Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-12-13  thomastonk: The introduction mentions certain time limit regulations which are not explained in detail. The DSZ 1906, p 159 describes them as follows.

If the game is finished within the first session (usually 9 am until 2 pm), then no time violation has happened; if the game is continued, then the tournament director will decide after the end of the game whether some player exceeded the time limit. A small exceedance - say 5 minutes - has no implications; a considerable exceedance causes a penalty of 1 M (Mark) per minute. A player, who disturbs the tournament by playing too slow (i.e., an exceedance of 30 minutes), will also get a warning. Three warnings cause the elimination from the tournament, and the player will not be invited again.

Wow, das ist deutsche Gründlichkeit!

In another source I found descriptions of many strange games caused by these rules. E.g., some players, who spend too much time in the early phases of a drawn game added meaningless moves at the end to avoid a penalty or warning. Moreover, after a few rounds the players had to pay already more than 1000 M penalties. Is this true?

What else is known to have happened?

Jun-27-17  zanzibar: <thomastonk> yes, essential to mention the bizarre (retro-?) time controls - or, rather, apparent attempt to subvert time controls.

Spraggett (kiddie-warning) deals with the topic:



Mar-14-18  zanzibar: fwiw ...

<das ist deutsche Gründlichkeit> =

<that is German thoroughness>

Mar-14-18  zanzibar: While I generally approve, nay, heartily endorse, quoting contemporaneous sources for learning about tournaments - the <CG> intro could use a little framing to help the reader.

First, an introductory sentence to indicate that ACB is being quote would help orient the reader.

Otherwise, one could begin reading, under the false premise that a contemporary <CG> editor wrote the material, and then come to this pothole:

<Only a few of Marshall’s games have reached here, as it is the intention of Dr. Tarrasch to publish the full collection in the congress book. Wolf’s defeat by Marshall is classical in its beautiful conception.>

And then, even after realizing the material comes from a ACB excerpt, the above needs to reframed in contemporary terms, e.g. note that <CG> has all the tournament games, and that a TB was published (presumably - a link would be useful!).

Another point to mention is that the above intro is nice, as said, but omits some essential info - like the controversial time controls, the prizes awarded, the fact that Berger dropped out (note the odd number of entrants), and maybe a link to the TB?


Mar-14-18  zanzibar: RE: time control aberrations only alluded to in the intro:

<Our correspondent writes that "the Nuremberg tournament was indeed a failure, as you say, and this entirely owing to the ill-considered experiment of abolishing the time limit. Personal frictions and unnecessary quarrels, which had to be settled by the committee, were the order of the day. One of the players availed himself systematically of the 'time condition' to such an extent that the matter was brought before the committee and a jury of all the players, in which the expulsion of the player in question was considered. The verdict was given in his favor, but only to avoid further trouble, as others would have been affected by a different decision."> ACB v3 (1906) p207

Apr-10-19  ughaibu: <the advent of the congress book will be awaited with unusual impatience>

Anyone read it yet?

  Pawn and Two: I have a copy of the 1984 Olms Edition for the 14th & 15th DSB Kongress - Coburg 1904 & Nuremburg 1906. The material for the Nuremburg 1906 tournament is from the original tournament book, 'Der funfzehnte Kongress des Deutschen Schachbundes zu Nurnberg 1906', by Dr. Tarrasch & J. Schenzel, published in Nuremburg in 1906.
Apr-10-19  ughaibu: Pawn and Two: I see. Did it live up to the anticipation with unusual impatience?

  Pawn and Two: ughaibu: Interestingly, it did turn out that way for me. I had been searching for a long time for a copy of this book, and because of the delay I was feeling a bit impatient. However, now that I own the book, I can tell you I am pleased with the quality of the book, including the binding, annotations, and other tournament information that was included.
Apr-11-19  ughaibu: Pawn and Two: Great! Thanks.
