The "March of the pawnguins"? did you really just say that? ... twice? lol

I second Zibbit's comment, these games are fun to look at. Yeah, maybe short on technique from a modern perspective, but plenty of fireworks and high in entertainment value.

Adam Sandler reference was good, but I think Bob Barker giving him a sucker punch was a bit more appropriate!

Keep up the good work, I enjoy these very much.

I loved this game. Games like this have made me realize that Rudolph Spielman was one of the greatest attacking artists of all time.

I would disagree with the notion similar to "This opponent is such a chump that Spielman sacs two pieces and still lives to win the game." I disliked Teschner's very weak 17.f4+? move. It seemed to me that Spielman would have something stronger in mind, and I liked this idea that I came up with of 17.h6 with 18.g4 so much that I had to plug it into the Fruit engine to see what was up.

Check out this mad line, continuing from the Spassky - Teschner game. White is down 3 pieces and 4 pawns before regaining material and equality. It's funny to watch the computer's evaluation change radically when it gets the point.

Spielman played some suspicious sacs as White, but he often drew if the idea didn't work out.

Thx for the comments. Glad "march of the pawnguins" received its due attention.

Wow, crazy variation. Your idea of h5-h6 also occurred to me, but I didn't look into it too deeply. 18.g4 is a very clever followup that seems to make it work. In the book, Spielmann gave 17.f4+ an exclam in the variation after 16...KxN, so Teschner was probably just relying on Spielmann's annotations.

In a real game, I would not play an f4+ move except for in very concrete situations. I would play 0-0-0 and then let Black spend gobs of time on each move deciding how long to leave it's king in the breeze; maybe Black will forget or overreact. White can calmly open the center, while Black may get rattled by it or act with overconfidence or narrow-mindedness.
