|Jul-30-04|| ||nikolaas: Tarrasch said about this game: “I carelessly played a little known line from Bilguer. My opponent, instead of making the weak reply according to theory, immediately found a much better one and reached an advantageous position. Thus I lost a game due to my good memory and the bad one of my opponent!” |
|Jul-30-04|| ||mjk: And that weak move would be? |
|Jul-30-04|| ||nikolaas: <mjk> Still according to Tarrasch, it would be 14.Qxe8. |
|Oct-11-04|| ||tamar: Albin replied in a letter to Wiener Schachzeitung in 1908 (quoted from Skittles Room on chesscafe) "My whole audacity - that to win against the invincible – consisted in the fact that I did not follow the same chess habits as many did against Tarrasch, but I chose to follow my own path into a variation which was regarded as wrong by theory. Here is the game which generated so much emotion and interest in the world of chess. I am asking now: where is the luck in this perfectly played game? It is possible that Mr Tarrasch – so much used to relying on complete analysis – became a bit jumpy because of my independence, but his game was lost after Qa4-Qd1." |
|Oct-13-04|| ||Lawrence: Rather than Tarrasch's 13.....Qe8, Junior 8 suggest 13.....Qb6 (eval. -0.70). In any case, T.'s 14.....Ng5 was also poor, J8 finds 14.....Bf5.|
Nothing perfect about Albin's game: 21.Qd2 or 21.Rxf4 would have been much stronger than what he played.
|Apr-18-10|| ||ballroomblitz: "to Lawrence" hey man, what about respect for this great victory of unknown Albin against Tarrasch? Please check this game again (now we are in 2010), meanwhile, perhaps you are a little wiser ...|
|May-03-17|| ||Straclonoor: <this great victory of unknown Albin>
Adolf Albin was inventor of Albin's countergambit (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e5)
This game was one of the first examples in chess history, how to research, use and object deep opening developments.
After Albin's novelty game is totally usual with mistakes on both sides|
