Nov-22-08  gauer: In addition to Murray Smith , there had also been K O Mott Smith (Chicago & Boston tournaments, 1923-64) & Magnus Smith (Magnus, of Winnipeg, Canada; Chicago not being as far a travel from Winnipeg to a New York tournament).

A bit of history from : Magnus Smith (1869-1934), Winnipeg
Three times Canadian Champion (1899, 1904, 1906)

Perhaps this might not be Murray Smith?

  Phony Benoni: <Gauer> I believe you're right. Di Felice, <Chess Results 1901-1920>, p. 160, confirms that White was Magnus Smith. Besides, Murray Smith has only other game in the database, from 1991.

I've submitted a correction.

Jan-16-09  gauer: Just noticed today that gives a list of some other Cdn. corr. players named Smith:

Madge Smith, ~ 1369 (another M Smith...); Sid Smith, ~ 1488; Dr. Colin M Smith, ~ 2083. Also checking the Howell Smith page produces all but one of the Hazel Smith games from the recent 2008 Olympiad.

Yes, the corrections/amendments are on their way up the grapevine.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Another possible correction is that Black's 12th and 13th moves might have been transposed. 12...h6; 13.a3,Nh5 makes more sense than the game, in which 12...Nh5; 13.a3???,h6??? and both players didn't see the hanging Bishop on f4.
