|Jan-12-12|| ||eSpade: Thanks to CG.com for choosing my pun for this game, and also to the masters for creating such a masterpiece :)|
|Jan-12-12|| ||BlackSheep: Sublime play there by Charousek , shame he had such an early exit at 27.|

|Jan-12-12|| ||Penguincw: Well, Maroczy wasn't that old at the time, was he?|
|Jan-12-12|| ||ciberchess: Maroczy was 26 years old at that time, he was not a child.|
|Jan-12-12|| ||kevin86: Strange,but by the end of the game,Maroczy position looks like he made about ten less moves than Charousek-kind of like LSU vs Alabama last Monday.|
|Jan-12-12|| ||Llawdogg: Holy Crap! That took some nerve.|
|Jan-12-12|| ||thendcomes: Poor play by Maroczy diminishes this game, IMO.
<Coolin> mentioned that four pieces are left en prise after 18...Bb4. I count only two - the Bishops on a4 and b4. The pinned c3 Pawn and d3 Bishop cannot move, so Black's Queen and e4 Rook are not en prise.

Would like to remind everyone that Caissar Award is being held in my forum. And today, we are voting on <Most Constructive> and <Funniest Kibitzer>.
You can see the list of nominees and vote by clickin' on the Wabbit Avatar.
|Jan-12-12|| ||TheoNov: These two, esp Charousek, sure did love fireworks! Check this earlier encounter: Charousek vs Maroczy, 1893|
|Jan-13-12|| ||Rob Lob Law: is 19. cxb4 ok to play? I realize the queen can take the rook on a1 but then the b pawn can take the a4 bishop. Is white ok there?|
|Jan-13-12|| ||Shams: <Rob Lob Law> It's like you're willing to hold chess notation by the hand, but not kiss it. :)|
19.cxb4 Re3 20.Qf1 Bb5 looks good for Black, same problem as in the game. You are correct that White is fine on 19...Qxa1?
|Jan-13-12|| ||Rob Lob Law: <Shams> I just dont want to move to fast with chess notation... :P|
Yeah i missed Re3 because i thought bxa4 would compensate for the loss of queen (2 bishops and the rook for a queen and eventually 2 pawns). Now i see that 19 cxb4 Re3 bxa4 Qxd4 is mate. What a wicked position!
Would white really be ok if 19 cxb4 Qxa1? The position seems unclear to me, and although white is up material after 20 bxa4, I think black might still have a slight edge due to the exposed king and scattered white pawns.
|Jan-14-12|| ||Shams: <Rob> 19...Qxa1? 20.Bxe4 |
|Jul-09-17|| ||Marcelo Bruno: <Coolin> Not only they are en prise, but also Black has a pawn minus: a remarkable example of tactical hability with combinative and positional play, all mixed together. I saw this game today in Youtube.|
|Jul-10-17|| ||tamar: this game is bound for glory, this game|
|Sep-19-18|| ||GlennOliver: Excellent pun for this game.
I had not previously heard of Charousek, but this is a very fine attacking game, so perhaps time to explore his oeuvre.
|Sep-19-18|| ||zanzibar: Charousek vs Lasker, 1896 (kibitz #30)|
Well, saint or not, 18...Bb4 was indeed a heavenly move.
(Hard to believe that 17.b3 actually leaves White oh-so-slightly better)
|Sep-19-18|| ||MissScarlett: GM (Geza Maroczy) vs GM (Geometry Master)|
|Sep-19-18|| ||Boomie: ->
For some reason, the tournament link isn't active. Budapest (1896)
In this fine tournament, what seemed the future of chess played. Schlechter, Charousek, and Pillsbury are in their early 20's. Maroczy is 26. Unfortunately, aside from Maroczy, all the others died young.
|Sep-19-18|| ||zanzibar: <Boomie> good catch. I should have noticed as well.|
The tournament game seems to be this one:
Maroczy vs Charousek, 1896
Not exactly sure what was the circumstances of this game (i.e. the one on this page), nor what its source was.
|Sep-20-18|| ||Boomie: <zanzibar: <Boomie> good catch. I should have noticed as well.
The tournament game seems to be this one:>|
How strange. One of these games is misidentified. Perhaps one of them was off hand during the tournament. They were close friends and Maroczy was one of Charousek's teachers.
|Sep-20-18|| ||Boomie: Good find Z. This must have been a training game and is not a part of the tournament.|
|Sep-20-18|| ||zanzibar: <Boomie> can't really say at the moment, maybe someone else has better info?|
I'll try to investigate this one more if no one does a follow-up.
