|Mar-11-05|| ||sneaky pete: This must be Bernhard Kagan, publisher of the quarterly (later monthly) magazine Kagan's Neueste Schachnachrichten (between 1921 and 1932) and of the great books from that period by Lasker, Nimzowitsch and Tartakower. |
|Jun-16-05|| ||Benzol: <sneaky pete> I think your right mate. Neueste Schachnachrichten was a labour of love and full of great games.|

He gives Kagan, M. & R.; Chessbase's database 2018 gives Kagan/NN, and another database attributes it to some Michael Kagan.
I saw it first many years ago in a newspaper, and only a few years ago in the father's chess magazine, both times with full firstnames: Minna and Ruth (Kagans Neuests Schachnachrichten 1928, p 312-313, annotated by B.Kagan who quotes about the opening moves Tartakower, Bogoljubov and Tarrasch). The game was presented during the simul at a demonstration board because of the great interest, and it ended after four hours.
