Russian Chess Master <Sergey Fedorovich Lebedev> (1868-1942)

Sergey F. Lebedev - Sergei L. Tolstoy
Russia, corr. 1900
Queen's gambit Accepted [D25]

18...Bxe5?? (18...Qh4 is sounder)

19.dxe5 Qxe5+ 20.Kf1 Qxh2 21.Bxg6?

An unwise attempt to counter attack, presumably overlooking the strength of the reply.

21...Qh3+! (21...hxg6?? 22.Rxg6+ and mates)

22.Ke2 Qe6+?! (a risking winning attempt. 22...fxg6 23.Rxg6+ Kf7 is about equal.)

23.Be4+ Kh8

24.Qc3+? (White misses the decisive brilliancy 24.Bh6!! Qxh6 25.Rh1)

24...f6 25.Bh6 Rf7 26.Rg4 (26.Rgd1! and white still stands somewhat better as the bishop cannot be captured yet.)

26...Nd7 27.Rcg1 Ne5! (Tolstoy junior shows some class; he spurns the bishop and plays for more complications.) 28.Qa5?! (Flashy, but not the best defence.) 28...Rfa7 29.Rg8+? (29.Rg7! was the last chance.) 29...Rxg8 30.Qxa7 Ng6 31.Rg4 dxe4 32.Rxe4 Ne5 33.Qd4 Nxf3!? 34.Kxf3 Qh3+ 35.Ke2 Qxh6 36.Re6 Qh5+ 37.Kd2 Qg5+ 38.Kc3?Qc1+ 39.Kd3? Qd1+ 0-1

  Tabanus: <myschkin> That game is for the time being placed under Sergei Fedorovich Lebedev
May-13-11  myschkin: . . .

Thank you <Tabanus> .. nice surprise while blind flying through the cgverse!

Black: (Sergius) Sergei Tolstoy


".. I have lived through much, and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, <some deep chesstalk> - such is my idea of happiness. .."

(from the short novel "Family Happiness" by Leo Tolstoy )

<*> red-hot update

Aug-26-12  Karpova: Some of Lebedev's successes:

1901: +1 =3 -0 against Georg Marco and +1 -1 against Von Scheve

1902: Blindfold +1 =1 -0 against Von Bardeleben

1908: St. Petersburg Chess Club Champion ahead of Von Freymann, A. Romanovsky and Evtifeev (after 2 rounds replaced by Helbach) winning every mini-match also.

Won many St. Petersburg Club tournaments and beat Chigorin between 1899 and 1900 in 3 tournament games.
