  jessicafischerqueen: This game was not played in <Budapest>- It was played in <Székesfehérvár>, Hungary.

<Charousek> had beaten <Exner> in their first Match in 1895 at the Budapest Chess Club +3 -0 =5, and promised to play a return Match in Exner's home city of <Székesfehérvár>.

This is Round One of the second Match.

<Charousek> won +6 -1 =3

  jessicafischerqueen: Here is an old photograph of <Székesfehérvár> in 1905:

"(This) city is rightly called the cradle of the state."

According to history/legend, this was the home city of legendary Magyar conqueror <King Árpád>, founder of the modern Hungarian State.

Feb-21-15  zanzibar: Hi <jessicafischerqueen> -

Just wondering what source you have from the match being played in <Székesfehérvár>?

I found mention in <Deutsch Schachzeitlung> that Exner was a professor in Székesfehérvár, but without mention of the match location.

Of course, I'm limited by googe translate.

Also, I'm curious what photo you intended to show with the link above, sadly, it's now stale.

Much obliged...

<Z> In case you secretly wanted to watch a video slide show "history of Charousek," there is one here:

Feb-22-15  zanzibar: <JFQ> Yes, I already discovered that one in your wonderful series. I was rather impressed with the synchronicity of the subtitling and the music score.

And it was impressive seeing the photographic detail, e.g. the house he was born in, in Prague.

But I didn't have time to watch all of it... have to come back to it.

BTW- you do know that the web is being replaced by videos faster than we dinosaurs can bang away at the keyboard, don't you?

(The graphic alone is entertaining)
