  Honza Cervenka: This lovely miniature was not played in Prague, but in a tournament in Mlada Boleslav. I have found several games from that event and submitted them to the database. Opocensky's opponent was Josef Hrdina.
Feb-07-15  apexin: The final position looks quite unique. I have never seen something like that in any other game.
Feb-07-19  jith1207: I have never seen a Knight, or any piece for that matter, being insulted in Chess board like this. Black Knight makes so many threats to so many pieces, even captures a piece and still not taken and the game ends with it making another capture, all in vain. Perhaps the irony is that Black moved the Knight so much making stingless attacks that White's plan sailed so smoothly and elegantly.
Feb-07-19  bachiller: 19. White to move is an interesting puzzle, IMO.
Feb-07-19  ndg2: Double fawn pawn. Rare!
