  crawfb5: Donaldson, Minev, and Seirawan give the simul in Warsaw as played on 1 Dec 1928, 31 games, score as +21 -4 =6.

This particular game is from an 8-board clock simul (+4 -2 =2) played in Warsaw on 11 Dec 1928. Blass played for the Polish team at the 1928 Olympiad at The Hague.

May-05-17  Paarhufer: A newspaper from January 1929 states that the game was played in Warsaw on 11 Dec 1928 (as crawfb5 wrote), but also that is was played in a 29 board simul (as GrahamClayton wrote).
