GAME 32

Speijer - Spielmann

St Petersburg 1909


Queen's Pawn Opening

1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 c5 3.dxc5 e6 4.e4 Bxc5 5.exd5 exd5 6.Bb5 Nc6 7.O-O Nf6 8.Bg5 Be6 9.Nc3 O-O 10.Ne2


White: Speijer; Black: Spielmann

So far White has kept up the pressure on Black's d-pawn, but now he relaxes; he might have gone on, for instance, with 10.Ba4 and 11.Bb3.

10...h6 11.Bh4 Be7 12.c3 Qb6 13.Qa4 Ne4 14.Bxe7 Nxe7 15.Ned4


White: Speijer;Black: Spielmann

5.Bd3 Qxb2 16.Bxe4 dxe4 17.Qxe4 Bd5 18.Qxe7 Rfe8

15...Ng6 16.Qc2 Nf4 17.Rfe1 Rac8 18.Rad1 Bg4 19.Bf1 Qg6

Overlooking the strength of White's next move. If he had played 19...Rfe8 first, he would have retained his advantage. As it is, he accomplishes nothing more than a general exchange.

20.Ne5 Bxd1 21.Nxg6 Bxc2 22.Ne7 Kh7 23.Nxc8 Bd3 24.Ne7 Bxf1 25.Rxf1 Re8 26.Nef5 Nd2 27.Rd1 Nc4 28.b3 Nb2 29.Rb1 Nbd3 30.Ne3 Rc8 31.g3

1/2 - 1/2
