  An Englishman: Good Evening: Is this the same Cordel for whom the Classical Variation of the Ruy Lopez is sometimes named? If yes, it's a pity there are none of his games with that line.

As far as the current game goes, the wildness is pretty impressive. Dannberg blunders horribly with 35. Rc1??, overlooking the simple sacrifice 35...Nh4. Supposedly, the Manhattan Chess Club has an old saying that Black pawns travel faster than White pawns; this game is a good example. White's fourth move is not standard theory today, but it's well motivated; he's playing a reversed Philidor (1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,d6; 3.d4,f5) with an extra tempo (Nc3). Cordel did well to avoid the double Knight fork: 11...Nf2; 12.Ke1,Nh1; 13.Nc7,Kd8; 14.Na8,bc6 temporarily evens the material, but Black has weak pawns, and his Knight will a lot of trouble escaping. Fun game; I wonder if this was state of the art opening theory for 1887.

  vonKrolock: <An Englishman> good day: yes, Oskar Cordel is the author of important early works on Opening Theory (1860-70's), and the Classical 3...Bc5 Variation was sometimes named after him - but if it was for antiquity, the name "Lucena Variation" could be claimed (Spain, xvth-century)
