Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-06-03  ChessPraxis: Mama! Huebner loses in 13 moves as White! White's usual response at move 8 is Na4 and he wins most of the time. Huebner must have just dropped the pawn and then given up.
Jan-07-03  PVS: Their 1980 Candidates match was really one for the books. I would wager that Kulla Tierchen has a few insights concerning its truncated finish.
Jan-07-03  magerk: he shouldnt have resigned.he'll get good play on the b file after Rb3 when B takes K is met by B take knight and the A pawn is taboo after Q takes Ral.
Jan-08-03  drukenknight: I think a lot of players would play 10 Rb3

  FSR: Well, at least Huebner learned from his mistake. A year later Korchnoi played the French against him, and this time Huebner lasted 5 moves longer: <Huebner vs Korchnoi, 1995;

  whiteshark: You never know when the Doc resigns, but here, in an equal position after only 13 moves? Maybe the notation is incomplete?
Sep-29-08  slomarko: the score can't be correct. 14.Qe3 seems completely playable.

  whiteshark: I just checked megabase. Hübner resigned after 13 moves. And possibly I found a reason: <after-effects>

Garmisch-Partenkirchen was a rapid tournament from 20-23th Oct with 4 game per day. It was used as preparation for the 1994 Chess Olympiad. Participants were the German and Swiss national teams plus Short, Adams, I.Sokolov and van Wely.

One round before (7th round) he lost vs Adams and resigned also at a very early stage: Adams vs Huebner, 1994.

This game (8th) was the last one of the second day.
