@Alain: Yes, I instantly remember that Lasker-Steinitz game.
(Protip for Steinitz: Such shenanigans work against Tarrasch,
who always has to "prove" something, but not against Lasker :-)

@Steffen: Epic, including the comments at
(Of course, Stockfish is extremely unimpressed.)

Another "problemist" recent game by me (Hamburg ch).

1. d4 d5 2. Bf4 Nf6 3. e3 e6 4. c3 Bd6 5. Nf3 O-O 6. Bd3 c5 7. Nbd2 Bxf4 8.
exf4 Qb6 9. Rb1 Nc6 10. dxc5 Qxc5 11. O-O Qd6 12. g3 {Black should play Rd8,
White can't block both freeing moves e5 and d4. But...} 12...e5 13. Nc4 {Neener
neener. Since Bxh7+ would cost the queen, the d-pawn is pinned and the
Pe5 kaput.} 13...Qc7 14. Ncxe5 Bh3 15. Re1 Rfe8 16. Qc2 h6 17. Re2 Re7
18. Rbe1 Rae8 19. Qa4 Nd7 20. Qb5 Ncxe5 21. Nxe5 Nf6 22. Qa4 a6 23. Qd4 Qd6
{Black hasn't learnt, has he?} 24. f3 Bc8 25. g4 Nd7 26. Nc4 {Since it worked
so well the first time...And the next pawn bites the dust, even after
the best moves.} 26...Qf6 27. Qxf6 Rxe2 28. Qxf7+! Kxf7 29. Nd6+ Kf8
30. Rxe2 Rxe2 31. Bxe2 Nb6 32. Nxc8 Nxc8 33. Kf2 Ke7 34. Ke3 Kd6 35. f5 Ke5
36. f4+ Kd6 37. Bf3 Ne7 38. c4
and the d-pawn finally was executed for treason and high stupidity.
