Feb-05-18  zanzibar: There is mention of a Kunath in 2nd class Berlin chess club 26th anniversary tournament winter play in DSZ N5 v56-57 (May 1902) p151

Could be the same player.

Feb-06-18  sneaky pete: <Zanzibar> All the Blackmar Gambit games here preceding those by Blackmar himself (from the 1880ies) are misdated and were probably played (around) a century later. I found another game between E. Kunath (GDR) and N. Grant (USA) with the Blackmar-Popiel-Gambit (4.Bg5 ..) Kunath System (4... Bf5 5.Qe2 ..) where black tried 5... Nbd7. The game is undated (in Gerhart Gunderam, Supertaktik modernen Gambitspiels, 1980) but was played in the final of the first Blackmar Gambit World (Postal) Tournament, around 1970.

This 19th century Kunath is very likely the same as the 20th century Emil Kunath.

Feb-06-18  zanzibar: Yes, <sneaky>, I tend to agree. I'm made a few comments on some of the other games, tracing their likely heritage to a B-D Gambit write-up by Schiller.

Curious that the games got re-dated.

Jun-22-18  sneaky pete: Emil Kunath is the author of <Der "Sneiders-Angriff" im Lemberger Gegengambit>, published in 1986. That's about 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 e5 4.Qh5 .. etc. The games with Grava and Schneider that we find here appeared in this booklet, labelled as private correspondence game (Privatfernpatie). Unfortunately Kunath gives no dates for any of his illustrative games, but I bet they were played much later than 1866 or 1872.

  whiteshark: <sneaky pete> All remaining three games belong indeed to Emil Kunath and they have been played in 1970/1980ties as you can see from the sources I have posted within each game.
