  Honza Cervenka: Viktor Tietz (1859-1937) was a co-founder and the first president of Carlsbad's (Karlovy Vary) chess club. He was good player (he beat not only Schlechter, but also Lasker, although those games were played in a simul) but became famous rather as an excellent chess organiser (he organised famous Carlsbad tournaments in 1907, 1911, 1923 and 1929, match Albin vs Marco 1901, match Janowski vs Schlechter 1902 or Euwe vs Flohr 1932) and arbiter.

Here is his game with Lasker:

  Benzol: Thanks <Honza>.

I found the following diagram in Gerald Abrahams "The Chess Mind".

From a game played in Karlsbad circa 1900

White : Viktor Tietz

Black : A. Schwalb

White to play continued

1.Ng6+ fxg6
2.fxg6+ Kg8
3.Rc8 Rxc8
4.Rxc2 Rf8
5.Rc8 Qe7
6.Qc4+ Kh8
7.Qh4 Ra1+
8.Bxa1 Qe3+
9.Kh1 Rxc8
10.Qxh4+ and forces mate in 5 moves.

I hope that this finish actually occurred in over the board play and wasn't composed. If so it would be a great game to track down the full score of.

Tietz was also a member of the Carlsbad city council.

  Karpova: The last ten years of his life, Tietz was blinded by an ailment of his eyes.

  Benzol: <Conrad93> Are you basing that assertion on one simultaneous game?
Dec-30-12  Conrad93: Yes. Yes I am.

  Benzol: So if a player draws simultaneous games against GM's and IM's he should be at least of IM strength?
Dec-30-12  Conrad93: Yep. Now you have it.

  Benzol: Well Paul Morten has drawn simultaneous games against IM Herman van Riemsdijk and GM's Nigel Short and Drazen Sermek. I can assure you he is not anywhere near GM or even IM strength. Sorry to disappoint you.

:)

Tietz unleashed 1.Rxb5! cxb5 2.Rc8!! Qd5 3.Qa1+ e5 4.Bxe5+ Qxe5 5.Rxf8+ Kg7 6.Rf7+ 1-0.

As it happens, he had an even stronger move with 1.Qf1 as it retains the threat of Rxb5 and brings the move Qf6+ into play. Likewise, 1.Rxb5 cxb5 2.Qf1 works too.
