Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-24-07  ColonelCrockett: this is definitely a miniature to learn from. White won the battle because Black voluntarily looked for a superior endgame on move six and then made a blunder on move twelve ... taking the knight was also poor but the real error was Black's twelfth ... leading him down to destruction - taking with the Bishop leads to advantage for Black. Loewenborg produces a fine spectacle of attacking chess ... and a fine example of poor defensive play by Marchand. Bxg7 must have hit Marchand like a lightningbolt. (he would have realized at that moment that he had lost the game several moves earlier).

  coachjay: Black simply walks into mate on the final move. Instead, 24. ... Kd6 leads to a line in which Black gives up the queen for White's rook, but it's still roughly equal. My guess is that the game really continued 22. Qe5+ Kf7 and 23. Qg7#.

  Phony Benoni: <coachjay> It looks like we have a game score typo. According to the American Chess Bulletin, Jul/ August 1919, p. 185, White played <21.Qf4+> instead of 21.Qf5+. That leads to this position after <21...Ke8 22.Rg8+ Ke7 23.Rg7+>

2h3n <23...Ke8> is forced rather than being a blunder.
