Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-13-06  twinlark: This has to be one of the funniest endings to a game. Black invites White to slice him in half with 25.e6, panics, immediately launches an ingenious combination to break out only to find that the only soldier left outside the barricades is the King.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I wonder if this is the same Trinks as in Mayfield vs Trinks, 1959.
Mar-13-06  twinlark: Doubtful, unless he had a pre-frontal lobotomy between 1925 and 1959.

(: ♗ Bishop Berkeley ♗ :)

Mar-13-06  kellmano: I agree with Twinlark- it's an excellent end to the game. I imagine Trinks must have been quite gutted by the point at which he resigned.
Apr-25-09  WhiteRook48: only unprotected black piece is the king (!!)
Jul-03-09  WhiteRook48: after 7...0-0 how many people expect it would look like this after 31 Nf4

  keypusher: Does anyone know whose notes these are?
Nov-28-18  Prelate: Why does the score appear to be incomplete? I can only see up to move 12....
Premium Chessgames Member
  Telemus: <Prelate> Seems to be a technical issue. If you use "view" (after "PGN:") you'll see the remaining moves and the comments.

<keypusher> The two longer comments are similar to two German comments in the tournament book. But there the game has a lot more comments and DSZ, February 1926 is called as the source.

Nov-28-18  rbelous: I'm guessing the PGN is corrupted, it says 13.Bg7 where it should say 13.Bxg7. So I'm guessing it's invalid from that point onwards.

  Tabanus: Fixed I hope.
