|Oct-16-05|| ||Knight13: Sicilian, Richter-Rauzer (B60). Named after him. Not a bad opening.|
|Jul-03-07|| ||Chess Carnival: From Mark Taimanov's 'Winning with the Sicilian':
<"Rauzer was obsessive as an analyst and his creative fantasy prompted him into surprising discoveries. He believed, from a subjectively paradoxical argument, that the advantage of the first move should wield a tangible advantage with an energetic treatment of the opening. It would seem that Rauzer wanted to demonstrate that in the initial chess position, as in a study, one could formulate the task - 'White to play and win!'"> (page 7)
|Jul-03-07|| ||Open Defence: he is also credited as the originator of the Rauzer Attack.. more commonly called the Yugoslav Attack now...|
|May-14-08|| ||eremite: He has contributed to the theory of various openings and endgames (B+P in particular). There will be a centenary since his birth this October. Some memorial articles or/and tournaments (thematic?) might follow|
|Oct-16-08|| ||brankat: Born a hundred years ago today!
Unfortunately, Mater Rauzer died quite young, otherwise he would have certainly made even more contributions to the game.

|Oct-16-09|| ||WhiteRook48: did Richter know Rauzer?|
|Sep-14-10|| ||rapidcitychess: My favorite quote from Mr.Rauzer
<1.e4! and White wins!>
Bronstein in Zurich 1953 tournament book was glad he did so, for he said <He[Rauzer]gifted us with many attacking systems in the Ruy Lopez, Sicilian,French, and Caro Kann!>
I know little of these. Could someone point these out?
|Oct-16-12|| ||rapidcitychess: Someday we will finally find the end of chess. And 1.e4 will probably be the winning line for white. |
So much for draw death...
|Oct-16-12|| ||Cibator: <Chess Carnival: (quoting Taimanov) It would seem that Rauzer wanted to demonstrate that in the initial chess position, as in a study, one could formulate the task - 'White to play and win!'>|
Perhaps he should have got together with Weaver Adams. If he'd ended up in the States, and lived long enough, he'd doubtless have acquired the nickname "Rebel".
|Oct-16-12|| ||TheFocus: If he had been T. Rauzer, I am sure his nickname would have been Trousers.|
Just a thought.
|Aug-14-13|| ||DoctorD: He was a lothario who knew every trick in the book, but somehow he failed to a rauzer.|
|Oct-16-15|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: So he thought his variation of the Sicilian would give White the Rauzer's Edge?|
|Oct-16-15|| ||eternaloptimist: <An Englishman> Good Evening: That's a nice pun! |
Rauzer was a strong player & it's a shame that he died at such a young age b/c he could've played a lot more brilliancies if he would've lived longer. Although CG's database doesn't have a single game of his where he played the white side of the Richter-Rauzer variation of the Sicilian. Although I've heard that he did introduce the plan of ♕d2 & 0-0-0 in this variation. Richter did actually play this variation however. It isn't as popular as it used to be but it's still relevant even today. The "scalps" of GM Korobov & GM Popov were taken this year! white wins in the Richter-Rauzer variation in the CG database this year.:
Although actually the 1st game in CG's database wasn't played by Richter.: N Mueller vs B Gregory, 1905
Richter did help to popularize it though.: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...
