|Feb-19-09|| ||Jim Bartle: By 3 o'clock this afternoon.|
|Feb-19-09|| ||keypusher: <chancho>
Hard to believe! It seems like the picture could be either for Hastings 1895 or Nuremburg 1896, since they had similar lineups, but since there are only 18 people pictured I am guessing Nuremberg. Probably the worst tournament of Teichmann's life.
Who is the hulk next to Blackburne? Marco?
Lasker and Tarrasch look like they are wearing tinted glasses for some reason.
|Feb-19-09|| ||chancho: <keypusher> The pic is from Hastings 1895. And yes, that's Marco next to Blackburne.|
|Feb-19-09|| ||keypusher: thanks, <Chancho>. here's who I know, more or less:|
Back row: Albin, Schlechter, ?, Marco, Blackburne, __, Schiffers?, ___, Burn, ___(Bird?)
Front row: ___ (Vergani?), Steinitz, Chigorin, Lasker, Pillsbury, Tarrasch, Mieses, Teichmann (though obviously never would have guessed him before you posted his name).
I looked on <Calli>'s picasa site, but couldn't find tournament pictures.
|Feb-19-09|| ||chancho: <Keypusher> The guy standing to Blackburne's left is Geza Maroczy who played in the minor tournament.|
|Feb-19-09|| ||Benzol: There seems to be some confusion regarding the players in the photo.
It was indeed from Hastings 1895.
Back row (standing) left to right : Albin, Schlechter, Janowski, Marco, Blackburne, Maroczy, Schiffers, Gunsberg, Burn and Tinsley.
Front row (seated) left to right :
Vergani, Steinitz, Chigorin, Lasker, Pillsbury, Tarrasch, Mieses and Teichmann.
|Feb-19-09|| ||whiteshark: The guy standing to Burns's right is Isidor Gunsberg|
|Feb-19-09|| ||chancho: Thanks <Benzol>.|
|Feb-19-09|| ||Benzol: <chancho> You're right about Maroczy.|
Perhaps I should also have mentioned those players from the tournament who for some reason are not in the photo.
They were : von Bardeleben, Walbrodt, Bird, Mason and Pollock.
|Feb-19-09|| ||whiteshark: Back row: David Janowski is standing between <Schlechter> and <Marco>.|
|Feb-19-09|| ||chancho: There's this game from the minor tournament that Maroczy won:|
Owen vs Maroczy, 1895
|Feb-19-09|| ||whiteshark: Dooh, I only switched between the picture and keypusher's whitespaces, w/o noticing that Benzol's already posted the complete list.|
|Feb-19-09|| ||chancho: Still appreciate the effort <whiteshark>|
|Feb-20-09|| ||keypusher: <Benzol> <whiteshark> Thanks to you too! I thought that looked like Maroczy but since he didn't play in the main tourney I didn't think he would be in the picture. I guess the photo was taken after the tournament was over?|
Janowski certainly upgraded his appearance and bearing in subsequent years.
It's nice to have a face to put with Tinsley, who I am fond of.
Gunsberg was tiny!
|Sep-09-09|| ||Marcelo Brasileiro: Would like anyone to have the whole game that he played against Capablanca (Berlin 1913) commented by Capa? The interested ones please send to me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject "Capablanca-Teichmann, Berlin 1913)": I have these comments with the whole game in Idel Becker's "Manual de Xadrez" (Chess Manual).|
|Dec-24-09|| ||BIDMONFA: Richard Teichmann|
|Dec-24-09|| ||fred lennox: master of the sweeping, cut and thrust kind of playing.|
|Dec-01-10|| ||Marcelo Bruno: Very curious a small detail: how could be called a tournament as "Memorial Emanuel Lasker", that contains Teichmann's last known game, remembering that Lasker only died the 11th January 1941?|
|Dec-28-10|| ||Marcelo Bruno: Which was his eye desease?|

@ <Dec-01-10 Marcelo Bruno> Teichmann vs Mieses, 1925
A: bad pgn code
One of the last tournaments of the year was a small double-round, four-man event in Berlin on 9-17 December , unexpectedly won by Paul F Johner of Switzerland ahead of Rubinstein, Teichmann and Mieses. (It was the final tournament of Teichmann’s career, and he died about six months later.)
e.g. see http://www.365chess.com/view_game.p...
PS: why exactly he had to withdraw at London 1899 is beyond reach ATM.
|Dec-24-11|| ||Penguincw: < He returned to tournament play in 1902 and won so many fifth prizes up to 1910 that he earned the nickname "Richard the Fifth". >|
Interesting. Richard the Fifth.
|Mar-18-12|| ||Karpova: C.N. 7557 reproduces an article found by Gene Gnandt (Houston, TX, USA) written by Capablanca on Dr. Lasker, Tarrasch and Teichmann (page 9 of the 'Evening Post' (New York), 22 July 1916).|
Jose Raul Capablanca: <Richard Teichmann is a player who combines the qualities of both Lasker and Tarrasch. Like Lasker, Teichmann has Bohemian tendencies. He is an accomplished linguist; cannot extend himself to his best effort unless his whiskey and soda are at close call; and is clever at all games of cards and billiards. Work is no virtue with him, despite his massive bulk. As soon as his money is gone, he sets about to play chess.>
|Aug-19-12|| ||Karpova: Dr. Emanuel Lasker: <Er ist ein gebildeter Mensch, der solche Dinge wie Alt-Französisch und Alt-Englisch und dabei ein halbes Dutzend moderner Sprachen kennt, mit dem sich vortrefflich über Philosophie und anderes disputiren läßt, der aber bei alledem etwas bäuerlich Derbes hat.>|
From pages 299-300 of the 1911 'Wiener Schachzeitung'
(he is an educated man who knows things like old french and anglo-saxon and half a dozen modern languages, with whom you can discuss philosophy and other topics excellently though there remains something rural earthy about him)
|Aug-21-12|| ||Karpova: Teichmann won a small double-round robin tournament held in Munich in early February, 1909:|
1. Teichmann 4.5
2. Alapin 3.5
3. Spielmann 2.5
4. Przepiorka 1.5
Teichmann scored +4 -1 =1
From page 178 of the 1909 'Wiener Schachzeitung'
|Aug-23-12|| ||Karpova: The match against Curt von Bardeleben that's mentioned in the bio ended 4.0-2.0 for Teichmann and took place from 1909.11.11 to 1909.11.18 in Berlin.|
The 10-games revenge match between Teichmann and Von Bardeleben in Berlin at the Cafe Kerkau ended +5 =4 -3 in Teichmann's favor.
