Richard Teichmann was born December 24, 1868, which is also true of Emanuel Lasker. He died June 25, 1925. This German player was one of the best in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As late as 1921, he held Alekhine to a draw in a match. The game shown is from Teichmann's match with Rudolf Spielmann. Spielmann was born May 5, 1883 in Vienna and died August 20, 1942 in Stockholm. In the Teichmann-Spielmann match, there were six games with no draws. Teichmann started with the white pieces and since White won the first five games, he was ahead 3-2. Then Teichmann won game six with black and won the match 4-2. The following game is from round three. The opening was the Kan Variation of the Sicilian Defense and could be taken for a recent modern way to play chess.
