|May-18-18|| ||Phony Benoni: "American Chess Bulletin", September 1905, p. 290, adds a few moves at the end:|
<36.g5 Rxh4 37.Kf2 Rf4+ 38.Kg3 Rxf5 39.Kg4 Ke6>
|Aug-01-18|| ||sachistu: Anyone have a copy of the Scheveningen 1905 tournament book (Vierde Internationale Schaakwedstrijd) by H.D.B. Meijer? My copy is missing pages 81-82. Page 81 is cited in the Contents section as the location of the Loman-Spielmann game score.|
|Aug-08-18|| ||sachistu: Tony Gillam was kind enough to send the missing pages. The tournament book stops after 35...Re5. No mention is made of the additional moves found in the American Chess Bulletin. Perhaps Helms received the moves from another (Dutch?) source.|
|Aug-08-18|| ||zanzibar: <sachistu> can you perhaps publish the missing pages somewhere?|
If you can't, would you consider forwarding them to me so I could?
This aspect of "open source" chess research is/was missing from <CG>, and was part of impetus for my Bistro post the other day.
As Charlie Parker says, "Now's the Time"!
|Aug-09-18|| ||sachistu: Hello <zanzbar>. I just sent a message to the Bistro (or at least I hope that is where it went!). Site was acting normally until I tried to send this kibitz. Seems back to 'normal' now.|
|Aug-15-18|| ||zanzibar: Thanks to both <sachistu> and Gillam, here's both versions of the game:|
|Aug-16-18|| ||sachistu: Thanks <zanzibar>|
|Aug-16-18|| ||Retireborn: <sachistu, z> Thanks to both you gentlemen I've been able to add this game to my annotated collection. Of interest is that Loman repeated his 9.c3 variation a few years later, with no better result:-|
Loman vs Alekhine, 1913
It's awful cheek, but I wonder if p83 of the TB (or the notes thereon) could also be reproduced? I'd be very interested to see the further annotations to Spielmann-Swiderski, as it seems that Spielmann agreed to a draw in a position that is winning for him (69.a5!)
|Aug-16-18|| ||sachistu: No problem <zanzibar>. Will do.|
|Aug-17-18|| ||zanzibar: Thanks should go to you, <sachistu>.|
I just found a backlog of messages to process, that my mail filter put into the wrong folder. Thought you might see this here first, and I'll ping you back.
I'll try to get an update out tomorrow after errands!
|Aug-18-18|| ||sachistu: No worries <z> I sent additional updates.|
