Mar-31-05  sneaky pete: The date is right but one of the players is not. Havasi, born 1892 in Budapest, played 4th board in the 1928 Olympiad. His opponent in this game was Angel Ribera Arnal, board 5 (first reserve) for Spain.
Feb-22-07  geigermuller: whoaa, look at this attack!
Jan-10-08  somitra: At move 21 for white, this could be an insane sunday puzzle. This guy's attack is just magnificent.
May-04-08  Calli: DBC - This is not Morphy's old friend Arnous. He would be 98 had he lived. According to OlimpBase, the player is William Rivier of Switzerland. See and click Rivier's 16th rd "0" to see this game:
