Dec-19-13  DoctorD: I am still trying to figure out how one plays "solide" (solid), and "Abenteurliches" (adventurous) chess!
Dec-23-13  Karpova: <Landstrasser Schachbund (III/2, Radetzkyplatz 3, Cafe "Hungaria")> 4-player quadruple-round robin tournament 1915:

1. S R Wolf 9.0
2. Ernst Grünfeld 8.5
3. H Sauer 5.5
4. J Willmann 1.0

The decisive game was the last round encounter between Wolf and Grünfeld. Grünfeld was leading at a draw would have been sufficient, but Wolf beat him in 106 moves.


Wolf - Grünfeld 2.5-1.5 (+2 -1 =1)
Wolf - Sauer 2.5-1.5 (+1 -0 =3)
Wolf - Willmann 4.0-0.0
Grünfeld - Sauer 3.0-1.0 (+2 -0 =2)
Grünfeld - Willmann 4.0-0.0
Sauer - Willmann 3.0-0.0 (+2 -0 =2)

This was the first tournament ever for Willmann.

Jan-11-14  Karpova: <DoctorD: I am still trying to figure out how one plays "solide" (solid), and "Abenteurliches" (adventurous) chess!>

The expression <abhold> means something like averse, so Wolf's play is characterized as being solid and averse to everything adventurous, phantastic and daring.
