  FSR: Out of Book.
Jul-04-12  DanielBryant: Great game, but 5 lashes with a wet noodle for playing 2.Nf3 against the French.

  Phony Benoni: A pretty short book, ending at move 1.
Apr-09-14  Conrad93: The "Play to Sacrifice Variation" of the French Defense. This reminds me of the game Lasker vs J Bauer, 1889, except without the black queen in the action.

  morfishine: Black forgot to book a flight square
Apr-09-14  pedro99: Does anyone remember this- was the first game in C.H.O.D.Alexander's book on Alekhine's last years

Alekhine vs Book, 1938

Apr-09-14  Poulsen: Black is NOT Aage Ingerslev, but perhaps a somewhat older relative of him. Perhaps Poul Ingerslev - his father?.

The Ingerslev's were a doctors dynasty in northern Jutland (part of Denmark) - from there it is not far to travel by ferry to a tournament held in Gothenburg/Göteborg, Sweden.

Perhaps the game was played during the Nordic Championship that year - won by Gideon Stahlberg.

Can a kibitzer from Sweden verify some of this? A crosstable perhaps?

  kevin86: A quick game- the black king is "rounded up" like a runaway heifer.
Apr-09-14  paramount: Eero Einar Book contains a centerfold.

Ingerslev just awestruck!!

When he realized, everything just too late.

Apr-09-14  sfm: <Poulsen: Black is NOT Aage Ingerslev...> Thanks for that piece of info. I assume AaI is a bit younger.
Apr-09-14  ajile: demolished
Apr-10-14  Poulsen: <sfm> Aage Ingerslev was born in 1933 - 4 years after this game was played. At around that time Poul Ingerslev establised his doctors praxis in the city of Hjørring.

I am - however - only guessing about their relationship - although the surname Ingerslev is unusual - only a few hundred in Denmark has that name.

Apr-10-14  Poulsen: Addition: I have succeded in digging up more info. The young finnish player Book (Böök) indeed participated in the Nordic Championship that year. He played in a subgroup to the championship group. He did not fare well scoring 3/7 in the preliminary - and did not qualify for the finals.

There is no mention of an Ingerslev participating - which leads me to believe, that this is a casual game played during the event.

Apr-10-14  Olavi: According to Böök, this game was played in a café on 22.8., the opponent being Vigge Ingerslev, the secretary of the Danish chessfederation.

  offramp: Thanks <Olavi>¡
Apr-15-14  Poulsen: <Olavi> Great job - thx.

I have not yet been able to confirm Viggo Ingerslev's status as secretary, but never mind that. It's not important.

But it is nice to known for the sake of chesshistory, that this game is a casual game.
