  Honza Cervenka: Draw?!? It is a nonsense. Black undoubtedly won the game.
Feb-11-05  MUG: Bizzare result! Maybe there were circumstances away from the board that lead to this draw? (ie. Weiss was about to lose on time, and Bird, being a jolly nice fellow, decided that wouldn't be fair, and shared the point?)
Feb-11-05  percyblakeney: Bird and Weiss played two games in New York 1889, both of them draws. This database has five games between Bird and Weiss from that tournament, and this can't be one of the two right ones, but from another occasion where Weiss won or from a game between other players.
Feb-11-05  MUG: make a mistake?! I can't believe it!! ;-)

Feb-19-05  crookedbrd: Ah the good old days where gentlemen were playing and a win did not mean everything.
