Feb-25-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: The final position is somewhat funny. F7-pawn can't move due to pin and any other defense fails. Plus: white's moves 9 & 10 are very entertaining.

after 8...g5?

<Höfer> probably expected <9.Bg3> and got harshly disappointed:

9.f4! gxf4 (9...gxh4 10.fxe5 wouldn't be better)

10.Rxf4!! exf4

13.Bh8!

mate on g7 can't be avoided, so black resigned

PS: question to the composers ... what is a <Bristol> and how did this <thematic idea> (?) got its name? thx in advance

  Infohunter: <myschkin: PS: question to the composers ... what is a <Bristol> and how did this <thematic idea> (?) got its name? thx in advance>

I am no composer but, as my user name indicates, I do have a bit of information at my disposal.

According to my source, which is Hooper and Whyld's _Oxford Companion to Chess_, 1987 edition, a Bristol Clearance Theme, or simply Bristol Theme, runs as follows: "Piece A is moved along a line; another line-piece, B, is moved to this line and then along it towards piece A, to or beyond the square occupied by that piece initially."

To be sure, this abstract definition sounds rather like something you might hear from some college math professor. Not to worry: The editors supply us with some concrete information:

White to play and mate in three. (Frank Healey, 1861) [bad FEN: 8/1n3Np1/1N4Q1/1bkP4/p1p2p2/P1P2R2/3P2PK/B3R4]

(Note: For some reason I cannot get the FEN to produce a diagram for this post, but you get the idea.)

We are informed that this is one of a set that won first prize at the Bristol Tourney for composers in 1861, hence the name.

The solution, incidentally, is 1.Rh1 Be8 2.Qb1 Bb5 3.Qg1.

I hope this answers your questions satisfactorily, <myschkin>. Pity it took so long.

Dec-14-10  Shams: <Infohunter> The problem lies in the last parameter of your FEN, which has nine terms. Instead of B3R4 do you mean B3R3<?> That would yield:

...which looks right.

  Infohunter: You're right, <shams>; that works. And I thought I'd checked and rechecked myself too. Oh well, what can I say....

Apr-05-11  SBC: This game is Adolf Rosentreter (1844-1920) vs. Leopold Hoffer.
May-22-11  estrick: This game is in "Chess Openings Theory & Practice" by I. A. Horowitz, p. 38, in the chapter on Giouco Piano.

It's utterly amazing to me how kicking White's bishop a second time leads to Black's swift and immediate destruction.

May-22-11  estrick: Black also got crushed after playing 9 ...d5 instead of 9 ...gxf4

Rothermel vs P Bauer, 1986

  Infohunter: <morfishine> Thank you; to be complete I must add that that is much more of a tribute to my book collection than it is to my problem-solving skills.
