Feb-20-12  waustad: I don't recall seeing this one before when looking at Diemer's games. I guess you could call that one of my occasional guilty pleasures.
Jun-14-12  e4 resigns: Diemer had a super tactical eye.
Who annotated this?
Jun-15-12  Calli: <waustad> Black is "J. Diemer" in the Skinner book. The source being the Deutsche Schachzeitung (1935). It's probably not Emil.

Jun-20-12  Calli: <whiteshark> Thanks for the link! Apparently Skinner, Verhoeven or one of their researchers failed to copy the score from the Deutsche Schachzeitung properly.
