  Calli: Was "Max" his nickname? In the book of the Vierte Kongress, Hamburg 1885, they list "Max Bier aus Hamburg" See Google books, page 16, http://books.google.com/books?id=Uy...

  whiteshark: <Calli> These numbers really cut both ways.

Maybe <6*999+6> is plainer ?

and no <!> as it's the sign for <factorial>. :D

how come no person other than myself is here ?!?
HEUREKA! Finally <waissa> vanished into thin air! Well, time to hoax someone else I guess :)

  whiteshark: <myschkin> Actually I opened my forum at that time, so no need to roam around here anymore, and, unfortunately since then 'Le Bürgelmaschine' is solely covered over with rubbish from one 'artist'. :(

  zanzibar: What criteria are used to select Martin over Max?

A quick scan of the contemporaneous literature does show both Martin and Max used, both in English and German. But I'm fairly confident saying that Max has the edge in terms of usage.

Plus the BCM obituary used it, as do the big tournament books I've seen with his name listed, etc. etc.

Jun-26-16  Chessist: Mr Bier wrote himself "Martin", as pointed out in an older Kaissiber issue (with reprint of his signature).

  HeMateMe: If Bier played Beer, well, things could get confusing. would one side play the Falkbeer counter gambit while the other side would name it the Falkbier opening?

I think I need a beer...

Jan-22-17  Paarhufer: One day after Carlsen's big oversight (see Carlsen vs A Giri, 2017) it's time for a few more.

Bier v Dr Jahr, Hamburg 1896.

1. e4 e5 2. ♘f3 ♘c6 3. ♗c4 ♘f6 4. ♘g5 d5 5. exd5 ♘a5 6. ♗b5+ c6 7. dxc6 bxc6 8. ♗e2 h6 9. ♘f3 e4 10. ♘e5 ♗d6 11. f4 ♕c7 12. d4 exd3 13. ♗xd3 ♗xe5 14. ♕e2 O-O 15. fxe5 ♖e8 16. ♗f4 (16.O-O!) 16... ♗g4 (16... ♘d5 17.♗g3 ♕b6) 17. ♕f2 ♖xe5+

Here 18.♔f1 was necessary. Bier played instead 18.♗xe5?, which gives him a loosing position. 18... ♕xe5 19. ♔d2. This allows several nice wins.


click for larger view

One killer move is 19... ♕g5+! with a mating attack (20.♕e3 ♘e4+ 21.♗xe4 ♘c4+), another is 19... ♘c4+ 20.♗xc4 ♘e4+ with winning material advantage.

But Jahr took that pawn on b2 (still ). 19... ♕xb2 20.♘c3 ♖d8 (20... ♕b4!} 21.♕c5 ♘b7 22.♕e5.

Jan-22-17  Paarhufer:

Things are not easy. One winning continuation is 22... ♘d6 threatening two deadly checks. Hence the white queen should move, say 23. ♕f4 ♘fe4+ 24.♘xe4 ♘c4++ 25.♔e1 and Black wins both rooks. Not working is a counteratack after 22... ♘d6: 23.♖hb1 ♘c4+ 24.♔e1 ♕xb1+ etc.

Jahr however found 22... ♖d5?, after which he should have lost (23.♖ab1 or 23.♖hb1). Bier missed this and played 23.♕g3?, which allowed Black to continue the attack: 23... ♘c5 24.♖ab1 ♘fe4+ 0-1

  zanzibar: Max is preferred over Martin.

I think the following indicates he might have been a banker from Hamburg:

https://books.google.com/books?id=r..."max+bier"+hamburg&dq="max+bier"+hamburg&hl=en&sa=X

.

Feb-07-18  Chessist: Maybe there was a banker "Max Bier" in Hamburg who celebrated his eightieth birthday in June 1934 whereas the chessplayer "Martin Bier" was born two months earlier.
