning? I think it's a minor tragedy that the blunderous 20...Rb8?? prevented us from finding out.
