Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-16-09  Hugh the Drover: At move 48, why did White not play Knight takes Rook at d1? This would on its face seem like a win for White (Schlechter), but it's a draw. Does Teichmann's Rb8 give possibilities?

  Phony Benoni: <Hugh the Drover> The score appears to be incorrect. Here is the positions after <46.Kh4>

Obviously <46...Rd1> followed by leaving the rook en prise for several moves, cannot be right."American Chess Bulletin", August 1905, p. 271, has <46...Re1> instead.

There are other problems with the score. Assuming 46...Re8 to be correct this position occurs after <47.Ra5 g6 48.g4 hxg4 49.Kxg4 Nh7 50.h4>:

Here is the fins of the game, according to ACB, beginning with with 46...Re1:

<46...Re1 47.Ra5 g6 48.g4 hxg4 49.Kxg4 Nh7 50.h4 Rb1 51.Kg3 Rb4 52.Ng2 Kg7 53.Nf4 Kh6 54.Ng2 f5 55.Bf3 Rd3 56.Ra6 Rbb3 57.Ne3 Rxe3 58.fxe3 Rxe3 59.h5 Nf8 60.Kf4 Rc3 61.hxg6 Nxg6+ 62.Kxf5 ->
