Nov-17-05  DeepBlade: Nice Queen trap,

11. ...Qc6 is the only move that keeps the Queen alive, but it loses to the 12.Ne7+ fork.

  FSR: <chessamateur: Didn't he (Adolf Albin) die in 1920? Why does he have game attributed to him from 1922?>

Good question. The Oxford Companion to Chess, Golombek's Encyclopedia of Chess, The Encyclopedia of Chess (Anne Sunnucks), and An Illustrated Dictionary of Chess (Edward R. Brace) all say he died in 1920, as chessamateur said. Byrne J. Horton's Dictionary of Modern Chess says he died in 1915. Good game for a dead guy.

Mar-20-08  frank124c: Aactually Adolf Albin did die in 1920. He came back from the dead just to play this game.
Aug-23-08  TheTamale: <frank124c: Aactually Adolf Albin did die in 1920. He came back from the dead just to play this game.>

That reminds me... a while back, someone was claiming to be playing games with a long-deceased grandmaster. I can't remember who the player or the dead grandmaster was.

Sep-04-08  TheTamale: I remember who the (alleged) grandmaster was: Geza Maroczy (sp?). He was the dead one... still can't remember who the live one was.
Dec-09-08  YoungEd: The live one was Viktor Korchnoi. Korchnoi won. I forget the name of the psychic who played Maroczy's moves.

  tpstar: Tuesday puzzle after 10 ... Ba5.

The database has 18 examples of 5 ... Bb4+ against the Danish Gambit, and White won all 18. This miniature is the shortest to date.
