Feb-20-07  paladin at large: Gruenfeld misjudged his attack here but do you mean to tell me this is the only game Bogo ever won on the black side of a Bogo-Indian defense?
Jun-18-07  suenteus po 147: What's the story behind this game? Bogoljubov never participated in the Marienbad 1925 international tournament (though Gruenfeld did) yet here is this game from the same year the tournament was held. An exhibition game perhaps?
Jun-18-07  sneaky pete: B and G both played in Breslau, 24th DSB Kongress, July/August 1925. With 12 participants in a round robin, this database has 10 Bogoljubov games from that event, his win against Grünfeld is missing. Draw your own conclusion.
Jun-18-07  suenteus po 147: <sneaky pete> I gotcha. Thanks.

It is from 24. DSB Kongress 1925, round 5.

  Phony Benoni: The confusion over the game is an old one. American Chess Bulletin, November 1925,p. 158 also mistakenly attributes it to Marienbad..

There were several other major events in 1925, such as Baden Baden and Moscow. ACB scattered games from these events through several issues, using headlines such as "Games from Marienbad", "Game from Baden Baden", and so on. It's quite possible editor Hermann Helms simply grabbed the wrong headline for this game.

By the way, ACB gives a couple of more moves at the end: <24..exf3 25.Rfd1 Nd4>. These moves also appear in Deutsche Wochenscachh for 1925, p. 365.
