  chancho: This game can be found in Irving Chernev's book: Logical Chess Move by Move.
Jun-06-07  Chicago Chess Man: 14. Bxc6 to win a pawn looks unwise. The absence of the white bishop later spells white's demise.
Jan-05-09  Ulhumbrus: The resource 19...Ne3! suggests that one of the things which a N on d5 and a pawn on f4 can do is to play ...fxg3 and then to answer fxg3 with ...Ne3. The f4 pawn displaces the f2 pawn which defends the point e3, so that the N on d5 can occupy it.
Mar-07-17  mpsweber: What about 16. Qc1?
Mar-07-17  ChessHigherCat: When is a dragon not a drag-on? When it's only 19 moves.
Mar-07-17  Paarhufer: <mpsweber: What about 16. Qc1?> White probably played 16.Qe1 with the idea 16.. Nf6 17.f3 which prevents Ng4. So, 16.Qc1 Nf6.
Mar-12-17  mpsweber: Thanks, Paarhufer!

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Flohr gets revenge for Flohr vs R Pitschak, 1930, in similarly brutal fashion.
