Jul-01-16  zanzibar: Both <CB> and <NIC> give this ending:

<67.h5 Ra3 68.Rxg2+ Kxg2 69.c5 Kf3 70.c6 Rd3+ 71.Ke6 Rc3 72.Kd7 1/2-1/2>

I'm having trouble finding a contemporaneous source at the moment...

  Phony Benoni: <Zanzibar> Many, many years ago, when I still had a good book collection, I started collecting all the Janowski games I could find. (This was long before databases.)

Before realizing I had bitten off more than I could chew,I had typed up (did I mention this was before computers?) 337 games from 18 tournament books from Leipzig 1894 to Barmen 1905.

During my recent move, I came across these old pages in a long-forgotten box of Old Stuff. Before tossing them out, I thought I'd check them over.

I got this game from Ken Whyld's tournament book, published in 1982. His score agree with CD and NIC. Or, perhaps more correctly, they agree with him.

Which, admittedly, is still not a contemporaneous source/

  vonKrolock: If the collection here reproduces Kenneth Whyld's book, then the version given was extracted from the very scoresheets - that Heinrich Wagner handed personally to Whyld. But this would be also the source for CB and NIC (if this game here was not published somewhere before Whyld...).

But now the immediate source for this discrepancy appears clear as crystal...

Before kibitzing yesterday I overlooked this passage in Your post, mate... (Me too, I used to have a copy of Whyld's tiny booklet.)
