Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-24-04  capanegra: Jaques Mieses had been going strong in the Vienna tournament of 1903, which was not surprising, as it was a gambit tournament and he was a venturesome attacking player. This particular day he felt good! He was to play Gunsberg. Not that Gunsberg wasn't a fine player, but the wide-open games resulting from gambits were not his forte, and in addition he seemed to be completely out of form. Out of the previous twelve games, Gunsberg had lost eleven and drawn one. Mieses had already chalked up the point mentally. But, as so often happens, the tail-ender of the tournament had one good game in him. He let loose with everything he had, and Mieses had to capitulate. This has occurred before to many a master, who has had to conceal his real feelings with a "good-loser" smile, but Mieses commented bitterly, "It is bad enough to get run over, but to get run over by a corpse is horrible!" –Irving Chernev.
