  Phony Benoni: Are we sure that Black wass Herman Steiner.

The "Brooklyn Daily Eagle} report (March 13, 1924, p. 14) refers to the player only as "Steiner".

A report in the }American Chess Bulletin," March 1924, p. 50-51, refers to <S. Steiner, a member of the Rice-Progressive Chess Club."> I have not yet found any information on "S. Steiner".

  MissScarlett: I've looked at this before, concluding that it's probably him. Herman was a member of the Rice-Progressive in 1924, playing in the club's championship later that year with good results, suggesting he would already have been strong enough to mix it with Capablanca a few months earlier.

  Phony Benoni: <MissScarlett> Thanks for that confirmation. I have just found a report on the simul in the }New York Times", March 9, 1924, p. 115. The names of the four who defeated Capablanca are given, and among them is <H. Steiner>.

That was good to see. I was fearful of denying some poor Samuel or Simon or Solomon Steiner their one moment of glory.

Jul-12-19  bamonson: It is Herman Steiner. He had been playing for about a year at the time. He also played in Alekhine's blindfold simul in 1924 and had the Russian beat, but missed a brilliant tactic and lost.
