|Mar-12-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: Another nice game of these two players is Maroczy vs Tartakower, 1922 |
|Mar-13-03|| ||Bears092: Why didn't white claim a 3-fold? It's rather obvious that black has the advantage. |
|Feb-28-05|| ||ForeverYoung: I'm going to guess they didn't have the 3 time repetition rule at that time.
Chigorin apparently thought a more worthy game for the first brilliancy prize was Olland vs. Wolf. |

It's been done (and I have a copy). Caissas Editions, a Division of Dale A. Brandreth Books, P.O. Box 151, Yorklyn, DE 19736, if you're interested. I ordered it on Jeremy Silman's website.
|Jun-30-12|| ||keypusher: The Brandreth edition, with notes by Marco corrected by an engine, is well worth looking up. Here are just a few of the might-have-beens:|
34....Qe2!! 35.Qxe2 Ng3+ 36.Kg1 Nxe2+ 37.Kf2 Nxd4 38.Rd1 Rf3+ 39.Ke1 N6f5.
Tartakower could have stayed in the game with 36.Ne6 instead of 36.Nxa6.
Instead of 36....Ne4, Black could have won with 36....Qh5 37.Qf3 Ng3+ 38.Kg1 Ne2+ 39.Kh1 Rf5!
If Tartakower had played 40.Qh4, then Maroczy had 40....Ne2! But White can battle on with 41.Rc8+ Kg7 42.Rc7+ Kh6 43.Kh1 Qxh4+ 44.Nxh4 Rh5 45.Rc5 Rxh4+ 46.Kg2 Nxd4 47.Rxd5 Kg6 48.Nc7 b4 49.Rd6.
If 45.Ng2, then 45...Rg5+ 46.Kxg3 Rg5+ 47.Kh3 Qxg2+ 48.Kh4 Rh5+ 49.Kxh5 Qh3+ 50.Qh4 Qf5+ -- remind you of anything?
|May-12-13|| ||alfilferoz: Hi! I´m looking for a , pdn,pdf or jpg copy of the game Tarkakower-Maroczy, published in Brandreth´s book (with annotations by Marco). Is for my chess club bulletin (I am going to quote properly the book, is fair use).|
If someone is able to help, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
|Feb-07-16|| ||TheFocus: At Carlsbad, Maroczy was awarded the first brilliancy prize of 300 crowns for this game.|
