Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-12-04  malbase: See the game in Alekhin-Tenner same year. The above game was played. The other game was not. This is my note to the other game: The above game never took place.
It appeared as a note to a Teichmann game in Alekhin's first volume, was indicated as being played in 1907. Tenner indicated to Herman Helms he did not know Alekhin in 1907. The first correction was made in 1925 by Herman Helms in the Brooklyn Eagle. The original game is listed in and is correct. The history of the actual played game was that a relative of Kernesky, the Russian Foreign Minister wanted the two to play in an off game. The Relative's name was Tereschtschenko. The game was played and ended in a draw. The game above was a post mortem analysis by Alekhin. For more commentary go to The Development of A Chess Genuis-100 Instructive Games of Alekhine by Fred Reinfeld, Dover Books, 1959. Tenner was a Berlin amateur who later was member of the Marshall Chess Club in Manhattan, New York. Reinfeld in 1948 met with Tenner. Following points were established:
1. No international event took place in Cologne, 1907. (The above game was originally dated 1907 by Alekhin). 2. The first time Alekhin played outside of Russia was in 1908 Dusseldor. 3. It was well known that Alekhin was in Cologne in 1911 for the Tarrasch-Schlecter Match. The other game listed in was Tenner's version. The above game is Alekhin's version. See also the game Alekhin-Teichmann, Berlin 1921 which started this who controversy.
