[what is this?]
Vsevolod Alfredovich Rauser was Ukrainian champion in 1927 and joint champion in 1933. He finished 6th in the USSR Ch. of 1933. After 1937 ill health brought his playing career to an end but his theoretical contributions influenced play long after his death. There is a variation, the Sicilian, Richter-Rauzer (B60) that carries his name.

|Oct-16-05|| ||Knight13: Sicilian, Richter-Rauzer (B60). Named after him. Not a bad opening.|
|Jul-03-07|| ||Chess Carnival: From Mark Taimanov's 'Winning with the Sicilian':
<"Rauzer was obsessive as an analyst and his creative fantasy prompted him into surprising discoveries. He believed, from a subjectively paradoxical argument, that the advantage of the first move should wield a tangible advantage with an energetic treatment of the opening. It would seem that Rauzer wanted to demonstrate that in the initial chess position, as in a study, one could formulate the task - 'White to play and win!'"> (page 7)
|Jul-03-07|| ||Open Defence: he is also credited as the originator of the Rauzer Attack.. more commonly called the Yugoslav Attack now...|
|May-14-08|| ||eremite: He has contributed to the theory of various openings and endgames (B+P in particular). There will be a centenary since his birth this October. Some memorial articles or/and tournaments (thematic?) might follow|
|Oct-16-08|| ||brankat: Born a hundred years ago today!
Unfortunately, Mater Rauzer died quite young, otherwise he would have certainly made even more contributions to the game.
|Oct-16-09|| ||BIDMONFA: Vsevolod Rauzer|
|Oct-16-09|| ||Tabanus: Vsevolod Alfredovich Rauzer, also called 'Alfred' Rauzer, http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred...|

|Oct-16-09|| ||WhiteRook48: did Richter know Rauzer?|
|Sep-14-10|| ||rapidcitychess: My favorite quote from Mr.Rauzer
<1.e4! and White wins!>
Bronstein in Zurich 1953 tournament book was glad he did so, for he said <He[Rauzer]gifted us with many attacking systems in the Ruy Lopez, Sicilian,French, and Caro Kann!>
I know little of these. Could someone point these out?
|Oct-16-12|| ||rapidcitychess: Someday we will finally find the end of chess. And 1.e4 will probably be the winning line for white. |
So much for draw death...
|Oct-16-12|| ||Cibator: <Chess Carnival: (quoting Taimanov) It would seem that Rauzer wanted to demonstrate that in the initial chess position, as in a study, one could formulate the task - 'White to play and win!'>|
Perhaps he should have got together with Weaver Adams. If he'd ended up in the States, and lived long enough, he'd doubtless have acquired the nickname "Rebel".
|Oct-16-12|| ||TheFocus: If he had been T. Rauzer, I am sure his nickname would have been Trousers.|
Just a thought.
|Aug-14-13|| ||DoctorD: He was a lothario who knew every trick in the book, but somehow he failed to a rauzer.|
|Oct-16-15|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: So he thought his variation of the Sicilian would give White the Rauzer's Edge?|
|Oct-16-15|| ||eternaloptimist: <An Englishman> Good Evening: That's a nice pun! |
Rauzer was a strong player & it's a shame that he died at such a young age b/c he could've played a lot more brilliancies if he would've lived longer. Although CG's database doesn't have a single game of his where he played the white side of the Richter-Rauzer variation of the Sicilian. Although I've heard that he did introduce the plan of ♕d2 & 0-0-0 in this variation. Richter did actually play this variation however. It isn't as popular as it used to be but it's still relevant even today. The "scalps" of GM Korobov & GM Popov were taken this year! white wins in the Richter-Rauzer variation in the CG database this year.:
Although actually the 1st game in CG's database wasn't played by Richter.: N Mueller vs B Gregory, 1905
Richter did help to popularize it though.: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...
|Jan-09-17|| ||Fusilli: And who is Richter in the Richter-Rauzer variation of the Sicilian?|
|Jan-09-17|| ||TheFocus: Kurt Richter.|
|Jan-10-17|| ||disasterion: <Fusili> Kurt Paul Otto Joseph Richter|
|Jul-23-17|| ||Eagle41257: He perished in the siege of Leningrad|
