|Apr-09-05|| ||Chessography: This is definitely one of those opening traps for amateurs to remember. |
|Dec-30-09|| ||rustyrook: 7--Qf6 is the move going after the e pawn. Then 8Nf7 Bxe6 9Nxh8 Nc6 but not
9--d4 when 10Qh5ch Kf8 11 Qb5 seems to favour white.|
|Jul-21-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
S Mlotkowski vs Deacon, 1913.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF MLOTKOWSKI.
Your score: 23 (par = 19)
PS. "10. ?" White to play and win, would make for a good Tuesday/Wednesday puzzle.

It's an expression of a (seemingly) immense ego, just as posting the scores of Guess The Move at every turn is another.
|Feb-13-14|| ||GrahamClayton: <rustyrook>7...♕f6 is the move going after the e pawn.|
Can White safely play 8. ♕xd5?. I looked at 8...♗xc3+ 9. bxc3 ♕xc3+ 10. ♔d1 ♕xa1 11. ♘f7 ♘c6 12. ♘xh8. White still has the e-pawn, and the threats of either 13. ♗b5 or 13. ♕h5+.
|Mar-08-17|| ||sachistu: Does someone have the source for the players involved, especially Deacon? This cannot be Frederic Deacon (Belgium then England) as he had long since died. The British Chess Magazine, 1916, p.200 lists the game as a blindfold game "played a few years ago in Philadelphia". Black is listed as Mr.S---. The score in BCM stops after Black's 10th, saysin 'mate in two'.|
|Mar-10-17|| ||MissScarlett: <The Philidelphia Times> of November 6th, 1898, lists various team line-ups for a Philadelphia junior chess league (the league appears to be of junior status, not the players). Three members of the Camden Chess Club: are S. Mlotkowski, J. Deacon and E. Deacon.|
On the 4th of December, it's revealed that Mlotkowski is Camden's top board, whilst J. Deacon is third, and E. Deacon, fourth.
|Mar-11-17|| ||sachistu: That's interesting <MissScarlett> but really does not tell us who Mlotkowski's opponent was in the game in question. BCM is generally reliable and I see no reason they would describe Black as 'Mr. S' if the game was against one of the Deacon's you mentioned. |
However, BCM is not infallible and if you find a source that lists Deacon as his opponent, it would have to be considered.
p.s. sorry about the earlier typo. It should have read 'saying' (not saysin). Don't know how that gremlin got in there.

That's why after 8. ♕xd5 ♗xc3+ 9. bxc3 ♕xc3+ 10. ♔d1 black must play 10... ♘c6 11. ♖b1 ♘f6 with a good game.
