|Sep-25-07|| ||candide1500: wow no kibitzing or further information on this early chess theorist?? hmmm interesting that he worked with nimzo, i have never come across the name in any of his writings....|
|Sep-25-07|| ||whiteshark: Here is another <Krause> move:|
<1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 dxc4 5.a4 Bf5 <6.Nh4!?>> (Former world champion Alexander Alekhine gave credit for this knight move to <Orla Hermann Krause>, a Danish analyst who found many new ideas in the Slav defense in the 1920s. White wastes time to eliminate the ominous black's queen bishop at all costs. The leading alternative today is 6.Ne5.) <6...Bg4> (In the game Alekhine-Stolz, Bled 1931, black played 6...e6, which Alekhine considered natural and good. He wrote: "White will enjoy a pair of bishops [after 7.Nxf5 exf5 8.e3], but as long as black is able to control the central squares he should not have much to fear."
Most common is the retreat 6...Bc8. Alekhine advocated 7.e3 e5 8.Bxc4 exd4 9.exd4 "with slightly better prospects for white." Garry Kasparov picked up this line almost 60 years later but without much success. More interesting is the piece sacrifice 7.e4 e5 8.Bxc4 exd4 9.Nf3!?, for example 9...dxc3 10.Bxf7+ Ke7 11.Qb3 with messy prospects.) ....

|Aug-22-08|| ||myschkin: . . .
His name is attached to the <Krause Variation> in the Queen's Pawn Opening (1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 c5!?).
He analysed it for the Austrian chess magazine "Wiener Schachzeitung" in 1929. It is essentially a Queen's Gambit Reversed, with Black a tempo behind.

|Mar-04-11|| ||GrahamClayton: Krause was responsible for the creation of the Krause Variation in the Slav Defence in the 1920's:|
|Nov-03-11|| ||whiteshark: <Player of the Day>|
He tied for 4-6th at Wilhelmshaven 1892,
took 2nd, behind Andreas Rosendahl, at Copenhagen 1895,
took 2nd at Copenhagen 1899 (the 2nd Nordic Championship, Jorgen Moeller won),
took 5th at Copenhagen 1907 (the 7th Nordic-ch, Paul Saladin Leonhardt won),
shared 2nd, behind Paul Johner at Copenhagen 1916 (the 9th Nordic-ch),
tied for 4-8th at Copenhagen 1924 (the 12th Nordic-ch, Aron Nimzowitsch won),
and tied for 5-8th at Copenhagen 1934 (the 16th Nordic-ch, Nimzowitsch won).
Krause played for Denmark at first board (+4 –5 =6) in the 1st Chess Olympiad at London 1927, and won team silver medal there.
|Nov-03-11|| ||sfm: He wrote a small book too, about the beginning position in chess! He concluded that it was drawn, which is less obvious than one might think. Never saw the the book, it is hard to find.|
|Nov-03-11|| ||Shams: <sfm> More interesting than his conclusion (that chess is drawn) is how confident he was in it. Do you recall?|
|Nov-04-11|| ||Caissanist: Edward Lasker is quite contemptuous towards Krause in his book <Chess Secrets>. Lasker portrays him as a self-important hack who called himself a "theoretician" because he couldn't really play, and whose published variations were unreliable for that reason.|
|Nov-04-11|| ||TheFocus: Nimzowitsch thought quite highly of Krause.|
|Nov-04-11|| ||Caissanist: I have heard a lot of criticism of that book over the years so I wouldn't call it 100% reliable; still, I thought his perspective was interesting. Most of Lasker's trash talk comes in the context of a game in which he wiped out Yates thanks to the latter's ill-advised decision to follow some of Krause's published analysis. To hear Lasker tell it, he and Teichmann had thought the Krause analysis ridiculous on its face, sat down to analyze it, and found a bust rather easily. Lasker then used the move to ambush Yates a few months later. |
The game's not in the database yet, one of these days I'll get around to uploading it.
|Mar-28-12|| ||Tabanus: <whiteshark: He ... took 2nd, behind Andreas Rosendahl, at Copenhagen 1895>|
Anyone knows about this tournament? The game J Moeller vs J A Ros, 1895 is from Stockholm 1897.
Searching on the Danish words "skak københavn 1895 rosendahl" in Google I get 63.000 hits, mostly in English, all apparently repeating each other.
Jeremy Gaige's index also lists Copenhagen 1895.
Seaching Google advanced for Danish sites only, however, produces nothing (?) and it's not listed in http://storiascacchi.altervista.org.... Perhaps I should try harder.
|Mar-28-12|| ||Calli: DeFelice in Chess Results gives a crosstable for "Copenhagen 1895 (1894-95?)". It's a double round event with 8 players. Andreas Christian Rosendahl 11.5, Krause 10, Vielhelm Nielsen 9, J H Giersing 8, Jorgen Moller 8, Axel Carl Martin Pritzel 6.5, F. Schroder 2, Karl Koppel 1.|
|Mar-29-12|| ||Tabanus: <Calli> Thanks. Yes it's the same players as in Gaige's index, and http://www.edochess.ca/tournaments/.... I can't find any games, but perhaps there are some in Skakbladet 1895ff which I believe Rosendahl was the first editor of.|
|Apr-05-12|| ||Tabanus: Perhaps someone knows when Krause was the editor of the chess magazine Skakbladet? If he ever was.|
