Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-25-08  DoctorD: In Lerne Kombinieren, Mueller posits that, based on a study of 8,000 games played in the first part of the 20th century, 82% were decided by tactical means.

An interesting comment in comparison to Teichmann's dictum, although what each means.....

  GrahamClayton: Mueller was the champion of the IFSB in 1932-33, the predecessor to the ICCF.

  brankat: R.I.P. Master Mueller.


Regarding the "tactics statistics" it would be interesting to compare the numbers to their counterparts of the first part of the 19th century :-)

Probably close to 100% decided via tactical means. Second half of the century considerably less, I'd assume, thanks to Steinitz and his followers.

I'd be interested to know how does the second half of the 20th century stack up.

Also, one has to keep in mind that to try to distinguish between the "tactical" and "positional/strategic" one often has to accept a borderline designation. Namely, it's hard to tell which aspect actually decided the outcome.

As integral parts of viewing and conducting the game, they go hand in hand, to compliment/supplement each other, but are discussed, studied...separately, for the purposes of Methodics.

Fascinating stuff, nonetheless.

Jun-23-09  Sem: Hans Müller was the author of a book on Botvinnik that must have been a joy to Soviet officials at the time, since he bent over backwards to please them.

  GrahamClayton: The second half of this excerpt from a 1936 newsreel shows Mueller giving a 100 board simultaneous exhibition:

Sep-07-12  Karpova: Training Match against Bogoljubov (for his WC match) in 1934: +3 =5 -7

From page 141 of the 1934 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

Oct-10-13  Karpova: Simul in Vienna on January 23, in the chess club "Donaustadt". The event ended after 2 1/2 hours and the score was +15 -1 =6.

From page 29 of the January 1925 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

Oct-17-13  Karpova: Blitz Simul record on October 1, 1925 in the Cafe Hietzingerhof by playing 62 games in 3.5 hours. Result: +49 -6 =7

Source: Page 278 of the September 1925 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

Apr-19-18  Whitehat1963: Mueller will snack on Cohen for a while, flip him like a the wrong side of the piece of toast that he soon will be, then puree and devour Orange Foolius for the main course.

  Jean Defuse: ...

The 1938 Vienna championship began less than 2 months after the 'Anschluss' and was promoted as a National Socialist event. Hans Müller (r.) won ahead of Ernst Grünfeld (l.)
