Jan-15-06  Necessary Truths: Ouch... wake up White! He's fallen asleep at the board.
Sep-29-12  Tchessaikovsky: This game can be found in Fred Reinfeld's book "How to Play Winning Chess" (1962) on page 112. In that book the winner's name is spelled "Laeganki." Reinfeld states that it was played in 1920, not 1950.

The correct line of play according to Reinfeld is 6.Bb5+, Bd7; 7.Bxd7+, Nxd7; 8.Ngf3.

  Phony Benoni: This is Game 8 in Irving Chernev's <The 1000 Best Short Games of Chess> (1955). He gives Black's name as "Leganski" and the year as "1950", which agree with the information given in our score.

If White is actually Alfred Seppelt then he was born in 1929, which would make Reinfeld's date of 1920 wrong.

Is there more information to resolve these discrepancies?
