|Oct-02-04|| ||akiba82: At no cost Maroczy accomplishes the undevelopment of Charousek's knight before going ahead with the always intended Bf8. Charousek's position is considerably weakened by having the knight on d1 instead of c3. |
|Apr-08-05|| ||Kangaroo: I like the final move: 26 ... Bc8. It looks like Black is getting ready to play the next game, leaving White no other option but to resign. |
|Jun-01-05|| ||aw1988: What is the point of Bc8?|
|Jun-02-05|| ||Boomie: After Bc8, white has no escape square for the queen after Bxg5. Bc8 is one of the coolest winning moves I've seen.|
|Jun-02-05|| ||aw1988: Lol. Wow.|
|Nov-22-05|| ||aw1988: If there's anything close to resembling a refutation of White's early kingside, erm, excursions in the French, this is it; exchange and generally make freedom for pieces.|
|Apr-06-06|| ||Whitehat1963: How does black reply to 27. g6?|
|Apr-06-06|| ||notsodeepthought: If 27 g6 then probably 27 ... Bg5 28 g:h7+ Kh8 and the queen is trapped (for the fun of it, white might try to continue with 29 Qg6 R:g6 30 h:g6 but I don't see how to make progress after 30 ... Bf6).|
|Apr-06-06|| ||setebos: White moved the queen 9 times in 26 moves. End result: loss of the Queen. Question: Did White have a plan?|
|Apr-06-06|| ||Whitehat1963: Thanks, <notsodeepthought>, I wasn't expecting 28...Kh8. I was looking at everything but that. Still, I would have tried it in the game, you never know, right?|
|Apr-06-06|| ||Whitehat1963: Why is 26...Bc8 necessary? What does it achieve? I would think 26...e4 would be an even better move.|
|Apr-07-06|| ||notsodeepthought: <Still, I would have tried it in the game, you never know, right?> Absolutely, at least until move 30 or so.|
26 ... e4 might retain the advantage but 26 ... Bc8 is required to trap the queen because otherwise, after ... Bg5 (or ... B:g5, depending on what white moves), white's queen could escape by playing Qd6.
|Apr-27-07|| ||the grey sqaures: notsodeepthought: the reason for Bc8 is to make the threat of Bxg5 which would win the queen if black took before Bc8 the queen would escape on Qd6|
|Jan-12-08|| ||aazqua: This game teaches us that any game before 1950 was pretty much a joke. What we can learn from this game is not to look at games from before this time.|
|Mar-24-08|| ||sallom89: too much defense :S|
|Oct-21-08|| ||sleepyirv: What a wonderful final move. You rarely see a "slap in the face" move that isn't a sac.|
|Oct-03-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
Charousek vs Maroczy, 1897.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF MAROCZY.
Your score: 39 (par = 35)
|Nov-12-18|| ||Nosnibor: This game was played at the Nagy-Teteny Quadrangular Event on the 30th December 1897.Charousek won the overall competition finishing half a point ahead of Maroczy. (Source Maroczy`s Dreinhart Schackapartien.)It is not part of the match played in the same year.|
|Nov-13-18|| ||Telemus: <Nosnibor: (Source Maroczy`s Dreinhart Schackapartien.)> What is that? Google translate thinks it's Swedish, but that's wrong I think.|
|Nov-13-18|| ||Nosnibor: <Telemus> I had this book in the 1960`s but no longer hold it.It contained very fine games of Maroczy but I am unable to give you the language. At the time I assumed it was Magyar.|
|Nov-13-18|| ||Telemus: <Nosnibor> Thanks for your reply. The game is contained in Maroczy's "Hundert Schachpartien" (German) with just the information on date and event that you mentioned. |
There are some interesting points about this book that I should report on a suitable page somewhere at cg as soon as I have some time.
|Mar-12-19|| ||Retireborn: <Telemus> I've recently aquired an Olms reprint of that book, which is in German as you point out. This tournament just gets called "Budapest" elsewhere, but my googling suggests that Nagytétény wasn't incorporated into Pest until the 40s.|
I'd be very interested to see your comments on the book.
|Mar-12-19|| ||Nosnibor: <Telemus> The final table of the Nagy-Teteny Quadrangular Tournament 1897/98 is appended:-
Charousek xxxx1010,1111,101d 8.5
Maroczy 0101xxxx10d1 d111 8.0
Exner 0000,01d0xxxx1110 4.5
Havasi 010d,d000,0001xxxx 4.0
|Mar-12-19|| ||Telemus: <Retireborn: I'd be very interested to see your comments on the book.> I think I did not post at that time, so I have to try to remember. Hmmm.|
<Nosnibor> Thanks again. The table coincides with what I see in Charuchin's book on Charousek. Can you confirm that the book you once owned is the German book that <Retireborn> and I own? And otherwise, could you provide more details about it?
|Mar-13-19|| ||Nosnibor: <Telemus> I can confirm that the book I once had was the German edition before the Olms reprint.|
