|Oct-25-03|| ||Benzol: This is another good Hartlaub game but it's a bit more complex than the one against Kahn. |
|Jan-06-05|| ||laskerdog: I love to watch this over and over again. It's amazing how white after 12th. move is hoovering the 6th row, making access for his (d)-rook and the heavy artillery B/Q. Can anyone describe the alternative developement after 13.Rxd6, QxRd6 |
|Nov-25-05|| ||misguidedaggression: 13...♕xd6 14.♘ce4 ♘xe4 15.♘xe4 ♕d8 (the only square that doesn't lose her to a fork or discovery. For example: 15...♕c7 16.♘f6+,17.♘e8+,18.♘xc7) And the hole on f6 is worth more than an exchange.|
|Nov-28-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Wow, this game goes straight into my favorites collection!|
|Nov-28-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: 13.Rxd6! 14.h4! 17.Nd5!! What a great combination.|
|Apr-29-06|| ||jackmandoo: That was stinkin awesome. What a fastball to the face.|
|Feb-16-07|| ||GrandPatzerSCL: What a sweet game. This is an amazing combination!!!!|
|Dec-03-07|| ||Larsker: Thanks for the analysis, <misguidedaggression>|
|Dec-03-07|| ||efrain chavez: 11... g6 weakening the dark squares in front of the king makes the black bishop on d6 "the most wanted". White goes for it right away, with the only setback of the lack of development of its king side pieces. Black "lends a hand" with 14...hxg5.
Finally 17 Nd5! reveals the true power of the white bishop on b2.
A textbook demonstration, and a pretty one too!!, on how to punish a weak castling position.|
|Jan-04-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this guy has an amazing sacrificial style|
|Mar-11-09|| ||WhiteRook48: so drastic|
|Mar-11-09|| ||WhiteRook48: but I don't want to Be Harry!|
|Jul-02-11|| ||birdopening: "Don't Worry Beharry"|
|Jul-03-11|| ||HeMateMe: I've thought a lot about Halle Beharry!|
|Jan-31-13|| ||sorrowstealer: a good candidate for GOTD imho.|
|Sep-05-13|| ||jackmandoo: Dis is cray cray.|
|Sep-06-13|| ||Shams: What a delightful miniature.|
|Aug-03-15|| ||thomastonk: Mieses analysed this game. His game score has 12.. ♕c7, which is however unlikely, because of 13.♘b5.|
After 13.. ♕xd6 Mieses mentioned 14. ♘ce4 ♘xe4 15.♘xe4, and now the queen is forced to retreat to d8, because otherwise it will be lost after ♘f6+ and a suitable discovered check in the next move. After 15.. ♕d8, Mieses assumed that White would equalize by means of 16.♘f6+ and 17.♘d7+. But the famous Hartlaub could have played 16. b5 ♘a5 17.♘f6+
♔h8 18. ♗e2!. Then, Black's king, queen and knight are in trouble.
Interesting is also 17.. ♔g7 18.♕c3 with pretty chances.
14.h4 is unnecessary, probably bad! White is a piece ahead, and can play either knight to e4. 14.. ♕xd6 was necessary, with similar lines as above.
|Aug-03-15|| ||morfishine: The only thing more "amazing" than this game is the nauseating proclivity for patzer kbitzers to overuse the term "amazing". Gawd, just take a look: (1) <laskerdog: I love to watch this over and over again. It's amazing how white after 12th move...> (2) <GrandPatzerSCL: What a sweet game. This is an amazing combination!!!!> (3) <WhiteRook48: this guy has an amazing sacrificial style> |
Enough already, how bout a lil originality in adjectives?
Here are a couple of more "striking" Hartlaub games:
Hartlaub vs Lasker, 1904
Schwartz vs Hartlaub, 1918
|Aug-03-15|| ||perfidious: <morf> When I see such words as 'amazing' and 'iconic', my mind tends to shut them out because they have become overused to the point where they have lost virtually all meaning.|
|Jul-16-17|| ||ughaibu: This one hasn't had the spotlight for a while.|
|Jul-16-17|| ||john barleycorn: Chernev gives as final moves:
18.Rg6+ fg6 19. Qxg6+ Qg7 20.Qxg7++
(18. Qh7 Kh7 19. Rh6 Kg8 20. Rh8# is mentioned in the comment "Or still prettier 18. Qh7 Kh7 19. Rh6 Kg8 20. Rh8 mate")
