  offramp: Every now and then the Caro-Kann gets taken apart like a Cortina Mark II at a Teddy Boy Festival.

Often Black's downfall is caused by a weakness of e6 or g6 or both.

Beliavsky vs Larsen, 1981, Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997, Van der Wiel vs Karpov, 1987, Kasparov vs Karpov, 1988, Kavalek vs Huebner, 1979.

This is one of the earliest examples.

Black should have been trying to castle kingside as quickly as possible. But he played 11....h6 and he then found that his world was rocked by 12. Rxe6+!+-.

The awesome metaphor aside, I wouldn't call this game an example of "Caro-Kann being taken apart", because this is not the way at all to play the classical variation of the C-K.

  offramp: This is the position after 9...e6:

It occured as recently as A Muzychuk vs D Charochkina, 2016, which was a blitz game that White won; also (women again, oddly) in T Gara vs M Socko, 2016. That was a draw. So people still play the way M Grinberg played at least for 9 moves.

<Count Wedgemore>, welcome to chessgames.com! I have been here a while and I have enjoyed almost every minute of it. It is probably the best site on the internet if you like chess. I really think you'll have a good time here.

This game was played In "Emanuel Lasker" Tel Aviv chess club anniversary tournament. (http://jewishchesshistory.blogspot....). There is also a picture of Yosef Dobkin playing Moshe Czerniak

The tournament started in January 1944 and ended on April 1st, 1944. The winner Yosef Porat (Yosef Foerder) finished with 12/13, 2nd was Israel Rabinovich-Barav 10/13. Dobkin and Shlomo Smiltiner shared 3-4 place with 9.5/13. Dr. M Grinberg was 5th with 8/13.

Source: The Tel Aviv newspaper in Hebrew "Davar",April 4th, p.3 and "Davar", April 12, 1944 p.3.

The "Emanuel Lasker" chess club was founded in 1939. In 1944 with a membership of 300 players it was the largest in the Middle East. 50 tables were occupied by players from 5 pm to 8 pm every evening.

  WorstPlayerEver: If after 12. Rxe6 Black takes the Rook ... fxe6, then 13. Qg6+ and Black loses the Queen. According to Analysis ☺

  sachistu: <hemy> Do you know if M. Grinberg played in the 1940 Palestine chp (at Tel-Aviv)?

The British Chess Magazine, 1940 (p 376-378) has 4 games from the Palestine chp. However, BCM listed the name Grünberg (no first name or initial). I'm wondering if this might be an incorrect spelling.

BCM also had 2 games featuring a player called 'Kniascher'. I suspect this was I.Y. Kniazer (a spelling you identified in another kibitz). I have seen the name listed as I.J. Kniazer and Kniajer

<Do you know if M. Grinberg played in the 1940 Palestine chp (at Tel-Aviv)?>

"דבר" ("Davar"), April 25, 1940: At 1st day of Passover in club "Emanuel Lasker" Tel Aviv started big chess competition with more then 50 players participating.
In the masters tournament for Eretz Israel (Palestine) championship participating: Ferder, Kniazer, Dobkin, Weill, Dr. Gringard, Aharoni, Smiltiner and Grinberg. (Yosef Porat = Heinz Ferder)

<player called 'Kniascher'> His name is Kniazer.

Dec-25-20  N.O.F. NAJDORF: @ sachistu:

Grinberg is a corruption of Grünberg.

The Israeli grandmaster Yehuda Grinfeld's name has sometimes been rendered Grünfeld, which is the original spelling.

By the way,the Austrian grandmaster Ernst Grünfeld was not Jewish and was indignant when the Gestapo, obviously thinking that he was, arrested him.
