  Calli: Soren A Sorensen was editor of the Danish magazine, Nordisk Skaktidende, in the 1870s and 1880s. He published many of his own games including these, I think. They are not fakes, its just that we only have those which are best known from opening analysis or included "Best Short Games" books.

  martin moller: <perrypawnpusher>Very interesting game and typically Soren Anton Sorensen. I do not have the game, because "Nordisk skaktidende" stopped 1881, do you have other games from that period played by danes? i am very interested. You can post them here or in my forum. Looking forward to hear from you.
Kind regards

  martin moller: Soren Anton Sorensen won the 1874 London chessproblem tournament with the following # in 4 problem, which was so difficult that the judges had to ask for the solution, before Soren Anton Sorensen could be awarded winner !!

Oct-06-08  ahmadov: <martin moller> Thanks for suggesting me to solve this problem... At least, this proves you have more confidence in my puzzle solving capacity than the judges of the 1874 London chessproblem tournament... ;-)

In a more serious note, I will look at it and try to solve it... If not, please, post the solution yourself...

Oct-06-08  ahmadov: Just without looking at the puzzle on a chess board, and giving it a good consideration I would suggest: 1.Re3 any move, then 2.Nc6+ Nxc6 3.Qd5+ Kf6 4.Qe6 mate

There is definitely something I miss, because this should not be so easy...

Oct-06-08  ahmadov: I have just seen that 1...Nxg2 can be a spoiler move for my solution above...

  martin moller: The ten games from The Politiken cup 2009, are played by another Dane named Svend Erik Førby Sørensen rated 1800 ! Nothing to do with Søren Anton Sørensen.
