Coup Springer - the intended capture is f4-d4-d6-d8-f8-f6x

The position is from a game against Molimard at the 1928 Olympic tournament in Amsterdam, which Springer won. In the depicted position it is Molimard's move. He puts himself in a predicament by playing 1...cd4 2.d35x-cd6, with the inevitable breakthrough e62x.
Springer had anticipated this attack and comes out two men up! Characteristic is black's breakthrough e62x, a man that eventually is forced back to e4. White won.
