  Calli: Henry Seymour Conway (1721-1795)
Oct-22-07  Sourav: If Conway died in 1795, then how have two of his games mentioned above been marked as played in 1801?

  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!
