|Oct-23-11|| ||Dr Esenville: Why name this partien - "Sucker Punch"?|
|Nov-09-11|| ||Nightsurfer: Does DÉJÀ VU exist? Some people say yes, some people say no.|
But one thing is beyond any doubt: In the realm of chess there are stunning cases of DÉJÀ VU sometimes!
Just have a look at the finale of this game here <R Reti vs S Tartakower, Vienna 1910> - and then compare it to the finale of a game that has been played no more and no less than 100 years later at Hamburg, Germany in 2010: M Amini vs R Gralla, 2010 ... and there we go, the basic structure of the final phase of the 2nd coming M Amini vs R Gralla, 2010 is - with colours reversed - a replay of this game here <R Reti vs S Tartakower, Vienna 1910>.
A duplicity of events at the distance of 100 years exactly - and even the venue is similar, in both cases it has been a coffee house.
Maybe the Kabbala has got a point!
|Feb-26-12|| ||nezhmet: Koltanowski vs A Dunkelblum, 1923 There, Koltanowski beats a hack with this queen sac motif. But in the Reti-Tartarkower game, this was an incredible loss for a top ten player, even if it was an offhand game.|
|Feb-26-12|| ||King Death: < nezhmet: Koltanowski vs A Dunkelblum, 1923 There, Koltanowski beats a hack with this queen sac motif...>|
In this game Black was 17 and probably not a hack. I'm surprised that you an IM yourself would say something like this.
One more thing, I was a spectator at Lone Pine in 1980 when you didn't score real well and you would've probably been insulted if somebody had been as patronizing to you as you were in this comment. Sure Dunkelblum at 17 played weakly but that doesn't make him a "hack".
|May-15-12|| ||Llawdogg: Queen sacrifice, double check, checkmate!|
|Sep-21-12|| ||vikram2791: After 8.O-O-O!!, Black is gone.
Another variation 10...Ke8 11. Rd8#.
I took three seconds to find that.
|May-28-13|| ||fm avari viraf: I think, Reti had prepared this trap for Tartakower & had to wait for nearly ten years till he butchered him.|
|May-28-13|| ||TheFocus: Reti was born in 1889, so I guess he was about 11 when he thought of this trap?|
|May-28-13|| ||TheFocus: If he waited 10 years to spring the trap, then he was 11 in 1900.|
|Dec-06-13|| ||clownface: If you think like a champion you....|
|Mar-20-14|| ||Makavelli II: Brilliant little game. Annotations from a book :)
GAME NO. 35
White: Reti. Black: Tartakower.
1. P-K4 P-QB3
2. P-Q4 P-Q4
3. Kt-QB3 PxP
4. KtxP Kt-KB3
White wishes to castle as soon as possible on the Queen's side, in order to operate on the Queen's file with the help of the Rook.
5. ... P-K4
Here Black loses two moves in bringing White's centre pawn away. The manoeuvre therefore is not sound. QKt-Q2, KtxKt, and Kt-B3, or any other developing moves would be preferable.
6. PxP Q-R4ch
7. B-Q2 QxP
White prepares a magnificent mating combination, which can only be made possible at such an early stage, when the opponent has utterly neglected his development.
8. ... KtxKt
9. Q-Q8ch!! KxQ
10. B-Kt5 double ch K-B2
11. B-Q8 mate
A beautiful mate. If 11. ... K-K1, 11. R-Q8 mate.
|Mar-20-14|| ||Xeroxx: This game is famous.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||Makavelli II: @Xeroxx. Apparently so :) I've always thought I could solve any mate in 3 if I know that the mate is there but im not so sure here |

|Jun-25-14|| ||sobic: Tartakower should have taken the knight with his queen and the game after 2 moves is equal. But thanks to his mistake we can enjoy over and over again this beautiful queen sacrifice by Mr Reti.|
|Jun-26-14|| ||sobic: My mistake, Tartakower should have never taken that knight, because he loses queen after Re1. That knight was poisoned :)|
|Jun-26-14|| ||Rama: "The mistakes are all there, waiting to be made."|
|Nov-05-14|| ||Christoforus Polacco: One time in my life I played like grandmaster :) It was about 2 years ago.
I was playing against my simply chess program ''Chess Titans''. I like this programme because it isn't possible to place ready chess position and wait for computer's analyse - I must think myself.
I played at seventh level - so, it's about 1650-1700 Elo. And after a few moves my flesh crept and I could feel excitement - I played 5.Qd3 and comp 5....e5. It will be repetition from Vienna 1910 ??
After six moves I was sure ! - it's repetition from chess classic :) It was the only one time when me and my computer we played like grandmasters and both from world's top ten :) Me - like Reti and ''Chess Titans'' like my one of the best liked players : Ksawery Tartakower....
I dont' remember if I mated comp by bishop or by rook :) - it's mixed real game with virtual :) But probably by the rook...
|Jan-08-15|| ||GoldenBird: 8...Nxe4 was the critical error, perhaps Be7 would've saved the day|
|Jan-27-15|| ||TangoJoseph: sobic: Tartakower should have taken the knight with his queen and the game after 2 moves is equal. But thanks to his mistake we can enjoy over and over again this beautiful queen sacrifice by Mr Reti. |
how about niether QxN or Nxn but rather just simple Be7 !
|Aug-18-15|| ||nilanjanasm: There is something wrong in the game. The last moves were ke8, rd8# instead of kc7 bd8#. I saw this in my book|
|Sep-06-15|| ||Phony Benoni: A kibitz from some time ago,
<Oct-05-04 <InspiredByMorphy>: According to the round # this game happened before the first round - 0.44 ! A very similar queen sac and mate is in the following game Maczuski vs Kolisch, 1864>
In fact, "44" was apparently a reference to Chernev's "1000 Best Short Games of Chess", where this appears as game 44. I have deleted it from the round number field.
|Jul-19-16|| ||zanzibar: OK, I'll buy <FSR>'s assertion that this was a skittle's game. |
The question then becomes - where was it (i.e. Reti's Mate) first published?
|Jul-19-16|| ||zanzibar: Edward Winter discusses the game a little here:
Probably the Event tag should be "casual".
|Oct-16-16|| ||Christoforus Polacco: @ TangoJoseph.
It's doesn't matter :) My comp (''Chess Titans') took also the knight by Queen and he lost her .... After simply 9.Re1
|Feb-13-19|| ||Penguincw: 10.Bg5 double check. Gorgeous move. The bishop or rook can be blocked/captured in 13 different ways, but doesn't matter. Double check the king always moves.|
