Mar-05-04  soberknight: A beautiful finish. If h3 to prevent Rxh2+, then...Rxh3 is mate!
Mar-05-04  capanegra: <Soberknight> Nice game. I love the Fritz variation, because it frequently produces exciting battles. Coincidently, I posted today the game Semenenko vs Perfilyev, 1947 in which white plays the dizzy 8.Nxf7.
Mar-05-04  Egghead: Positionally, White's real misstep here is on the queenside, when 14.Na3 lets the black knight into c3. "A knight on the sixth is a nail in the knee."

  Tabanus: What's the occasion of this game? It's not Stockholm 1906.

  FSR: Merry Old Englund.
Jan-09-18  Infohunter: This game was replayed in T Baron vs C Marcelin, 2013, differing only at the very last move, which difference is inconsequential.
Jan-09-18  saturn2: 16 QxQ allowed black to open the h file against the king.
Jan-09-18  morfishine: Englund was 37 years old when this game was played. Its possible this was considered 'old' in 1908, but I seriously doubt it

cute finish

Could have tried <Fritz 18> but I don't think that one would have gotten approved.

Jan-09-18  weisyschwarz: Englund swings like a pendulum do.

  GrahamClayton: 16. ♕xg6 is forced due to the threat of 16...♕xg2#, but the exchange leads a fatal opening of the h-file. 18...♔e7 is one of those quiet moves that sets up the winning tactic, and which White has no defence to.
