  zanzibar: <Tab> given your recent enthusiasm on the subject I thought that you'd want first crack on it.

  JoseCapablanca: Perhaps it would be possible to add to Eddie Wyckoff's profile that he writes a weekly column for the Albuquerque Journal (2017-) (the largest newspaper in New Mexico).

He also wrote a book called "Chess Puzzle Learning Levels."

  JoseCapablanca: Perhaps it would also be possible to amend the result of the following game to 0-1; the result was reported incorrectly.

J Bonin vs S Sandager, 1992

Oct-18-17  Retireborn: This is a long shot, but does anybody have detailed info about the Moscow-Prague (and Prague-Moscow?) matches of 1946?

I'm unclear if there were two events (one in each city) or if there was just a single event. Googling references a Sutton Coldfield bulletin which calls it a 6-a-side all play all event, although I don't understand how that could produce the 72 games they claim (and I suspect that by all play all they may mean Scheveningen anyway.)

I've also been looking on Rusbase with no success, though I may be looking in the wrong place there.

  Tabanus: <Retireborn> 6 x 6 x 2 = 72 games,

that is, all play all twice. CG has some (all?) games, from Prague in March and from Moscow in May.

  offramp: I was looking at Lasker's Notable tournaments:

<NOTABLE TOURNAMENTS: [what is this?> Yeah! What is that?<]> <Nuremberg (1896)
Lasker - Bird (1890)
St. Petersburg 1895/96 (1895)
Paris (1900)
London (1899)
Lasker - Janowski (1909)
St Petersburg (1914)
New York (1924)
Maehrisch-Ostrau (1923)
St. Petersburg (1909)
Moscow (1925)
Hastings (1895)
Cambridge Springs (1904)
Zurich (1934)
Nottingham (1936)>

That is the order they are in. Is there a reason for its higgledy-piggledy nature?

  Tabanus: <R> http://www.olimpbase.org/index.html... seems to imply only one match, with first half in Prague (March 2) and a second half in Moscow (May 22). Crosstable: http://www.olimpbase.org/other/resu... (Simagin may have been the reserve and stepped in for Lilienthal and Alatortsev).
Oct-18-17  Retireborn: <Tab> Many thanks! Tremendous help. It all makes sense to me now. Wish I'd thought of looking on olimpbase.

Your maths is evidently better than mine too :)

  hemy: <Tabanus>The 1st match was held in Prague from March 2 to March 12 1946. Moscow - Prague 23-13.

Simagin played all 6 games (+1 =4 -1),
Alatortsev and Lilienthal played 3 games each one with the same result (+1 =2 -0).

The 40 days visit of Moscow team in Czechoslovakia included matches and simultaneous exhibitions.

Moscow - Bratislava 13-3 (March 16 - March 20, 8 boards, 2 rounds)

Moscow - Zlin 7-1 (March 21 - March 24 8 boards, 1 round).

Moscow - Brno 12.5 - 3.5 (March 27 - March 30, 8 boards, 2 rounds)

On the board 8 played Moscow team captain Yakov Rochlin.

From May 11 to May 21 1946 in Moscow was held 2nd match Moscow - Prague (28.5 - 7.5).

I will email you special edition magazines of "Shachmati v SSSR", ("Moskva-Prag", May 1946, volume 1-4 and volume 5-8). It includes all 72 games of this match.

  Nosnibor: <offramp> I agree with you and would have thought that Moscow 1935 would also have been one of his most notable tournaments where he finished third without losing,half a point behind the two winners Botvinnik and Flohr but ahead of Capablanca and a stellar field.

  Tabanus: Moscow-Prague match 1946, quick look:

All games of Bronstein, Kotov, Smyslov and Simagin are in CG database. About 15 games are missing, of Lilienthal, Alatortsev and Bondarevsky.

  offramp: <Nosnibor>, I thought the normal order would be for the tournaments to be in date order.

  MissScarlett: Round dates for the <Lev Polugaevsky/Sicilian thematic/Buenos Aires 1994> tournament are requested.

Game Collection: 99_Lev Polugajevky Tourn. Buenos Aires 1994

The tournament book cited, <Sicilian Love>, doesn't have them (a lamentable omission). I don't know the source of the tournament dates given, <12.-30. October 1994>, but, if correct, I doubt there were upto 5 rest days, so the days for opening/closing ceremonies may be included.
