GAME 37

Mieses - Teichmann

St Petersburg 1909


Two Knight's Defence

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.d4 exd4 5.O-O Bc5 6.e5 d5 7.exf6 dxc4 8.Re1 Be6 9.fxg7


White Mieses: Black Teichmann

The usual line of play is 9.Ng5 Qd5 10.Nc3 Qf5 11.Nce4 and now, after a novel idea 11...O-O-O 12.g4 Qe5 13.Nf3 Qd5 14.fxg7 Bxg4!

9...Rg8 10.Bg5 Be7 11.Bxe7 Kxe7


White: Mieses:;Black Teichmann

11...Qxe7 is also feasible; for after 12.Nxd4 Rd8 (not 12...O-O-O on account of 13.Nxc6)13.c3 Rxg7 14.Qa4 Kf8 15.Nxc6 Black would decide the game by 15...Rxg2 16.Kxg2 Qg5

12.Nbd2 Qd5 13.b3 cxb3 14.Nxb3 Rad8 15.Qe2 d3

If 15...Rxg7 16.Rad1 Rg4 17.g3  threatening 18.h3.

16.cxd3 Rxg7

After 16...Qxd3 17.Qb2 would be disagreeable to Black.

17.d4 Kf8 18.Rac1 Rg6 19.Rc3 a5 20.Qd2

20.Rc5 would be an immediately decisive mistake because of 20...Nxd4

It seems, he should have played 20.a4

20...a4 21.Nc5 Nxd422.Nxe6 Rxe6 23.Nxd4 Qxd4 24.Qc1 Rxe1 25.Qxe1 Qxc3
