Oct-17-05  AlexanderMorphy: What a great game by Diemer! this gambit of his is strange but pays off!
Oct-17-05  Happypuppet: The rook sac with 13. h5 confuses me. I can't see White's continuation after 14... hxg6. Is it 15. Nxg6? Obviously the knight can't be taken, since that leads to the forced mate seen in the game. So... maybe 15... Re8 16. Bc4 e6 and Black looks ok.

All this was unassisted mental analysis, so please don't be too harsh on me if I overlooked something... >_>

Oct-18-05  AlexanderMorphy: <happypuppet> well Diemer's whole idea was to allow black to gobble up all the material while he got through blacks defenses and eventually force mate! It really was a beatiful combination! that h5 is a simple yet great move which opens up black defense after black accepts the rook sacrifice! Diemer saw the winning combination and we can say he played it to perfection!
Oct-19-05  Happypuppet: <allow black to gobble up all the material while he got through blacks defenses and eventually force mate!> I was kind of looking for a line of analysis in response to 14... hxg6 that shows this...

<I can't see White's continuation after 14... hxg6.> How about 14...hxg6 15. Rxh1 Qd6 16. Qh4 Rd8 17. Bc4 Qxd4 18. Bxf7+ Kf8 19. Qh7, which looks crushing.
Feb-04-07  FreeRepublic: After 14...hxg6 15. Rxh1 Qd6 16. Qh4 Rd8 17. Bc4, black could try 17...e6. After 18. Qh7+ Kf8 19.Nxg6+, or 19. Rf1, it looks like white still has a strong attack.

Another good try is 16. Bc4 (attacking f7) ...e6 (appears forced) 17. Ne4 Qe7 (...Qxd4? 18. Nf6+ Bxf6 19. Qxf6 wins) 18. Ng5 (18Qh2 is good too) Nd7 19. Nxd7 Qxd7 20. Qh4 Rd8 21. Rf1.

I think Diemer would have been happy to play another game that diverged with 14...hxg6.

In the game, I think black could have lasted a little longer with 15...Bd5, but still loses.
