Member since Sep-04-02 · Last seen Sep-23-18
I live in Stredokluky (a village near Prague, Czech republic). I play both practical and correspondence chess. My rating in practical chess (Czech national ELO) oscillates somewhere between 2010 and 2060, in correspondence chess I have rating 2155 (my best was 2220 in the middle of 90's). I have no special favorite player but I like to view good games of old masters (Tarrasch, Schlechter, Chigorin etc.)

   Sep-23-18 Korchnoi vs Najdorf, 1978
 
Honza Cervenka: After 48...Nxc6+ 49.bxc6 black is helpless despite of extra Exchange against white passed Pawn supported by King.
 
   Sep-16-18 J Schwarz vs Gunsberg, 1883
 
Honza Cervenka: Why not 25.Ne6?
 
   Sep-16-18 Paulsen vs A Schottlaender, 1883
 
Honza Cervenka: 12.Rc1 is too soft. 12.d6 was much better. Also 11.Bg5 or 11.0-0-0 were worth of consideration. Instead of 10...Nb8 it was better to play 10...Ne5.
 
   Sep-16-18 Von Bardeleben vs Paulsen, 1883
 
Honza Cervenka: 19.Rd3!? Nxb2 20.e5! Nxd3 21.exf6 Rfd8 22.Ne4 Rac8 23.Rb1!? was worth of consideration.
 
   Sep-16-18 V Hruby vs A Schottlaender, 1883
 
Honza Cervenka: White managed to win a Pawn but did not find a way to make any progress in Q+B vs Q+N ending.
 
   Sep-16-18 K Leffmann vs Gunsberg, 1883
 
Honza Cervenka: I see nothing wrong for black with 20...Rxb7 21.bxa6 Rb8.
 
   Sep-16-18 A Fritz vs Winawer, 1883
 
Honza Cervenka: 15...Rd8 looks very unpleasant for white, as retreat of white LSB from b1-h7 line is followed by Bf5, and 16.Rd1 can be met with 16...Ng4 17.Qe2 Bf5 18.Bc2 (18.Bxf5 Qxd1+ 19.Qxd1 Rxd1+ 20.Kxe1 Nxe3+ -+) 18...Qe6 with decisive advantage of black in both cases.
 
   Sep-16-18 Bird vs A Fritz, 1883
 
Honza Cervenka: Instead of 23...Nxf5(?) it was better to play 23...Bxf5! 24.exf5 Qh6! (24...f6? 25.Ne4 +-) 25.Rxe5+ Kd7 26.Re4 Rae8 27.Qc1 Rxe4 28.Nxe4 Rc8 29.Bf1 Nxf5 with equal game. In the text 24...Qh6 is better than 24...f6(?) but already insufficient for 25.Rxe5+ Kd8 26.Re6!! Qf8 ...
 
   Sep-16-18 Bird vs M Bier, 1883
 
Honza Cervenka: 20...Bd7 loses for 21.Rf6+ Ke7 22.Qxg7+ Rf7 23.Qg5 Kf8 24.Rh6 etc. But 20...Ke7! seems to hold the game with advantage for black.
 
   Sep-16-18 E Schallopp vs Blackburne, 1883
 
Honza Cervenka: 18...Bd6?! and 20...Ne4?? were decisive mistakes.

  sachistu: Hi <Honza Cervenka>! I was wondering if you might have time to look at the introductory comments to a game in the publication Ceské listy sachové (1897)? There is an online copy available on chessarch.com (on the library tab) 1897 v2 page 95-96.

The typical venue, year and player information is apparently hidden in the introduction. From the limited portion I have been able to translate, there is apparently a discussion of the war of 1469 between King George (Jiri) of Podebrady and King Matthias (Matyas) of Bohemia. Exactly what, if anything, it has to do with the game escapes me. It was apparently a consultation game and the names of the players mentioned seem to be of that contemporary era (188n-189n).

I'm hoping you can translate enough of the text to determine the venue, the year and players (or cities) for both sides involved. I noticed from one of your kibitz you did not have access to online archives. If you are not able to access the chessarch site, perhaps I can extract the pages to send you. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

  sachistu: Hi <jan>. Have been away since June 2nd and just returned. The online (chessarch) copy is embedded in 3 volumes (1896 1897 1898) and thus not so easy to find. I will have to work on a way to pull out that section as the PDF (60Mb) is too big to send via my mail server. As soon as I can create something workable, I will send it to you.

  Honza Cervenka: <sachistu> The game was a composition of Dr. Jan Dobrusky and it was an allegory of the defeat and surrender of Matthias Corvinus by George of Poděbrady at Vilémov in February 1469 during so-called Bohemian War 1468-1478. The game was performed live by members of Czech Sokol and Czech Chess Association in historical costumes during a national exhibition.

Well, there is a solution with a series of under-promotion:

1.h8=N g3 2.Ng6 fxg6 3.f7 g5 4.f8=N g4 5.Ne6 dxe6 6.d7 e5 7.d8=N e4 8.Nc6 bxc6 9.b7 c5 10.b8=N c4 11.Nc6 c3 12.Nb4#

  zborris8: <White to move wins:> 1. g7 Yeah? No. I don't think this works. The Black king will somehow turn into a knight and escape.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: <zborris8: <White to move wins:> 1. g7 Yeah?> The first move is correct. Of course, 1....Qxg7 is forced reply. And what now?:-)

Premium Chessgames Member
  zborris8: <And what now?:-)> The purpose of <1. g7> was for me to safeguard the bishop on h1 for the discovered check. <1...Qxg7 2. d6+>.

  zborris8: Ok, I see it through now. It's not the king that turns into a knight, it's the pawn. Very good puzzle, <Honza Cervenka>!

  jith1207: And then there is the small matter of mating the king with a bishop and a knight.

Still better than these two against a queen.
