Your pieces should be active, they should be able to swoop over the length and breadth of the board. I can just imagine the Black king playing <44...Kg5> and saying to the bishop: "Be free! Go forth and fulfill your destiny!"

After <59...Bd3>

You know, freedom ain't all it's cracked up to be.

I can believe it. This game has been in the database for less than a month. (I submitted it as part of a collection I'm working on for Munich 1936).

But I wouldn't be surprised at the dearth of comments had it been in the database for years. For all its quality, it's an obscure game by two obscure players. Had you ever seen it before?
