I am an UK chess player who plays OTB and correspondence. I particularly appreciate the games of Tal, Alekhine, Tarrasch and Capablanca.

I am particularly interested in the history of chess since from the 19th century. I now spend most of my time working on games collections.

Chessical: <Keypusher> I would like to have the Chigorin - Gunsberg Match (1890) included in the Tournament Index. I note, however, that you have already assembled the games so you have precedence. Is this currently an on-going project for you? If it is not may I write it up for ...

Chessical: I was planning to put together a Tournament Index submission for Horowitz-Kashdan 1938. I then discovered that you have already included it in your Game Collection: US Open 1938, Boston = 39th ACF Congress . Would you mind if I encroached?
