Stolzenberg cleared up a mystery. Alekhine wrote that in 1916 he suffered a contusion of his spine and for months was confined to bed in the hospital at Tarnopol and playing blindfold chess proved to be a real salvation for him. At his request local players often visited him and he had the opportunity of playing many blindfold games. One of his opponents was named “Feldt.” Walter Korn, writing in American Chess Heritage, states that Stolzenberg claimed that “Feldt” was actually an intern at the hospital named Dr. Martin Fischer.
What was so rare about the Stolzenberg? When he died people found a large record collection in his home, but not a single chess book and he apparently never saved his scoresheets. How rare is that for a chessplayer??!!
In this game black played the K-Indian which at the time was only beginning to become popular. The history of the K-Indian is fascinating. At one time the QGD was was the “normal” defense and it had been analyzed nearly to death. In the 1948 World Championship match-tournament the K-Indian was only played twice! By the time the great Zurich 1953 event was played one third of the QP openings was a K-Indian. This game is very instructive and I encourage you to make sure you play through it. It offers some good basic instruction on the K-Indian Defense.
