Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-08-14  Karpova: This game was played on board 2 (of 11), with Haida representing the Brno Chess Club and Takacs the Schlechter Chess Club. The match took place on 13 and 14 October 1923 in Brno, Czech Republic. The Brno Chess Club won 6.0-5.0.

Takacs considers 11.a3 a mistake, which loses the game (<Ein Positionsfehler, der die Partie kostet.>). The text move leads to a hole on the queenside, while Black has time to cover his only weakness. Takacs suggests <11.Na4!> instead.

Takacs calls 15.d4 a very pretty and very far calculated ♙ sacrifice, which Black refutes by declining it.

16.b5 loses a ♙, but White didn't have anything better according to Takacs. Perhaps, 16.Bf4 or 16.e3 would have been better.

21.Be3 was not annotated, but why not 21.e3 Bc5 22.Bb4 ?

Takacs awards 23.Qd4 a <?>, saying that it loses another ♙. He gives no alternative, but 23.Nd5 may have put up more resistance.
