Dec-27-14  Knight13: <French Defense: Advance. Euwe Variation (C02)> Alas, even though Josef Noa outplayed the winner of Frankfurt 1887 (ahead of Zukertort, Burn, Blackburne, Weiss, Gunsberg, Schiffers, von Bardeleben, Englisch, young Tarrasch, etc.), George Mackenzie, in the same tournament with this opening it was not enough to get the opening named after him. Kind of like a Master outplaying a 2750+ today with an unnamed opening variation only for it to be named after a Super GM years in the future just because he, by virtue of being a much stronger player, is able to use it much more successfully. Not exactly fair, but I could be wrong.
May-28-16  kingfu: Good point. Although I see a Noa Variation in the Nimzo Indian. 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4. Qc2

Is this the same Noa?
