Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-12-14  Karpova: Annotations (condensed):

2.Qe2 <Chigorin redivivus.>

2...c5 <Recommended by Tarrasch. 2...Be7 is also very popular.>

5...Nf6 <If 5...Nd4 6.Qd1 followed by Ne2 and f4.>

8...Bd7 <Much better was d5.>

10...f5 <?>

11...exf5 <The intention was probably 11...Nd4 12.Qf2 Nxf5 which fails due to 13.Bxb7.>

12.Nd5 <Threatens exchange on e7 followed by Bxb7.>

13...Nd4 <13...g6 was necessary. If 13...h6 14.Qh5 hxg5 15.fxg5 Be5 16.g6.>

17...g6 <Or 17...Bc6 18.g6 Nf6 19.Nxf6+ Rxf6 20.Qh7+ Kf8 21.Bg5 and wins.>

19...Kf7 <The sad end!>

20...Ke6 <There was no rescue, e. g. 20...Ke8 21.Bg5 Qc8 22.Rae1 Nde6 23.Rxe5 dxe5 24.Nf6+ Rxf6 25.Bxf6 and wins.>

21.Bg5 <!>

22...Rxd8 <Sadly unavoidable; if 22...Rxh6 23.Nc7#.>

Feb-27-18  Jean Defuse: ...

the same player - Arvid Vait


Feb-27-18  hemy: <Jean Defuse> Absolutely, it is Arvid (Arvids) Vait (Wait) from Riga.

The "Rigashe Zeitung" 1912, September 8, p. 20:
"Im internationalen Amateurturnier das ebenfalls in Wilna stattfand, errang den ersten Preis (300 Rbl.) und Meistertitel Hromadka (Prag) mit 15 Point...

Von den baltischen Teilnehmern hat fich bloƟ der Dorpatenser Oehrn (10/19) gut gehalten, wahrend die Herren A. Wait (Riga) und Baron Ungern-Sternberg (Dorpat) schlecht abgeschnitten haben."

May-29-18  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Karpova's comment:
<About 13...Nd4 <13...g6 was necessary ...>>.

Not sure about the necessity of that move. If there was one absolutely necessary move in the game that WASN'T played, it has to be 14...Bxg5, since it would solidify black with equal game. On the other hand 14...h6 (actually played) was crucial partybreaker since it left g6-square undefended from which black never recovered.

May-29-18  ajile: This game made me laugh. The queen moves on the k-side are hilarious.


May-29-18  Castleinthesky: Vaits just a little too long.
