Nov-29-04  LIFE Master AJ: This looks like a simple crush ... but there is more to it than that. (White's twenty-first is an obvious blunder.)
Dec-01-04  LIFE Master AJ: This was the last round of CS1904.

This was the last game that Mr. Fox played in International Chess, naturally I am sure he would have preferred it not end on a blunder.

If I remember correctly, Mr. Fox was one of the oldest participants ... perhaps he tired towards the end of this event?

Dec-01-04  Javid Danowski: <LIFE Master AJ> Actually, Fox (1881-1964) was one of the two youngest players in the tournament (Napier was born in the same year but I do not know either his or Fox's actual birth dates). See
Dec-01-04  LIFE Master AJ: <DJ>
You are correct sir, I have written "bio's" for all the players, I also authored the page that gave the ages of the players. ( I apologize for unintentionally creating any confusion in this area.

I said I was operating from memory ... and it failed me. Apparently I was confusing Fox with Delmar. I do so much with chess ... I have literally thousands of chess web pages ... it is difficult to always get it right.

I have also annotated this game, (; if you are interested.

Jan-02-05  LIFE Master AJ: After move 15 ... would you rather be White, (Two Knight plus a button); or Black? (The Two Bishops.) Interesting question!
