  Gypsy: Neumann was a bright future of Viennese chess but died young. His greatest success came at Coburg A, 1904: 1-2. Neumann & Vidmar(13.5/16), 3.Duras(12.5), 4.Spielmann(12), 5.Lange(11), 6.Nimzovich(10.5), ... Neumann then defeated Vidmar 3:2 in their match for the master title. Back then "IM" titles came with a main-tournament victory, GM titles came with a master-tournament victory.
Jul-20-07  Mibelz: Augustin Neumann (Austrian) died at the age of 26 in February 1906, so he did not play against Alekhine at Duesseldorf 1908. It was another Neumann (German) who took 9th there, tied for 4-6th at Munich 1908, and tied for 4-6th at Hamburg 1910.
Jul-21-07  vonKrolock: <Mibelz> According to the Düsseldorf 1908 book, he was <"M. Neumann - Budapest">; in Hamburg 1910, <"Neumann - Pest">

Jul-26-07  Calli: <vonKrolock> LOL - Now I know the origin of American country music: My wife left, I lost my job, my truck is gone, my dog is gone, etc.... didn't know it was 400 year old
Jul-26-07  vonKrolock: A game from the 16th Round in the 'Haupttrunier A' from Coburg 1904 aroused following question: When a player start his move removing one of the oponent's units, but, then take the wrong pieve to complete the move - what shall be the procedure: A correct move with the own piece touched is in order, or taking the oponent's piece with another that in fact can take it?!

The position is from a Game Neumann-Schneider, obviouslly with white to play:

Neumann played ♗b1 x ♕f6!!??

Jul-26-07  vonKrolock: <Calli> I knew the music, but not that it was a <Volkslied aus Wien> ...
Jul-26-07  vonKrolock: Well, the committee decided in this case, (but not unanimously), in accordance with the then valid rules, in Augustin's favour: The black Queen was removed from the board, so the only piece that could take her should complete the move: Bb2xf6 was the move.
Jul-26-07  Calli: A shame! Making him play with two bishops of the same color would have made the game famous.

Ach, du lieber Augustin,
Alles ist hin!

Weißer Läufer ist hin,
Alles ist hin, Augustin!

Jul-27-07  Calli: Only the ending From Vienna 1905 against Nimzowitsch is known:

Neumann drew brilliantly by sacrificing both pieces!

Und jetzt ist die erst recht Remis, da Schwarz trotz des mehrbesitzes der zwei Figuren nirgends durchbrechen kann. Source: Bachmanns Schachjahrbuch 1905 I. ½-½

Jul-27-07  vonKrolock: My source, of course, is Paul Schellenberg, in "Der Vierzehnte Kongress etc" .The Tschaturanga (Olms) edition of Coburg 1904 & Nürnberg 1906 - two congress-books bound together: The first gives three games from the Neumann-Vidmar 'Stichkampf'. Augustin won the match winning the sixth and last game, so I suppose that he could count on playing in the principal group next time - Well, as we know, when Prof. Dr. Gebhardt started his speech opening the Nuremberg Congress, he asked the participants to stand up for a moment in memoriam of <"der beiden verstorbenen Schachmeister und Mitglieder des Bundes, Staatsrat Dr. E. von Schmidt-Freiburg i Br. und <Neumann-Wien>, sowie des verblichenen hervorragenden Meisters H. N. Pillsbury.>
