  GrahamClayton: 7. ♔e3 is very brave, but 8. ♔xe4? is suicidal!

  sachistu: According to Tartakower and DuMont's book (100 Master Games of Modern Chess) this game was played in the Czech team championship (at Prague), 1950. The game, with Tartakower's notes are embedded in the game Prins-Penrose, Southsea 1950, p.9.

Tartakower questions 7.Ke3 saying Kg1 was more prudent. Interestingly <GrahamClayton> he makes no comment about 8.Kxe4!?

Actually, in the book, White resigned after 11...Bf5. Tartakower gave if 12.Kxf5 Qf4 and mate next or if 12.Ke3 Qf4+ 12.Ke2 Bg4 followed by mate. The continuation given here (12.Kf3...) is not mentioned. I have seen it in some online databases, but its source is unknown to me. I'll submit a correction slip for the venue and score.

  sachistu: Sorry for the fractured grammar! The sentence should read... The game,with Tartakower's notes, is embedded...

  Gypsy: According to Vesely's <My White-and-Black Memories>, this game was played in Czechoslovak Junior Championship, Chocen 1949.

The order of moves was slightly different: Queen checked first, then the d-pawn: <... 8...Qh4+ 9.g4 d5+ 10.Bxd5 Bxg4 ...>.

  sachistu: Thanks for the info <Gypsy>. Vesely should know, so it looks like Tartakower and DuMont's venue citation is inaccurate. This sometimes happens in these compendiums. I should point out the Tartakower book also has 8...Qh4+ 9.g4 d5+ 10.Bxd5 Bxg4... Note: another source listed it as Prague 1949 (again, apparently not quite correct). I can submit a correction slip listing your citation if that is ok with you.

  Gypsy: <sachistu> Of course, go right ahead. Thx!

  sachistu: <Gypsy> I missed your post earlier. Just submitted a correction slip for the venue and the move order.

  FSR: Kinda reminds me of K Williams vs K Haegg, 1928.
