It's written so in the book "MARSHALL'S BEST GAMES OF CHESS".

This why you have to make those submissions. I will make the submission after the new owner gets in place.

Aug-17-18  Granny O Doul: Are Worrall and Wormald actually two different people?

As for the game score, the way it appears in the text here seems more plausible. I'd guess it's the Marshall book that is wrong. FWIW.

  TheFocus: His annotations follow his game-score.

This was a team match, so maybe coverage appeared in the New York newspapers, and maybe the game-score was printed in one of them.

  TheFocus: <Granny O Doul> <As for the game score, the way it appears in the text here seems more plausible.>

I do agree though. Definitely 5...b5 before ...Bc5 is played, to have a ready retreat.

Aug-17-18  JimNorCal: <Granny O'D>: "Are Worrall and Wormald actually two different people?"

I believe yes, they are. And don't they both have a variation in the Lopez named after them?

Aug-18-18  Granny O Doul: <His annotations follow his game-score. This was a team match, so maybe coverage appeared in the New York newspapers, and maybe the game-score was printed in one of them.>

That would be helpful to see. Thing is, that book is widely reported to have been ghostwritten by Fred Reinfeld.
