Mieses vs Teichmann
[Event "match"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Mieses"] [Black "Teichmann"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "A00"] [Opening "Mieses: 1...d5"] {37. TEICHMANN (1868-1925) Although Teichmann was generally admitted to be an outstandingly capable player he seldom achieved the great things that were expected of him. The explanation was certainly not a lack of talent or of theoretical knowledge, but almost entirely in a casual attitude towards chess competition. Teichman was lazy and all to ready to draw, but a mighty man if he ran into difficulties} 1. d3 d5 2. Nd2 e5 3. e4 c6 4.

Perhaps Mieses had in mind the game Teichman-Burn, Osten 1905, in which Teichmann was virtually presented with the Exchange, yet lost in the end by dilatory play - assuming that game would win itself (he must have forgotten Tarrasch's dictum that there is nothing so hard to win as a won game)} 24...
