  Honza Cervenka: This is a copy of Burn vs Tarrasch, 1907 with different order of moves in the opening.
Apr-09-14  Karpova: Are you certain about this being the correct move order? I see that the other game was deleted, but that may have been the correct one.

Franz Motzko gave the opening of a game between Burn and Tarrasch at Ostende, which commenced like that

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.O-O Nxe4 6.d4 b5 7.Bb3 d5 8.dxe5 Be6 9.c3 Bc5 10.Qd3

with Burn winning in 30 moves.

Tarrasch claimed that 10.Qd3 was from a correspondence game and not better than 10.Bd2. Motzko claims to have found the novelty 10.Qd3 in February 1903, thanks to Tarrasch's 'Dreihundert Schachpartien'. On page 122, Tarrasch commented on Tarrasch-WeiƟ after 10.Nbd2 0-0 11.Bc2 Nxd2 12.Qxd2 that this was better than taking with the ♗ as now Qd3 was possible. So Motzko tried Qd3 immediately and came up with 10.Qd3.
