Leopold Hoffer (geboren 1842 in Budapest) bearbeitete als Nachfolger von Weltmeister Steinitz diese seinerzeit berühmte Schachkolumne der "Country Gentlemen's Newspaper" bis zu sei­nem Tode (28.8.1913). Die Jahrgän­ge 1900-1903 hat das Publishing House Moravian Chess übrigens be­reits in den letzten Jahren herausge­geben. Inhaltlich bietet der Jahrgang 1904 mit seinen 51 Ausgaben im­merhin 308 Partien (zweispaltig in englischer Notation), 12 Partiefrag­mente, 53 Probleme und zahlreiche Nachrichten von Turnieren, Zwei­kämpfen und Mannschaftskämpfen bis hin zu Buchbesprechungen und verschiedenen Meldungen. Zu den Schwerpunkten der Berichterstat­tung gehören das doppelrundige Turnier von Monte Carlo [1. Maroczy vor Schlechter und Marshall] sowie das Rice-Gambit Turnier ebenfalls in Monte Carlo [1-2. Mar­shall und Swiderski, 3.Mieses], das große Turnier von Cambridge Springs [1. Marshall (13,0) vor den punktgleichen Janowski und Lasker (je 11,0)], der 14. Kongress des deutschen Schachbundes in Coburg [drei punktgleiche Sieger von Bar­deleben, Schlechter und Swiderski], das National Tournament in London [1. Napier (12,5) vor Teichmann (12,0) und Blackburne, Gunsberg, Shoosmith (je 11,0)], das British Championship Tournament [Sieger Atkins und Napier vor Blackburn], das Rice-Gambit Turnier in London [1. Teichmann (13,5) 2-3. Leonhardt und Napier (11,5)] und schließlich das weniger bekannte Thematurnier zum abgelehnten Königsgambit zum Jahresende in Wien bis zur 8.Runde, das Schlechter und Maroczy domi­nierten.

Ingesamt bietet der Jahrgang also ei­ne Fülle von Partien und Informatio­nen und was vor allem geschichtlich wertvoll ist, eben aus zeitgenössi­scher Sicht! Lediglich die Qualität der Diagramme lässt manchmal doch zu wünschen übrig.

Helmut Riedl, Rochade Europa 2/2007

Leopold Hoffer, born 1842 in Budapest, was a well-known columnist who edited his column from 1882 until his death in London 1913. So I think it is a splendid idea from Fiala to reprint the Field a fantastic chess magazine that covered every thing in chess from the local chess scene till world championship matches every thing and more is here in this facsimile print. Unfortunately the print is not always perfect and reading diagrams is sometimes a puzzle and that is a great pity of this interesting made publication. But as I said the book is great and for example I found in this magazine an exciting loss of the mysterious Miss Rudge; Garratt,JH (IRL) - Rudge,Mary miss (ENG) Ireland-England 1903 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7 5.e3 0-0 6.Nf3 b6 7.Bd3 Bb7 8.cxd5 exd5 9.Bxf6 Bxf6 10.h4 h6 11.g4 Be7 12.g5 g6 13.h5 Bxg5 14.Nxg5 Qxg5 15.Qe2 Nc6 16.f4 Qg3+ 17.Kd2 Nxd4 18.exd4 Qxf4+ 19.Qe3 Qxe3+ 20.Kxe3 g5 21.Nb5 c5 22.Nd6 Bc8 23.dxc5 bxc5 24.Rac1 c4 25.Nxc8 Rfxc8 26.Bf5 Re8+ 27.Kd4 Re2 28.Rc2 Rae8 29.Rxe2 Rxe2 30.Kxd5 Rxb2 31.a4 Ra2 32.Bd7 Rd2+ 33.Kc6 c3 34.Rc1 Rh2 35.Rxc3 Rxh5 36.a5 Rh4 37.Kb7 Rd4 38.Bc6 1-0 but as all games in this book you must have some knowledge of the English notation. Between the lines I found an interesting circular from Dr.Edward Lasker who has conceived the notation of a Falkbeer Gambit Tourney, containing the following conditions: Competitors to be international champions and clubs of first class strength. Entrance fee of 50 dollars to be paid to Mr.L Vino,treasurer of the Manhattan Chess Club,treasurer of the tourney.Play to be in sections of six or seven units.Prizes to be given for best score,best score made by a master,best score made by a club,best analyses of the gambit,and best annotated game.A book is to be printed containing all the games,with notes by the players.Time limit ,seventy two hours for each move.A date in October is suggested for commencement of play.Several players of international repute have signified their intention of participating. That time in 1904 50 dollars must have been a fortune so I can not imagine that this tournament ever had a chance to start. Does anybody have an idea of this tournament ever started? Conclusion: Fascinating!With kind permission of the author John Elburg (www.chessbooks.nl)
