Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-25-14  MountainMatt: This is the earliest "Richter-Veresov attack" game in the CG database (truly a "hyper-modern" opening!). It was played by neither Richter nor Veresov, but of course by hyper-modern opening specialist Savielly Tartakower. He went on to play this opening with white 10 times (per CG database), compared to 8 times for Veresov and only 4 for Richter. So, call me crazy and forgive my hair-splitting, but wouldn't it be a little more appropriate to call this the "Tartakower-Veresov attack"?
Jul-25-14  MountainMatt: Ok, strange - one page for the Richter-Veresov attack lists this as the earliest game, but another has quite a few games before it. So, I stand corrected on that, but the main point remains valid - the guy (Tartakower) who played this opening most (and began doing so before either Richter or Veresov) ought to have his name on it.
