Saemisch in Consultation Games 1927 - The Sunday Times Perth

The Sunday Times, Perth
16 January 1927
Chess and Draught was a chess column from Western Australian, The Sunday Times Perth newspaper. A draughts column was added as 'co-column'.

Consultation Game between:
F. Saemisch, Lottge, and Warneke) vs Gunter, F. Schubert, Wanschafte, and Dr. Schott)
King's Gambit Accepted: Muzio Gambit, 1-0 Hanover 1927 (?)

Very interesting recorded consultation game played in Hanover congress, probably the same year as the chess column issued (1927). Although type as F. Samisch, I think it was Friedrich Saemisch and it was Frantisek Schubert in the black camp. The game was pretty amazing, a Muzio Gambit played in consultation mode and involved several sacrifices. Unfortunately the end was pretty blunderous as well. See in the game viewer below:

White to play and mate in two moves. Composed by Pieter. ten Cate, first prize in the Second International Two-move Tourney of the "Grantham Journal". Interestingly the column challenge the reader to question how the position can arise from legal moves. A book was offered as a prize for whom can give the legal moves leading to the chess problem by Pieter ten Cate.
