White does a lot better here if he avoids 4.Qe2 and sticks with the main line of 4.d3 Nf6 5.de Ne4 6.Nf3 Bc5 7.Qe2.

|Jan-12-12|| ||Oceanlake: 4.Qe2 Let's try this just to be different.|
|Jan-12-12|| ||sevenseaman: Gripping tension, all the way. I've never seen more pieces en prise in a game. Charousek leaves a lasting impression that he could create a work of art at will.|
This game shows you cannot place a limit on the profundity of chess. Of it I know a miniscule little but I feel proud, perhaps my best trophy.
"Maroczy Bound" is so apt. Aren't both of them Czechs?
|Jan-12-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Charousek!! In this game, all I can say about him is "What a beast!!"|
|Jan-12-12|| ||Gypsy: <Aren't both of them Czechs?>
(Charousek was born in Prague however.)

Charousek is a very strong player ....
|Jan-12-12|| ||eSpade: Thanks to CG.com for choosing my pun for this game, and also to the masters for creating such a masterpiece :)|
|Jan-12-12|| ||BlackSheep: Sublime play there by Charousek , shame he had such an early exit at 27.|

|Jan-12-12|| ||Penguincw: Well, Maroczy wasn't that old at the time, was he?|
|Jan-12-12|| ||ciberchess: Maroczy was 26 years old at that time, he was not a child.|
|Jan-12-12|| ||kevin86: Strange,but by the end of the game,Maroczy position looks like he made about ten less moves than Charousek-kind of like LSU vs Alabama last Monday.|
|Jan-12-12|| ||Llawdogg: Holy Crap! That took some nerve.|
|Jan-12-12|| ||thendcomes: Poor play by Maroczy diminishes this game, IMO.
<Coolin> mentioned that four pieces are left en prise after 18...Bb4. I count only two - the Bishops on a4 and b4. The pinned c3 Pawn and d3 Bishop cannot move, so Black's Queen and e4 Rook are not en prise.

|Jan-12-12|| ||TheoNov: These two, esp Charousek, sure did love fireworks! Check this earlier encounter: Charousek vs Maroczy, 1893|
|Jan-13-12|| ||Rob Lob Law: is 19. cxb4 ok to play? I realize the queen can take the rook on a1 but then the b pawn can take the a4 bishop. Is white ok there?|
|Jan-13-12|| ||Shams: <Rob Lob Law> It's like you're willing to hold chess notation by the hand, but not kiss it. :)|
19.cxb4 Re3 20.Qf1 Bb5 looks good for Black, same problem as in the game. You are correct that White is fine on 19...Qxa1?
|Jan-13-12|| ||Rob Lob Law: <Shams> I just dont want to move to fast with chess notation... :P|
Yeah i missed Re3 because i thought bxa4 would compensate for the loss of queen (2 bishops and the rook for a queen and eventually 2 pawns). Now i see that 19 cxb4 Re3 bxa4 Qxd4 is mate. What a wicked position!
Would white really be ok if 19 cxb4 Qxa1? The position seems unclear to me, and although white is up material after 20 bxa4, I think black might still have a slight edge due to the exposed king and scattered white pawns.
|Jan-14-12|| ||Shams: <Rob> 19...Qxa1? 20.Bxe4 |
|Jul-09-17|| ||Marcelo Bruno: <Coolin> Not only they are en prise, but also Black has a pawn minus: a remarkable example of tactical hability with combinative and positional play, all mixed together. I saw this game today in Youtube.|
|Jul-10-17|| ||tamar: this game is bound for glory, this game|
