Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-17-05  paladin at large: Cool positional play by Maroczy, leaving him with the better bishop. Fine adjustment on his kingside for both attack and defense, too. I cannot understand how Blackburne overlooked 32. c5. Maroczy had just played c4!
Apr-17-05  who: I wonder if it's correct to call this a petrov. It seems more like a giuco pianno
Apr-17-05  aw1988: No, this is definitely Petroff.
Jul-04-16  zanzibar: Actually it was a Petroff, as <CG> has the opening wrong...

<NIC>,<CB>,<365> + TB G-37 p39/67 all give this:

<2... Nf6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.Bc4 d6 5.a3 Ba5 6.O-O Nc6>

Jul-04-16  zanzibar: OK, there's corrections to the TB (on p349/377) which I'll need to review to verify the above post.

  Pawn and Two: <zanzibar> The tournament book, <Internationales Kaiser-Jubilaums-Schachturnier Wien 1898>, Edition Olms, shows the moves as: <2....Nf6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.Bc4 d6 5.a3 Ba5 6.0-0 Nc6>.

Harding in his recent biography on Blackburne also shows the same moves as the tournament book for this game.

Jul-05-16  zanzibar: <P&2> thanks for that, I couldn't get to the Harding copy, and was wondering.
