Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-23-05  sneaky pete: Sidney Norman Bernstein was born in 1911 in the USA, which makes it hard to believe he played this game in 1903 in Berlin.
Nov-06-05  DeepBlade: <sneaky pete>, sneaky as usual.

What is also notable about this game is that Black's Bishop defends the d5 pawn, so the Queen cant take it, but White just goes the other way , by playing the Bishop.

Jan-02-12  King Death: Ossip Bernstein took a law degree at Heidelberg in 1906. Maybe he was White in this game.
Aug-25-12  Karpova: Yes, this could be very likely Ossip Samoilovich Bernstein as I often saw his name shortened to 'S. O. Bernstein' in the 'Wiener Schachzeitung' which could mean that here the O was simply dropped.
