More classics to be aware of

 The Reti v Tartakower 1910 game is a well known classic (where Reti sacrifices his queen on d8 to then play a double check), but it did have some predecessors. One such game (which I've only just discovered) was played 46 years earlier, took slightly longer, but ended in pretty much the same way.
