RUDOLF REZSO CHAROUSEK
(born Sep-19-1873, died Apr-18-1900, 26 years old) Hungary
PRONUNCIATION:
[what is this?]
Rezső (Rudolf) Charousek was born in Prague. He learned to play chess in his early teenage years, and his international debut came at the Nuremberg Tournament of 1896. Although he failed to win a prize, he defeated World Champion Emanuel Lasker in their individual encounter. Later that year he tied Mikhail Chigorin for first place at Budapest, and then took clear first place in the Berlin tournament of 1897. After these and other successes, Lasker remarked, "I shall have to play a championship match with this man someday." This did not happen, however, due to Charousek's death from tuberculosis on April 18, 1900, at the age of twenty-six.

  Telemus: My post from 6th September mentioned games Charousek played with Englander published in "Budapesti Sakk-Szemele" 1892-93.

Yesterday I made PGNs for all Charousek games from there, except of two corr games, which are already here. (About the half of them were not in my collection before. So, even with 300+ games it is possible to add new ones.)

I start with the games against other opponents than Englander.

  sachistu: Thanks <Telemus>. This is great! I meant to thank you for the reference to Budapesti Sakk-szemele. I spent the other day downloading the PDF's for those years (1889-1893), but have not had time to transcribe any of the games not currently in my database. It looks like you have done part of that already!

I hate to be persistent, but I was hoping to see the source for game 7 of the Exner match. I see you included Source information for the other games in your kibitz(s) of Nov 16. Thanks!

If your interest is things Hungarian, I have a complete run of Magyar Sakkvilag from 1922 to 1950. It looks like I have 830+ games from that source (nowhere near all the games available). I just have not had time to go through all of them.

  sachistu: Thanks <Telemus>. Did not want to be 'pushy', but Source information is very important to me (as it is to many others). Am busy folding the games you supplied into my database. I suspect most if not all will be 'new' games. Much appreciated.

  Telemus: <sachistu> Did you see the Exner/Albin match in "Budapesti Sakk-Szemle"(*)? Could be interesting.

(*) Please note the correction Szemle instead of Szemele in the source tags.

  sachistu: Have not examined that game yet <Telemus> but thanks for the note. By the way, in the game Kalniczky-Charousek, you'll want to adjust your score to 38.cxd3 (instead of 38.Kxd3).

As you saw, BSs had a typo for move 34 (which gave the impossible K-B4). Kb3 had to be the move based on the rest of the score.

  Telemus: About the third game (C30, 59 moves, draw) in your first post of Nov-14-18: I have it in three databases, always with Charousek playing the white(!) pieces.

One of these databases is the CG download (see Charousek vs G V R Exner, 1896). There it differs from the two other databases with respect to site (a match in Budapest vs the match in Szekesfehervar),

The game is also contained in Charuchin's book, page 80, again Charousek as White and belonging to the match in Szekesfehervar. The other two databases give - as CG - the 2nd April 1896 as date. Charuchin has neither round number nor date. And nowhere a primary source ...

Btw, Charuchin's book contains 250 Charousek games, but only three of the ten games from the match in Szekesfehervar.

Nov-17-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Telemus: About the first game (C41, 40 moves, 1-0) from your second post of Nov-14-18. This game is also here, but with 1897: Charousek vs G Makovetz, 1897. There the game is said to belong to a match.

Charuchin, page 1896 has "Budapest 1896", no match mentioned. Two other databses (which should count as one, because they depend on each other anyway) have "Budapest casual, 1896". And once again: far and wide no primary source.

  Telemus: One can find Charuchin's bibliography and seemingly the whole book by means of Google ... but, oh boy, I stay away from it for legal reasons (I have a printed copy).

Charuchin gives Budapesti Sakkszemle 1889-1893 as soure 22. So, we should assume that he knew all Charousek games published there. The Kalniczky game is indeed there (game no. 14), but with the year 1891. And some games with Englšnder are there, too, but none with the year 1893, though Budapesti Sakkszemle seems to be clear-cut. Confusing.

Okay, I've enough of this.

Nov-17-18  Jean Defuse: ...

Yes, the games in "Budapesti Sakk-Szemle" - 1. Charousek v Englander 1-0 (37) C28 & 2. Englander v Charousek 0-1 (20) C54 - wasn't exact dated.

This games played a bit earlier, as a part of the 1891/92 Match:

Magyar Sakktortenet Vol. 3, p. 43-44, dated game 1. <20.3.1892> & p. 43, game 2. <10.2.1892>

...

  Telemus: Thank you very much, <Jean Defuse>!

So, two of the five games between Charousek and Englander, which I posted above (the first and the last one), are in Charuchin's book and wrongly dated in Budapesti Sakkszemle.

The player index of Charuchin's book lists six games between Charousek and Englšnder. Apart of the two games mentioned by <JD> these are:

Game 16: Ch-E 1-0, 33, Evans Gambit (1891-92)

Game 17: Ch-E 1-0, 32, King's Gambit Accepted (1891-92)

Game 41: Ch-E 1-0, 33, King's pawn game (1894)

Game 200: Ch-E 1-0, 31, Ruy Lopez (1898).

Comparing the remaining three games I posted above with this list, it seems that they are not in Charuchin's book. Hence he overlooked these three games?!? Still confusing.

  sachistu: Thanks for the additional information <Telemus and Jean Defuse>. Regarding the '3rd game' (C30 1/2 in 59)... this is actually the first game of the match per your feedback. My copy came several years ago from the online database Chesslab. It does not surprise me the colors were reversed. Now that I have sorted the match games with the game number included, it's easy to agree Charousek was White as Exner had White in game 2.

By the way, as you no doubt saw, Rod Edwards (EDO) site indicated Feenstra Kuiper 100 Jahr Schachzweikampfe gave the location as Budapest.

Nov-17-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Why do I suddenly sense a can of worms opening? The EDO site shows different reports about the result of the match. EDO (apparently using Di Felice) has it 7.5 - 2.5 (+6-1=3). Feenstra Kuiper had it +6-3=1 (which seems dubious). Di Felice has it this way...

G1 1/2
G2 0-1 (Exner)
G3 1-0 (RRC)
G4 1-0 (RRC)
G5 1-0 (RRC)
G6 1/2
G7 1/2
G8 1-0 (RRC)
G9 1-0 (RRC)
G10 1-0 (RRC)
note: 1-0 or 0-1 does not indicate color, just who won.

Here is how I have it in my database.
Charousek,R - Exner,G [C30] g1 1/2 59
Exner,G - Charousek,R [C79] g2 1-0 50
Charousek,R - Exner,G [C44] g3 1-0 47
Exner,G - Charousek,R [B40] g4 0-1 23
Charousek,R - Exner,G [C30] g5 1-0 23

Charousek,R - Exner,G [C22] g9 1/2 42
Exner,G - Charousek,R [C50] g10 1-0 24

This cannot right. Game 10, (C50 1-0 in 24) which I changed to Exner-Charousek due to color assignments, is a win for White, but if that was Charousek, it means he had White for both games 9 and 10. <Telemus> you apparently have all the game scores, game numbers and color assignments. What does your source say? I should mention, game 6 (C31 0-1 in 28) was listed elsewhere as a draw, but Black seems to be clearly winning, so I have it as 0-1. Regardless, This still doesn't give a 7.5 - 2.5 result. Evidently, you were right in your earlier kibitz about the numbers being different.

  sachistu: <Telemus> I failed to go back far enough in our thread to recall your earlier response about Charousek-Exner match. It looks like our game numbers do match. However, the colors and results appear to be a different story. Hopefully, the breakdown I sent will provide an answer to the match result discrepancy.

  sachistu: <Telemus> I changed game 10 (C56 1-0 in 24) back to have Charousek as White. This is how it was originally listed in my database. This now gives the 7.5 - 2.5 match result I was expecting. However, if the color assignments, results, and scores are as listed in my recent kibitz, then Charousek had White in both games 9 and 10, which seems odd. Sorry if I am adding to the confusion.

  Telemus: <but if that was Charousek, it means he had White for both games 9 and 10.> That's exactly what I have. Looks suspicious.

  sachistu: Thanks for the information <Jean Dufuse> However, Charuchin's data seems suspicious. First, assuming the game number is what you meant for '1' and '3', they would have had to play more than one game a day e.g. when was game 2 played? Both games 1 and 2 were 50+ moves, so it's hard to believe they would play 3 games in two days. Second, if the '10' means game 10, this is questionable as to the result, as it seems Black is winning. This would also mean the Di Felice (Chess Results) order of the games is wrong.

  Telemus: <JD> And I obviously missed the chapter "Uncommented Games" ...

For me it's high time to stop with Charousek and do something else.
