  offramp: The second game of the match, and Jacques Mieses plays the Mieses Opening. This seems to turn quickly into a Reversed God-knows-what Defence:

White has just played 10. Bd2 and is about to castle.

The Mieses Opening has backfired. In order to prolong the game White must give up a piece.

As usual, after losing the piece Mieses starts to play well. It is too late, though, and Teichmann plays very well.

Jul-01-23  YoungEd: Except for <kingscrusher's> addition above, this seems to be the only game in the database in which Mieses plays what is called the Mieses opening. Don't you think players should champion an opening a bit more to have it named after themselves?
