Dec-10-06  McCool: First kibitz on such an entertaining game!
Position after 11...Nc6

12. g6! fxg6
13.fxg6 h6

At this point black may have congratulated himself on escaping with a whole skin - until he saw white's next move 14.Rxh6!! <If 14...gxh6; 15. g7, Rf8; 16. Bxh6 and wins>

There is an art of evolving complications from apparently colourless positions. Spielmann was a great master of this attractive art.

Mar-25-10  Xeroxx: <First kibitz on such an entertaining game! > And still is.
Feb-02-14  Naniwazu: <McCool> It would be better if you gave credit to a source you've used, rather than pretending what you wrote came from your own mind. What you said is almost identical word for word to what Fred Reinfeld wrote in his book 'Great Short Games of the Chess Masters' (Collier Books, 1961).

On another note doesn't 6...Nf2 win immediately for Black?

Feb-02-14  oxxo: <Naniwazu> Actually no, it doesn't:

6... Nf2 7. Qh5 Qe7 (g6 8. Qh6 Nxh1 9. Bg5 f6 10. fxg6) 8. Bg5 Qf6 9. Nd5

Feb-02-14  oxxo: Qf6 should have read Qf8 sorry

Feb-09-18  Granny O Doul: It is nice though that Fred Reinfeld is able to kibitz from beyond the grave. I hope Spielmann isn't too shy to give his input.
