Nov-27-07  Chesstalesfan: This is the beginning point of a total of 15 games between Tarrash and Teichmann, Rui Lopez being the most frequent opening. But what is in the mind of a chessplayer when is to choose the first moves? When Tarrash opens with 1. e4 Teichmann answers for example 1..e5 or 1..c6. In the later case which happened once ,Teichmann won. He won also a Rui Lopez as black. Could anybody answer to me why Vienna (a very nice opening for me)is nowadays avoided?

Vienna Game is not completely avoided (at least Ivanchuk, Nakamura or Yifan Hou used it recently) but the fact is that it is not seen on the top level much often now. The reason of that is that Vienna is not much pressing and aggressive opening line, which would promise white to achieve any advantage in the opening. On the other hand, with Petroff, Berlin wall, Marshall Attack and other notoriously draw-making stuff in RL it is quite possible that Vienna Game will come back into fashion one day.

  Honza Cervenka: 34...Nf4 with threats 35...Qxc3 36.Qxc3 Ne2+ or 35...e3 was much better than the text continuation, which was good enough anyway. Instead of 20.0-0 white should play rather 21.Nf1 with intention to blockade Pe4 by 22.Ne3.
Oct-26-16  ColdSong: One may notice that recently no less than Kasparov used the Vienna as a blitz weapon.That opening cannot possibly have no avenir,since with a help from the computer one can study deeply this or that middlegame position where the black side will still have to play subtelties better than Carlsen simply in order to survive.Wait and see...
