|Oct-22-07|| ||Sourav: If Conway died in 1795, then how have two of his games mentioned above been marked as played in 1801?|
|Oct-22-07|| ||Calli: <Sourav> Good point. The De Beaurevoir game was actually played in May 1787 and the Brühl game in 1788. Source: Oxford Encyclopedia of Chess Games.|
|Oct-23-07|| ||Thorski: "Conway's Game of Chess" would make an excellent pun for a GotD. =P|
|Oct-25-07|| ||Sourav: <Calli> Thank You!|
