GM\Andor Lilienthal Chess Masterpiece !

GM\Lilienthal was one of the few players with an even record against World Chess Champion GM\Capablanca. GM\Lilienthal's " celebrated victory" is his win against GM\Capablanca at Hastings 1934–35.The game was a Nimzo-Indian Defense: Saemisch Variation. Accelerated (E24)
The diagram on the right shows the position after GM\Capablanca's 19... Qxe4 ? white played 20.exf6! Qxc2 21.fxg7 Rg8 22.Nd4 Qe4 23.Rae1 Nc5 24.Rxe4+ Nxe4 25.Re1 Rxg7 26.Rxe4+ Kd7 (1–0) Seeing that 27.Re7+ Kd6 28.f6 and 29.Bg3+ wins, Capablanca resigned. This game is very famous. GM\Lilienthal relates, "wherever I went on an exhibition tour, both in the Soviet Union and elsewhere, chess players and fans always asked me to show them how I sacrificed the queen against the great Cuban. When World Chess Champion\ Bobby Fischer noticed GM\ Lilienthal in the audience at his 1992 return match against GM\Boris Spassky.GM\Fischer greeted him with the remark "Pawn e5 takes f6."
