<Formidable remate que corona muy dignamente una seria labor posicional a lo largo de toda la partida. La partida fue galardonada con el "Premio de Belleza". Y en verdad que lo merece. Hay en el juego negro, ciertamente, pequeñas inexactitudes,; pero ¡es tan firme y enérgico el aprovechamiento que hace de ellas M. Luckis!>

Jan-11-11  ozmikey: A real underappreciated masterpiece, this one. Glad someone's uploaded it to the database.

I remember, many years ago, finding it in Reuben Fine's anthology of games played during the war and being knocked out by it.

  Check It Out: One of the POTD’s finest efforts. Bravo!
Jan-18-18  areknames: Exciting game! Deserves a wider audience, should be GOTD. Xeroxx's suggestion <Luckis Strike> seems good enough for the pun.
