Kibitzer's Corner
May-04-04  Poulsen: Erik Andersen was the strongest danish player from early 1920's to late 1930's - winning the Danish Ch 12 - twelve - times!. Still the standing record. I think he died in 1937.

IM Jens Enevoldsen was then considered the strongest danish player until mid-1950's, when Bent Larsen became nr. 1 in DK.

  kevin86: Of course mate is in the offing after:

26...♔xh6 27♗xf6#

May-04-04  Whitehat1963: 24. Ne6! is a great move!
Sep-13-05  Runemaster: 25.Nxg7 is the same move that occurs in Enevoldsen's famous win over Nimzovich in 1933 - a very attractive and effective destruction sacrifice on both occasions.
Aug-24-06  sfm: This is the back-then famous "smoke-game" where Andersen protests and claims that Enevoldsen deliberately blows smoke into his (Andersen's) face. Behind Andersen was a window. When Enevoldsen had moved he went to close the window, when Andersen had moved he opened it again.

Andersen's protest and demand of more time was dismissed.

Jan-11-10  Dravus: In football, there is the 12th man, the fans. In chess and its history, there is the ninth pawn: smoking during a game, an injurious nuisance as dangerous as a passed pawn, where complaining about it is more serious an offense than the smoking itself. Nimzovich complained and had to suffer the bad work conditions (how improved his record would be ...) Botvinnik in practice had smoke blown in his face in order to steel himself to the rigors. Alekhine two weeks before he died was in need of cigarette money.
Jan-16-11  BLarsen1967: It is well-known that Erik Andersen was no fan of opening theory,he really couldnt care less! He just played whatever move appeared natural to him,but with an attitude like that it's no wonder if sometimes he'd get punished. Like in this game,clearly Master Jens had a better understanding of the saemisch nimzo-indian intricacies,he's gradually outplaying Andersen and after 18..b5 Black's position is not something you'd want
