May-25-08  lost in space: one of the few losses of Junge. The critical point of the game was reached at move 15. Junge played 15...e5. This move is not fitting to the position (over-active) Better was 15...♘b6 16. axb5 cxb5 17. h4 ♘d5with advantage for Black.

21. ♗g4 is even better than the played ♗f3. The pin of ♗f4 (♖e5, ♕c7, ♔b8) is the winning factor.

  FSR: 14...Qa5 is slow. According to Komodo 9.02, after 14...c5!, White is fighting for survival, e.g.:

Jan-11-21  Chessist: This game was not played by Klaus Junge, but by Heinrich Reinhardt, first published in "Hamburger Nachrichten" of October 10, 1938, as reported in Kaissber 31, page 69.

  MissScarlett: What's said about its misattribution to Junge?
Jan-12-21  sneaky pete: The Kaissiber article by Peter Anderberg about Klaus Junge also has some details about Heinicke, who is described as a friend of the Junge family. In 1981 a collection of Heinicke games with his annotations was published (title "Kunst des Positionsspiels"), preceded by a biographical sketch of Heinicke written by Heinrich Fraenkel (also known as Assiac). In this introduction Fraenkel included the present game, apparently in error, as one played between Heinicke and Junge.

Anderberg suggests that a game with the Klaus Junge Variation may have been mistaken for a game with Klaus Junge.

In the "Hamburger Nachrichten" gane between Heinicke and Reinhardt moves 2 and 3 are reversed (2.d4 Nf6 3.c4 e6) compared to the version we have here.

Anderberg also mentions a 1937 game between Reinhardt (this time with the white pieces) and Heinicke where the same line was played up to 14.a4 ..., so it should be Reinhardt Variation instead of Szabo Variation. Szabo first played this against Euwe in the 1938/39 Hastings tournament.

  MissScarlett: I'll do the necessary.

Does Anderberg discuss if Junge played his variation before 1942? I suppose the suggestion is that Heinicke could have influenced Junge to take up the line.

Jan-13-21  sneaky pete: The Anderberg article is mainly about a small tournament in Dresden in January 1942, where Junge used this line successfully in games with Ullrich (present in this database) and Manfred Schäfer (who played the Szabo "novelty" 11.Qf3 ..). Anderberg gives no earlier Junge games with the Hamburger System, but suggests that Klaus may have researched and then adopted this line after seeing the Reinhardt and Heinicke games.

  MissScarlett: Does Anderberg give the Schäfer game? If so, you know what to do.

I should correct myself because Junge had played the line before 1942: R Palme vs K Junge, 1941
