Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-02-05  aw1988: Paulsen employs a KID! No doubt considered weak at the time.
Jul-02-05  azaris: Relatively little has changed, then.
Jul-02-05  aw1988: What?
Mar-29-16  zanzibar: This is given as the debut of the KID Four Pawns Attack by I.A. Horowitz.

Earlier games may have been played, but this might be considered the debut in a major tournament, played on a world-wide stage.

(Well, it should have been considered a world-wide stage - though finding this tournament's games published in non-German periodicals is near impossible.)

Mar-29-16  zanzibar: <Chess openings: theory and practice> I.A. Horowitz, Simon & Schuster, 1964
Mar-30-16  RookFile: What a deep thinker Paulsen was. I enjoy playing over his games.
