  TheAlchemist: Only B Kazic vs B Vukovic, 1940 has been praised so far, but here's the (probable) original, if only slightly different, but with the same motif.
Jul-12-05  fgh: I remember seeing this game in one book on tactics. It's a very nice combination, in my opinion.
Feb-23-06  Mating Net: I just discovered this game, and what a find! After 13...Ne5 White realizes that Black has a stalemated King. All he has to do is give check on f6 and it's 1-0, LOL. White orchestrates a Knight double team on f6, via a Queen sac that is a thing of beauty. Well done.
Apr-25-06  dakgootje: Nice game, but why not Be6?
Jan-05-07  WarmasterKron: <dakgootje> Nowadays, 8...Be6 is the standard move and certainly much less risky for Black. However, ...Kf8!? is by no means losing, but requires care.

There seem to be numerous inaccuracies here, according to CN. 4793, including move order and the name of the White player.

Sep-13-07  Ryan Razo: 12... ♗f8 would have been better.

Also, Fred Reinfeld gave 14 ♘xe5 and 15 ♘d7 three exclamation marks.

<WarmasterKron> <There seem to be numerous inaccuracies here...including move order...> Indeed. One book (Fred Reinfeld's <How to Win Chess Games Quickly>) has it as: 1 e4 e5 2 ♘f3 ♘f6 3 ♗c4 ♗c5 4 O-O ♘f6 5 d4 exd4 6 e5 and so on...

Sep-17-09  WhiteRook48: Black is immediately lost after 14 Nxe5
May-27-13  My Face: 14...Be6 is met by 15.Qg4+! Bxg4 16.Nxg4 followed by mate at f6
