12/14/2017 - Siegbert Tarrasch vs Romberg, Nuremburg 1893

  • #161

    About three weeks ago, IM Silman wrote an article entitled, "Were Players in the 1800s Terrible?" One game by one player cannot answer this question, but the puzzle, a mate in 9 with an early queen sacrifice, tells us that Tarrasch was brilliant in this game in 1893.

    Silman is over-estimated! Ok, he sold a lot of books, but look at his lessons that are available here: There are so many errors!! He is not in charge to judge about any genious of former centuries.

    Telling nothing always twice is the best proof that copper is not at all golden.

    If 3. .. Kg6 then 4. Rf6+! Kxf6 5. Bg5+ Kg6 6. Ndf4#

    I confused the phases of the solution. I meant "If 5. ... Kg6".

    The move N*c7 was pretty tempting, but that wasn't the correct move. The correct answer is this:1. fxg7+ Kxg7 2. Qxh6+ Kxh63. Ne6+ Kh5 4. Ndf4+ Kh6 5. Ne2+Kh5 6. Rf5+ Bxf5 7. Ng3+ Kg68. exf5+ Kf6 9. Bg5#

    Cool bishop checkmate!!!

    For me the confusion was the number of other great options that were available, which would have led to victory but taken longer. The minds of the masters are beyond my comprehension.

    I agree!

    • I noticed something very strange in this position : After the move 1. fxg7+ Kxg7, Stockfish is marking the position with a score of +7.20 for White and proposes me to move the Queen on the h4 square as the best move. 
    • But then when I take the Knight with the Queen, it sees a Mate in 8!!!
    • SO it should have advised me that move, am I right ? Quite disturbing, does that mean Tarrasch saw a little deeper than actual computers do ? That sounds surrealist ! 

    Engines seems to have problems with many positions, especially closed ones. Try this combination below, really interesting one happy.png

    [Variant "From Position"]
    [FEN "1r3r2/4bpkp/1qb1p1p1/3pP1P1/p1pP1Q2/PpP2N1R/1Pn1B2P/3RB2K w - - 4 22"]

    22. Qf6+ Bxf6 23. gxf6+ Kg8 24. Ng5 h6 25. Rxh6 Rb7
    26. Bf2 Nxa3 27. Rg1 Nc2 28. Rg3

    And now we have mate in 3. How many moves ahead was Stockfish able to see this? wink.png
