  Phony Benoni: At the time of this game, Hempel was a month short of her sixth birthday.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: And good heavens--she was only 6?!
Oct-18-10  rilkefan: "a month short of her sixth birthday"

Is this an example of at it were normal extreme prodigy performance? How much of the above game is theory?

Oct-18-10  RandomVisitor: 14.Bb3 might retain a small white advantage.

  Once: Humbling. She was only 5 at the time? Heck, it sounds like the name of the opening was bigger than she was!

"Italian Game: Two Knights Defense. Traxler Counterattack King March line"

An interesting parallel to today's POTD - Euwe vs Loman, 1923 - where again (relative) youth triumphed over experience.

  Nightsurfer: SHOCK and AWE!! A kid that young - and then she has smashed poor Dietrich that way ... can't imagine how that guy has felt after that bashing ...!! ... :-( ... Conclusion: Beware of the jailbaits ... :-) ...

  FSR: What does "Exhibition" mean? Was this a simultaneous exhibition? If so, who was giving it? (Traditionally, the exhibitor (exhibitionist?) plays Black.) Or an exhibition like a living chess game or something like that - in which case the moves of the game could well have been prearranged? Note that Black, the following year, supposedly lost a correspondence game in 6 moves (all book) playing Damiano's Defense. Pritchard vs J Hempel, 1967 Something does not compute.

  kevin86: Black attacks,white attacks better,black attacks best!
Oct-18-10  Eduardo Bermudez: Killer instinct at six years old !!
Oct-18-10  Naugh: Nice game for sure. White made some very strange moves kind of "hoping" for a promising attack.
Oct-18-10  redorc19: usually after 4. Ng5 white gets and active aggressive game against the Black king. Black successfully switched the roles in this game!!!
Oct-18-10  redorc19: wait... she was 6!!??? What in the world!!!!!!!!!

  FSR: Unfortunate error in my comment from 10 years ago: <(Traditionally, the exhibitor (exhibitionist?) plays Black.)> Of course, I meant <White>.
