DANIEL NOTEBOOM
(born Feb-26-1910, died Jan-12-1932, 21 years old) Netherlands

[what is this?]

DaniŽl Noteboom was a promising Dutch player who scored well at the 1930 Hamburg Olympiad and at Hastings 1931-32. His name is associated with an extremely complex variation in the Semi-Slav: 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.♘c3 c6 4.♘f3 dxc4 5.a4 ♗b4 6.e3 b5 7.♗d2 a5 8.axb5 ♗xc3 9.♗xc3 cxb5 10.b3 ♗b7. This sequence is commonly known as the Noteboom Variation, or the Abrahams-Noteboom Variation after Gerald Abrahams.

Noteboom's career was tragically cut short by pneumonia when he was only 21 years of age.

  fm avari viraf: It's very sad to pass away at such a tender age due to pnuemonia. Maybe, that time there was no effective remedy & many lives were lost. But to-day, it is not so since the world has made tremendous progress in medicine as well as in other spheres. Though, "Man is mortal" but due to his Noteboom variation, he is immortal! May God Bless His Soul Peace in Heaven, Eternally!
Feb-26-11  capanegra: Happy birthday, and RIP, Master Noteboom. Very sad to pass away so early, indeed.

As tribute, I'm posting a position shown in a tactics book of Roberto Grau, from a game between Noteboom and Winter in which White won with a very cute combination.

White to play and win.

Grau doesn't mention the date the game was played, or the tournament. Does anyone know anything about it?

Also, he passed away after the Hastings 1931/1932 tournament, but in the database there figures only one game against Koltanowsky. Apparently, there are many Noteboom games missing.

Feb-27-11  sneaky pete: <capanegra> The fragment against Winter is given in the (Dutch) Noteboom memorial book. Unfortunately no date or location is given, but circumstantial evidence makes it very likely the game was played in the Ramsgate tournament of August 1929.

Yes, a lot of worthy Noteboom games are still missing here. In the book I mentioned, the next game is a win, not in this database, against Salo Flohr, from the Premier Reserves of the 1929/30 Hastings tournament, giving Noteboom a total score of +2 -1 against Flohr.

Feb-27-11  sneaky pete: Noteboom vs V Berger, 1931 is also from the Hastings 1931/32 tournament.
Feb-27-11  capanegra: <sneaky pete> Thanks for the info. In #5617 of http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/... there is another Noteboom game also missing in the database, though in this case it is a lost one. It was played in the Hastings Premier Reserve of 1930/1931.
Oct-05-13  pajaste: I thought the Slav Noteboom was because when analysing it, early masters had to use a 'boom of notes' to keep track of all the lines.

  MissScarlett: <The fragment against Winter is given in the (Dutch) Noteboom memorial book. Unfortunately no date or location is given, but circumstantial evidence makes it very likely the game was played in the Ramsgate tournament of August 1929.>

But Winter was playing in the British championship and Noteboom in the Major Open.

http://www.saund.co.uk/britbase/pgn...

They also played in the other Ramsgate congress, of that year, in March/April, but, again, in separate events.

Feb-26-18  sneaky pete: Then the game must be from Hastings 1929/30.

  MissScarlett: No. Winter played the Premier, and again, Noteboom, the support event, viz., the Premier Reserves. The Reserves did, however, feature William Arthur Winser. But I think their game was drawn. Hmmm.

  MissScarlett: <But I think their game was drawn.>

Actually, Winser beat Noteboom, so there's no potential mix up there. Can't rule out the possibility they played elsewhere, though.

Yes, but White's a rook up. I'm guessing that's an omission.

  MissScarlett: Linlithgowshire Gazette, January 29th 1932, p.8:

<Obituary: The death took place in London, about a week ago, of the brilliant young Dutch expert, D. Noteboom, who was only 23 [sic] years of age. We regret to note that Dutch chess has suffered the loss of two such front-rank players as H. Weenink and D. Noteboom, within a few weeks of each other, and at so early an age. Mr Noteboom we met first at Scarborough, but he also played at Nice the same year, and won first prize there; and did well at ďB.C.F." Congresses. At the recent Hastings Congress, he won third prize in ďPremierĒ Reserves Tourney, although he appeared unwell. Noteboom was a very fine player, who evidently bore the heavy handicap of some physical weakness. His mastership was undoubted anyhow. For a young man his mien was unusually sombre and serious, and doubtless there was a good reason for the habitual sadness, which was noted by other players. John Keeble (who knew him well as anybody probably) specially remarked to us on this characteristic. We do not know the cause of his death, but the loss is a big one to Dutch chess, as also to British chess, for he was becoming a regular visitor to congresses here. Unlike H. Weenink, we think D. Noteboomís fame did not extend to the problem world ó at any rate, we knew of him only a player, and not as a problemist.>

Feb-26-18  sneaky pete: This is the position against <Winter> given in the Noteboom memorial book, with 2 black Rooks.
