GAME 18

Mieses - Cohn

St Petersburg 1909


Vienna Opening

1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.g3 d5 4.exd5 Nxd5 5.Bg2 Be6 6.Nge2 Nc6 7.O-O Qd7 8.d4 O-O-O 9.dxe5 Nxc3


White:Mieses; Black:Cohn

Black has played strongly so far, and should now have continued with 9...Nxe5 followed by 10...h5 instituting a promising attack. By exchanging himself, he misses this slight opportunity.

10.Qxd7 Bxd7 11.Nxc3 Nxe5 12.Re1 f6 13.Ne4

After 13.Ne4 Black might have continued 13...Bc6 and 14...Bb4 etc. The "hole" at White's f3-square is not without danger and Black is favourably developed. )

1/2 - 1/2
