Mar-08-08  Alphastar: A nice combination. black to play after 8. Be5 is a good puzzle.

Aug-17-09  tayer: Later Torre believed that he had found a salvation for white: 10 Qd2 Qxe5 11 dxe5 gxh2 12 O-O-O! (with decisive attack). But black can play: 11 ... gxf2+! 12 Ke2 Qxd2 13 Kxd2 fxg1:Q

  prn: I don't understand tayer's comment. So what if Black plays 11...gxf2+ ? White doesn't have to just roll over play dead. 12.Qxf2 seems fine to me. (Obviously, I'm not a GM.) For that matter, 12.Kxf2 seems possible too, even though it give up on castling. After simply taking the pawn on f2, white effectively has Q&R for a minor piece with no clear compensation for Black, whose remaining pieces are all still sitting on their original squares.

  whiteshark: <prn> you should read it as <10 ... gxf2+! 11 Ke2 Qxd2 12 Kxd2 fxg1:Q> than it fits. ;)

  prn: OH! I see now. Yes, 10...gxf2 makes a lot more sense than 11...gxf2.

Thanks, whiteshark!

Sep-07-12  andrewjsacks: Well done. Well done.
Sep-07-12  MikeB20: Lovely :)
Sep-07-12  Infohunter: I've never seen this game before, but the winning idea is somewhat reminiscent of Schlechter vs J Perlis, 1911, colors reversed.
Sep-07-12  newzild: A cute win. The decisive mistake was 7. Bxf6. White should have played N3e2, with only an edge for Black.

It's ironic, but this is the game I remember from many years ago, not the one you cite-only recently on CG have I seen Schlechter-Perlis.

Sep-07-12  hugogomes: prn?? After 11... gxf2+, 12.Kxf2 Qxd2 loses the queen. 12. Ke2 is the line he gave, Qxd2, Kxd2, and fxg1=Q. The line you suggest, Qxf2 is impossible because the queen is pinned.

  kevin86: I've seen this one from a long time ago. Black sacrifices queen to gain a new one with interest.

  tpstar: "With this drastic and impressive example of the dynamic values of Pawn promotion, we conclude this section. One important facet of the Pawn's promotional powers is the realization that the Pawn cannot be treated with contempt. Every Pawn is a potential Queen. The win of a Pawn carries with it the promise that the player who has obtained the material advantage may very likely be able to acquire another Queen."

Al Horowitz and Fred Reinfeld, "First Book of Chess." Sterling Publishing CO, New York, 1952.

Feb-05-20  Knightcarver: Based on vital statistics in Gaige's "Chess Biobibliography," it was most likely Karsten Schuster, but not the same Karsten Schuster playing today. I have seen this game credited to "Theo Schuster," but he was only 2 years old at that time.
