Random Game #17 - Gajdos vs. Loewy, Sr - Barmen, Germany 1905

The Random Game feature at is a handy way to broaden your chess education. You never know what's going to pop up. You may see a famous classic, or maybe a subtle modernity, or maybe a true obscurity. You might even find a diamond in the rough that nobody else has spotted.

Opernhaus Barmen, Wuppertal, Germany 1905

Today's game took place in Germany in 1905 between Janos Gajdos and Leopold Loewy, Sr. In his Decisive Games in Chess History, Pachman says "The International Barmen Congress, 1905, brought together a greater number of masters and strong amateurs than any other event of that time."

After 40 moves the game seems pretty drawn. But the game isn't over yet. Probably too instructive for my own efforts, you'll want to look this over closely yourself.

If you enjoy the random game idea you can try it yourself here.
