Aug-22-07  tak gambit: Move 29 is a surprising move. 2 pieces hanging both which cant be captured.
Nov-29-10  acme: Am quoting <capanegra> from the Heinrich Wolf vs Akiba Rubinstein game, 1907:

Kmoch and Reinfeld tell that in the Leipzig tournament of 1888, Schottländer had refused Mieses’ offer of a draw in identical circumstances, eventually losing the game –and the first price!

  Pawn and Two: <acme> In his book, "Three Hundred Chess Games" Tarrasch stated that it was Riemann who turned down Mieses's draw offer at Leipzig 1888, and in losing this game, he had to share first place with von Bardeleben.

In the above game, Mieses vs Schottlaender, Black missed (-.35) (21 ply) 12...fxe5! 13.Bxe4 Nxd4 14.Qxd4 Bxh3.

Black then played 15...Rb8? instead of: (.70) (20 ply) 15...d5 16.f5 c6, and 17...Nd7?, instead of (-1.05) (20 ply) 17...d5 18.Bc3 Bf7.

Black had missed chances to play d5 at moves 15 and 17, however, White also missed: (1.67) (20 ply) 19.Bc3! Nc5 20.Qd2, or (1.56) (20 ply) 18.Rae1 Bf7 19.Bc3, with a very strong position for White.

After 18.Qg3?, Black's best chance of survival was: (1.21) (20 ply) 18...Qe7 19.f5 Bc4. Instead, Black incorrectly played 18...d5?, and after: (2.40) (20 ply)19.f5 Bf7 20.g5, he was clearly losing.

Tarrasch stated that Leipzig 1888 was held to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the famous chess society, "Augustea".

At Leipzig 1888, Riemann (+5-1=1) and von Bardeleben (+4=3) finished in a tie for first, with 5 1/2 points in 7 games.

Mieses finished in 3rd place with 4 1/2 points (+4-2=1), von Scheve scored 4 points, Schottlaender and W. Paulsen scored 2 1/2 points, while Tarrasch scored 2 points (+2-5), and Minckwitz 1 1/2 points.

Reinfeld, in "Tarrasch's Best Games of Chess", stated that Tarrasch finished last at Leipzig 1888, with 2 points. Chessmetrics showed Tarrasch finishing 7th, with 2 points.
