Jun-19-04  sneaky pete: Played in round 4, on March 21, 1924. White was winning until he slipped on move 47. The day before some of the masters visited the Bronx Zoo, where Tartakower consulted orang utan Suzan on what to play against Maroczy. She advised him to try 1.b4 which, however, was not a novelty. Alekhine in his tournament book notes calls it "an old move, the chief drawback of which is the fact that white discloses his intentions before knowing those of his opponents". I guess the same can be said about 1.e4

  suenteus po 147: <sneaky pete> What you recommend as an improved continuation for Tartakower's 47th move?
May-26-06  sneaky pete: <suenteus po 147> Alekhine in the tournament book writes: "Correct would have been 47.Be1! .. whereupon the advance of the center pawns would have been decisive: 47... f3 48.d5 exd5+ 49.cxd5 Ne7 50.e6 Kf6 51.Bh4+ Kg6 52.Ke5 Kh5 53.Be1 Kg6 54.Nf7 .. etc. With the text-move the opponent is presented with the tempo he needed for the draw."
