Another Uncastled King Bites the Dust
Charousek punishes an opponent who fails to castle in this game at the turn of the 20th century. Schiffers' 11. Qd2?! was not the best; it shuts off the retreat of the Queens Bishop. However, his failure to castle on move 12 was his losing move and spoiled what had looked like a promising position. Charousek was one of the top attackers of that era and failing to castle against a player of his caliber was equivalent to suicide.
