  Sneaky: Self immolation. Just a simple move like 13...c5 or 13...Bd7 and Black would be winning.
May-19-09  erwinkru71939: Black move 8 Qa5 was a mistake. Better Bd6 and the situation were under controll. It was a suicide.
May-15-10  sneaky pete: If 8 ... Bd6 9.Rxd6 cxd6 10.Nc7+ .. and white wins a minor piece, but he may not be able to keep it.

After 13.Bc4 ..

Diemer's intention was 14.Qe2 .. with 15.Bb3 .. next. 13... c5 and if 14.Qe2 cxb4 is clearly better for black, but not 13... Bd7 14.Rxd7 Nxd7 15.Nc3 Qc6 16.Qxc6 bxc6 17.Bxa6 .. with an unclear position.

Of course the game wouldn't have been saved for posterity had black played one of those moves, so the suicidal 13... c6 was a wise choice.

  dorsnikov: Diemer ended up in a psychiatric hospital for a long period because of his obsession with Chess but he had the "dynamic chess eyes" of a genius.
