KARL BEHTING
(born Oct-27-1867, died Mar-28-1943, 75 years old) Latvia

[what is this?]

Latvian spelling Kārlis Bētiņš. Karl Behting was a Latvian chess master and composer of studies. A member of the formidable correspondence team of the Riga Chess Club, he was co-editor with Paul Kerkovius of the Baltische Schachblätter from 1902-1910.

He tied for 3rd-5th at Riga 1899 (the 1st Baltic Congress, Robert Behting won), took 3rd at the Riga 10th Winter Tourney 1900 (won by T Muller), won the Riga Chess Club Jubilee 1900/01 over Piers Bohl and Kerkovius, shared 1st with Karl Wilhelm Rosenkrantz, Wilhelm Sohn and Wilhelm von Stamm at Dorpat (Tartu) 1901 (the 2nd Baltic Congress), and tied for 3rd-4th at Reval (Tallin) 1904 (Bernhard Gregory won).

After World War I, Behting finished 3rd at the 1st Latvian Championship in Riga 1924, behind Hermanis Karlovich Mattison and Fricis Apsenieks . Behting played for Latvia in 1st unofficial Chess Olympiad at Paris 1924 (+7 –4 =2); his team took 4th place, and he tied for 4-7th in the Consolation Cup (individual; Karel Hromadka won).

The Latvian Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f5) is named in honor of Behting and other Latvian analysts who studied it extensively in the early 20th century. In response to an Albert Becker article that Behting judged to be dismissive about the Latvian Gambit, Behting published and analyzed one of his own games in order to defend the gambit: Ilyin-Zhenevsky vs K Behting, 1921.

  beatgiant: <jessicafischerqueen> I think that is a 'K', not an 'R', by compairing with other contexts for that letter ("Klub..." and "Kubbel") and different letters used where an 'R' is expected ("Rigaer"). Then the name would be J. Koehler.

Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: <jessicafischerqueen> I also think the initial might be an 'I' instead of a 'J', because further down we see what looks like the same letter in the context of 'In der VIII Runde...' and 'In der IX Runde' where it clearly must be an 'I'.

So the name, take three: "I. Koehler."

I had hoped to find some hints in the following editions, but even with the announcement of the final results of the club championship no full first name was mentioned. *

...>

Since the chess game was posted by <Jean Defuse>, he can perhaps serve with a source. But I hereby state my doubts:

Robert* (as white) had won the game against his brother Karl at that time (April 14th, 1899).

Source: Baltische Schachblätter Nr. 7, p.428, game #141 ; crosstable on p. 383

According to that the game has originally been published in the <Rig.[?] Rundschau> .

* and also the tournament, as mentioned above (<The youngest Roberts Betins (1875-) won the Baltic Chess Champions Title in the first Baltic Chess Congress tournament in 1899, but he did not participate in tournaments later.>)

<whiteshark> hmm that is useful information, and reason enough for holding off on uploading that game.

Is it possible that the pgn has the colors reversed?

I will try to find it in the Latvian periodicals database.

I'm pretty sure that the <Rig. Rundschau> is the <Rigasche Rundschau>.

Yeah, I guess so. However, I also found the spelling "Rigaer Rundschau" in the Baltischen Schachblättern, and was not sure if it was another newspaper.

  jessicafischerqueen:

<whiteshark> Beautiful!

Except for this- we all need to do due diligence to check what the existing spelling of every player is at cg.com. We don't want to give <Stonehenge> a heart attack.

Robert Betins

And the one game he played is from the same event even: Robert Betins vs J Zabludowski, 1899

So before submitting, if we want to change the spelling of Robert Behting we should discuss that in the Bistro.

Months ago I suggested changing <Karl Behting> to <Karis Betins>, but one of our members explained that when he was an active player, he used the German spelling.

I would vote for changing Robert's name to <Behting>. In this 1895 game, for example, the name of both Johan and Robert is listed as <Behting>:

http://www.periodika.lv/periodika2-...

At any rate, this has to be decided before submitting.

  jessicafischerqueen:

Not to mention, <Robert Betins> is a hybrid spelling.

If we wanted to use the Latvian spelling, it should be <Roberts Betins>.

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <jessicafischerqueen> You are right that the spelling of the names of the three brothers - one way or the other - should be uniform.

Great overview of you about it also in the BiBi!

I was looking for a LATbase, but I ended up at the RUSbase, which has updated a lot during the last days and months at the historical tournaments. --> http://al20102007.narod.ru/nat_tour...

There are also some games of the 1st Baltic Chess Congress of 1899 (9 games). --> http://al20102007.narod.ru/nat_tour... (There is a new, 3rd spelling of Behting's name ;))

It also says/confirms that K Behting vs K Rosenkrantz, 1899 was indeed played by Robert, as <Stonehenge> mentioned above. But I wanted to search through the Schachblätter for it.

Excellent work <whiteshark>!

Did you send in a correction slip for K Behting vs K Rosenkrantz, 1899 yet?

Yes <rusbase> has some improvements, but not being able to download any of the USSR Team events is not one of them. All of the zip downloads are currently frozen on them.

-Analysis by Karl Behting

#######################

The problem is that although Behting himself published this game in <Saha Maksla Nr.27 (10.05.1938)>, he did not supply the event, site or date. I have been looking in Di Felice and online, but I have been unable to find the year this game was played.

If we could find the year and publish the game, it could please those interested in the history of opening theory, or Latvian chess history. At present, our bio reports that Behting analzyed the Latvian Gambit, but we have no games in which he actually plays it. If anyone can help me find the year this game was played, it would be greatly appreciated.

Behting's article is here- it is a spirited reply to an article by Albert Becker claiming that the Latvian Gambit is busted:

<whiteshark>, <steamed colleagues> Part two

Here is a translation of Behting's article in refutation of Albert Becker

##########################

'Latvian gambit' is not refuted!

- by Karlis Betins

In the columns of the "Wiener Schachzeitung" prof. Becker's article has a strong title- "Gambit's refutation", which proves the refutation of the "Latvian gambit".

The rickshaw <meaning weak evidence> is based on the game Trifunovich - Apsenieks played at the Stockholm Olympics. Here it should be said that prof. Becker has been heavily mistaken in his analysis and has been helped by Apsenieks, who has played poorly in the game. By making a few weak moves, Apsenieks gave Trifunovich the chance to take his hand and win. It is significant that prof. Becker, when writing such an important article, has gone so naughtily with this whole thing, as evidenced by the fact that he did not even notice a whole series of weak black moves (9, 10, and 11).

Let's look at this "historical" game now:
P Trifunovic vs F Apsenieks, 1937

<whiteshark> I can't possibly thank you enough for that invaluable information!

That is more than enough information now to publish the game.

Did you read the article? <Behting> was really steamed eh. I wonder if <Becker> ever read the refutation to his article?

  whiteshark: Becker has analysed a.m. P Trifunovic vs F Apsenieks, 1937 in the <Wiener Schach-Zeitung> (Vienna chess magazine), No. 6 (12. Febr.1938) on page 68-70. http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/a... (starts at the bottom of the page)

<I wonder if <Becker> ever read the refutation to his article?> All I know is that the <WSZ> stopped its publication six weeks (End of March 1938) later and Behting's article did not appear until early May of the year. Anyway, there will be no answer in there, if one exists at all...

<whiteshark> Thanks so much for your diligent research on the back story to <Behting's> response to <Albert Becker's> Latvian Gambit analysis.

I added your source and the game Ilyin-Zhenevsky vs K Behting, 1921 to the biography, so that readers will not miss out on this fascinating "Latvian Gambit" incident in Behting's story.

I made a few other minor additions in the bio. I have not yet made in line citations, but I have listed the sources I am looking at so far.
