Oct-15-20  Stolzenberg: This game can be compared to Fick vs van Hartingsvelt, Amsterdam 1919, where White played 12. b4.

  vonKrolock: That Dutch game from 1919 was a good find, an early example of this 12.b2-b4
Mar-09-21  Stolzenberg: Here it is: W Fick vs H van Hartingsvelt, 1919
Apr-15-21  Stolzenberg: With <22. ... Nh4> the knight went away from its king. Instead 22. ... Nh6 would have helped to protect the kingside.
Apr-18-21  Stolzenberg: <Instead 22. ... Nh6 would have helped ...> However, after 22. ... Nh6 23. Re8 White should easily win.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: You know, Capablanca could have done Janowski the courtesy of warning him--O Chajes vs Capablanca, 1916.
Apr-19-21  Stolzenberg: Good afternoon, Englishman! I agree. However, Chajes and Janowski played a long match earlier in 1918.

After 26. fxg5+ Black could have prolonged his resistance with 26. ... Kg6, which is of course hopeless, but at least better than the quick mate as in the game.

In order to honour this win, Chajes got the First Brilliancy Prize of this tournament.

Apr-20-21  Stolzenberg: Here it is: Chajes - Janowski (1918)
