I watched countless games there, and starte couple of threads here, commenting some interesting moments.
Yesterday I played a very first game (*finally) and I won.
But this game, which I am going to show first created oportunity for me to play.
I packed my thing and left the suitcase ad backpack in luggage room,and before my flight to Copenhagen, I had couple of hours for quick lunch and chess on Max Euweplein.
I came when this game was in progress. Sympatico woman played queenless from early stage in the game, and in this position, I and my future opponent disputed over suggestions to the woman, as we both wanted to second her against materially stronger opponent.
White just gave a check and I thought weongly she has to accept perpetual check with ...Bf8, but she played Kd7 and after Qxd4+, she said
"Smart move, man..." and I one more guy tried to help her. She was about to play ...Nd5, because Knght was defended by Bishop on h1.
(*Amazing how Black without queen can hold the position.)
But other guy suggested ...Bd6 in the position on the diagram.
She listend to him and played it.
My vanity was hurt. Then White can take Knight on e3.
"Oh councilors, councilors!" said the woman.
The guy tried to justify himself with variation
1...Bd6 2. Qxe3 Bc5, but I saw White could plaz 3. d4!
And then white took Knight with his King.
An then woman played Kf5++ double check, and no one of us saw it!!
