|Nov-04-18|| ||Jean Defuse: ...
<Tabanus> ... it exist no indications, about H. Mannee's chess activity after WWII... however 'old' chess talents are always interesting - <thanks for your help!>
|Nov-04-18|| ||Tabanus: <Jean Defuse> You're welcome. Sorry I could not find out more, I think <Stonehenge> could have helped but he's gone for now.|
I just checked the FIDE Women's World Chess Championship (2015) knock-out event for Game Type and found that all 61 playoff games (out of 201 games in total, so almost 1/3) were dubbed as Classical. However, 53 games are Rapid, 6 games are Blitz, and 2 games are Armageddon. Consequently, I sent 61 correction slips today on this one event.
Only the top of the iceberg I'm afraid, but at least the Women's World Championship (2017) appears to be Ok. Now I wonder if the ongoing Women's World Championship KO (2018) will require another 60 correction slips.
|Nov-04-18|| ||Tabanus: Yikes, I now see there are about 50 more slips to be sent on the FIDE Knock-out Women's World Championship (2012) as well.|
I'll look no further (for now). These KO's clearly must affect the stats.
|Nov-04-18|| ||Sargon: <Re: Correction Slips> We apologize for the delays in this area, and are beginning to process the backlog. All will be current soon...|
|Nov-05-18|| ||Tabanus: <Sargon> Great.|
I wonder if CG Editors could have access also to Game Type (Classical, Rapid, Blitz, Armageddon)? That should save some slips.
|Nov-05-18|| ||MissScarlett: <All will be current soon...>|
About time. What about the game submissions?
|Nov-11-18|| ||MissScarlett: <It's because of no exact date for games 2 & 3, so the sorting puts them first.>|
An obvious fix would be to allow tournament collections to have an ordering facility that would override sorting by date.
<Tab>, have a look at: O C Brett
I tried but he's always just <O.C.>, although it seems he had a nephew named <Oscar>, so that may be a pointer.
|Nov-11-18|| ||Tabanus: Definately Oscar C. Brett (1863-1947), but I cannot find the middle name. Possibly Cox, his mother's maiden name was Martha S. Cox.|
|Nov-11-18|| ||zanzibar: <<MissS> An obvious fix would be to allow tournament collections to have an ordering facility that would override sorting by date.> |
|Nov-15-18|| ||Chessical: Game Collection: Donner - Euwe Championship Match has been submitted for voting.|
This was a ten game match for the Dutch championship after Donner had snatched the crown from under the ex-world champion's nose.
|Nov-15-18|| ||Tabanus: "Match" will be added so it will end up with "Donner - Euwe Championship Match Match". Why not Event =|
"Donner - Euwe Dutch Championship"
|Nov-15-18|| ||sneaky pete: <Chessical> The Donner vs Euwe match was hosted by <Dagblad Het Binnenhof>, which at the time had a building at the Prinsegracht in the centre of The Hague. |
Dagblad simply means daily newspaper. Het Binnenhof (Inner Court) is not a district but a street in the centre of The Hague. Dutch parliament is located there, but the newspaper with the same name never was. Their best effort was Buitenhof (Outer Court).
|Nov-15-18|| ||Retireborn: <Chessical> Thanks for doing this collection.|
I think that "bestrewed" is not the right word, probably it should be bestrode or bestrid. And as it's clearly a reference to the Shakespeare quote in Julius Caesar, probably a capital C for "colossus".
|Nov-15-18|| ||zanzibar: Great link/photo <sneaky pete>.|
|Nov-16-18|| ||Tabanus: <Sargon: <Re: Correction Slips> We apologize for the delays in this area, and are beginning to process the backlog. All will be current soon...>|
Why exactly? What do you want to achieve?
|Nov-17-18|| ||OhioChessFan: <On the ground floor, windows were large demonstration boards for the spectators milling on the pavement.> |
I think “…milling around” would be better.
<treated it as was a national event>
Dele “was”. Add a comma after “event”.
<Euwe as the ex-world champion still considered himself as the premier Dutch player.>
I admittedly like commas a lot more than most everyone else. I think a comma after “Euwe” and “champion” would improve this.
< He had bestrowed the Dutch chess world as a Colossus for three decades.>
“presided over” would be better than “bestowed”.
That quotation mark should be dele.
Should be “continued” to keep a consistent verb case vis a vis “was modest”.
"Sixth game decisive for the match. Dr Euwe's brilliant victory is another point towards the title. Donner completely lost after 22 moves.>
There is no closing quotation mark.
<(From our special reporter) The Hague, Jan 3. - In his column Donner yesterday>
This citation probably should have quotation marks.
"A duplicate solution," said Euwe, smiling after the game, "but I wanted somewhat more ..." The continuation was not that difficult anymore and was therefore found in many different versions by the experts. >
There is a closing quotation mark down about note 11. I assume it should start with “The continuation…”, or else the quotation marks after “somewhat more” should be deleted.
<(14). "Utrechtsch Nieuwsblad, Dutch newspaper, 5th January 1956.>
Needs a closing quotation mark.
Off to bed.
|Nov-18-18|| ||MissScarlett: <On the ground floor, windows were large demonstration boards for the spectators milling on the pavement.>|
Shouldn't this be <On the ground floor windows, were large demonstration boards for the spectators milling <aboot> on the pavement.>?
|Nov-18-18|| ||Sally Simpson: ***
For the benefit of the spectators milling about outside, the ground floor windows displayed demonstration boards.
The 12 year old Tim Krabbe was paid 5 guilders a day to update these boards. He celebrated each draw, the longer the match went on, the more money he made. (almost certainly not true, but add it in as it just might be.)
|Nov-19-18|| ||Retireborn: I have a question about the game
Rubinstein vs Marshall, 1912
Donaldson & Minev have this as the last (17th round) game, whereas other sources (Chessbase, <TheFocus> quoting The Year-Book of Chess) have it as the 16th round, with Rubinstein drawing with Teichmann in the last round.
Is there any confirmation either way?
|Nov-19-18|| ||Sargon: Ladies and gentlemen:
Two Alekhine - Teichmann games were somehow assigned to the Women's World Championship KO (2018) erroneously:
Teichmann vs Alekhine, 1921
Alekhine vs Teichmann, 1921
I've removed them from hence and the games' event fields are currently set as "Teichmann - Alekhine Match". I just wanted to advise the Editors, thinking that perhaps there may been some activity with these games recently with respect to tournament names or id's.
Is this the right place to post this message...
|Nov-19-18|| ||MissScarlett: The <Yorkshire Post> of August 5th, <from our correspondent>, confirms it was Marshall then Teichmann.|
Teichmann had to play off his adjourned games with Przepiorka and Rubinstein the following day, so it's possible this was a source of confusion.
|Nov-19-18|| ||Retireborn: <MissS> Many thanks for that! I will give the Teichmann-Rubinstein game a little more attention, although on a first play through I don't think Rubinstein missed an absolutrely clear win.|
|Nov-19-18|| ||MissScarlett: <were somehow assigned>|
What does this mean? Haven't you just uploaded these games? Where did they come from?
Existing versions of these games are in the DB:
Teichmann vs Alekhine, 1921 (old) vs. Teichmann vs Alekhine, 1921 (new?)
Alekhine vs Teichmann, 1921 (old) vs. Alekhine vs Teichmann, 1921 (new?)
|Nov-20-18|| ||Tabanus: <Annie> Thanks for updating the Danzhou names. I think the Women's WCC's will be next but I'll try to cut you some slack :)|
The Norwegian Championship (2018) is now also complete (more or less), thanks. <However>, no less than four players (Arvola, Ostenstad, Moen and Groenn) are under two different names. That's four more slips again.
Atle Grønn, has CG started to accept æ, ø and å? His main page is Atle Groenn.
|Nov-20-18|| ||Tabanus: <Teichmann vs Alekhine, 1921 (old) vs. Teichmann vs Alekhine, 1921 (new?)>|
On the "old" one, 16.f3 was added this year (to judge from the Editor Notes). So perhaps the "new" one was left behind? Earlier, many games had an "alternative game score" but that I have not seen recently. Perhaps the alternative scores are now duplicate games again (with different score).
