|Jul-16-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: Erich Cohn was born in 1884. He certainly did not play the game with Tarrasch in 1882. The games from London 1899 were played by Wilhelm Cohn. |
|Nov-22-04|| ||InfinityCircuit: I'm trying to find a mystery game E. Cohn vs. Nimzowitsch. It comes from "My System" and starts in a set position. However, I can't find it in any database online or in Fritz. Does anyone know where it is? I want to get all the moves. |
|Nov-22-04|| ||Chessical: <InfinityCircuit> I know of the following E. Cohn vs. Nimzowitsch games:|
As I do not have a copy of "My System" the respective game lengths were: 65, 20, 29 and 100 according to my source.
|Nov-22-04|| ||sneaky pete: <Chessical> <IC> is questioning about either the Munich 1906 game, in "My system" given from 39.Qe5 .. until the end (65... Kd3) or about an unidentified game (no date/event) starting with 16... Qd7 and lasting over 30 moves. The diagrammed position might have arisen from a Steinitz defence against the Ruy Lopez, with black having played Nf6-g4x(B)e3, leaving white with an isolated doubled pawn after fxe3 ... (theme: doubled pawn and "Hemmung"). AN writes "after ... 31.exf5 .. the win could be forced by 31... Kh8 (etc)", implying that he missed the win.|
I'm afraid this is the mystery game <IC> is looking for.
|Dec-17-07|| ||Karpova: Erich Cohn (1884-1918) was a doctor of medicine.|
|May-20-08|| ||whiteshark: Bio: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erich_... (German)
He died in the western front, <as a field doctor>, at the end of World War I.
|Mar-01-09|| ||brankat: Born 125 years ago, and left us so very much prematurely.|
|Mar-01-10|| ||whiteshark: R.I.P. Schachmeister Cohn
â€ August 28, 1918 (supposably)

|Feb-09-11|| ||BIDMONFA: Erich Cohn|
|Aug-19-11|| ||whiteshark: Edward Winter's C.N. 7213 shows a picture and the booklet dedicated to him.|
<Scarce (many copies were destroyed by the Nazis because Cohn was Jewish). This was a little 18-page booklet dedicated to his memory since he was killed in action for Germany on 28 August 1918 after three years’ service.>
|Aug-23-12|| ||Karpova: The 4-Masters double-round robin Tournament in Berlin in 1909* began November 18.|
1-2. E. Cohn 3.5
1-2. Teichmann 3.5
3. Spielmann 3.0
4. Von Bardeleben 2.0
Cohn and Teichmann shared the combined 1st and 2nd prizes (500 + 300 Mark), Spielmann got 250 Mark and Von Bardeleben 150 Mark.

*Could the date in the Bio be mistaken (1910) as it was reported in 1910 but took place in 1909.
|Mar-01-13|| ||Abdel Irada: The tragedy of this wide-ranging intellect (note the guitar and the shelves filled with books), constrained by ill health and destroyed at the age of 34 by a senseless war, underscores the larger social catastrophe: that it is not our talents, our skills, our hard strivings to advance, even our genius, that determine our fates, but the decisions made in our name and "for our own good" by a tiny cadre of self-appointed aristocrats deaf to the voice of conscience.|
|Mar-01-13|| ||perfidious: <Abdel Irada> For a later example of genius constrained by a petty mind, have a go at this:|
|Mar-01-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <perfidious>: That reminds me of something attributed to Stephen Jay Gould: |
<I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein's brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.>
|Mar-01-13|| ||perfidious: <Abdel Irada> That quote fits, right enough.|
|Feb-15-14|| ||Karpova: 30-board Simul in Berlin on October 9, 1909: +23 -4 =3|

Black (Nimzowitsch) to make his 16th move.
I'm not sure I know what Forsyth notation means, but when I give the position in what I think it is, the thing is turned on this site into this funny picture.
