Sep-27-04  Leviathan: A game full of fireworks, ended by a nice windmill.
Mar-26-06  crptone: Really wild game!! I like the black knight in the final position :)
Dec-13-09  siegbert: what does white reply to 31 ne1? i thought this technique was often called a seesaw. the ending of this game featured in dec 2009 chess with the odd comment "with white going on to deliver mate on move 55" chess monthly dec 09 page 46. if score on chessgames is correct this is plain wrong.
Dec-13-09  siegbert: i see it clearly now. the knight can escape (ne1) but this does not matter. black is down heavily anyway materially and can resign with a clear conscience.

  Korora: A ♘ vs. five ♙'s. Helloooo, King Solomon.
Jan-06-23  goodevans: I'm assuming the pun is based on the German 'Springer' = 'Knight'. The two knights between them certainly cleaned up a lot.

Looks at first sight more like a blitz game than correspondence, but quite fun all the same.

Jan-06-23  Morphy number 4: Actually 'Ritter' also means 'knight'.
Jan-06-23  lentil: Drawing on my experience with correspondence chess, everything from 24. ... hg to 31 Rd4 was a series of 'if' moves. What stuns me most is that the game continued until move 55! ("/55" at the end)

  beatgiant: In the final position, I don't think it's really true the knight can escape via e1 as <siegbert> claimed above. No matter which way it springs from there, it will soon get trapped.
