  Chessical: <Robert Palmers> This is very strange. Pirc is playing with Black and not with White in the photograph. Moreover, from the partially obscured sign his opponent probably is Ragozin. But looking at the demonstration board, its position matches this game and not Ragozin vs Pirc, 1935.
Sep-21-09  laskereshevsky: <R.P.> Yes, and the close-up player in the picture is Salomon (a.k.a. Salo) Flohr in the game vs. Viacheslav Ragozin...

Ragozin vs Flohr, 1935

I suppose he's thinking on his move 6...♙e6 just after 6. ♘h3 played by white

Premium Chessgames Member
  roberts partner: The photo is Ragozin v Flohr, the demo board is the queen's side podition of Pirc v Lilienthal who are presumably seated on the next table.
Sep-22-09  vonKrolock: Yes, round and position -somewhere between <8.cxd4> and <9...0-0> corresponds - to the very moment of that remarcable caption from the <"Moravsk√Ĺ ilustrovan√Ĺ zpravodaj">s cover - But where is the white ♕'s ♘ ?! quick supposiion - Pirc played <10.♘b1-c3>, and the ♘ was removed from 'b1', and, before that it could be placed in 'c3, the photo was shot ... !?

  roberts partner: The knight may still be on b1 but very faint in the photo because it is a light square. If the demo board knight was en route from b1 to c3 you would expect to see a human hand transporting it....
