   Oct-11-17 J Mason vs Janowski, 1902 (replies)
 
Pawn and Two: <Phony Benoni> The "Deutsche Schachzeitung" also includes a note, similar to the one you mentioned for move 38, regarding the loss of a piece for White, if he captures the pawn by 38.Nxc6. I think it is clear White's 31st move is the move you have indicated, 31.Qf2.

Pawn and Two: Pillsbury and Chigorin met in the 18th round of the 1902 Monte Carlo tournament. There were only three rounds remaining after this round. After 17 rounds, the race for the top places was extremely close: Pillsbury - 11 3/4 - (Rd 17 - Pillsbury beat Tarrasch) Maroczy - 11 1/4 - ...

Pawn and Two: <zanzibar> I think there is considerable resemblance, but there is also more difference from what I expected, when comparing the illustration from 1899, and the photo from 1904. Of course, Johnston's illness may have had some bearing on the fairly rapid change in his ...

Pawn and Two: <JimNorCal> Sorry about my error. In checking Golombek's book, "Reti's Best Games of Chess", Chapter V, The Reti Opening, 1923-1924, it is stated that Teichmann, shocked at the twofold fianchetto, referred to it as the stupid double-hole variation.

Game fragments from the tournament book: "London July 1886", by A.J. Gillam

<Gunsberg - Bird (Rd 6) 1-0>

1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.Nf3 g6 4.d4 cxd4 5.Nxd4 Bg7 6.Be3 d6 7.Be2 Nf6 8.0-0 0-0 9.f4 Ne8 10.f5

After move 37...Ng8:

38.Rxf7+ Rxf7 39.Rxf7+ Kh8 40.Rf8 Qe1+ 41.Kg2 Qe2+ 42.Rf2 Qe4+ 43.Kg3 Qd3+ 44.Kh2 Qd4 45.Kg1 Qc3 46.Bxg8

Per the tournament book, the Evening Standard and The Field provided coverage for this game.

Gillam provided the first fragment for this game, as the same moves from the opening in, <Mackenzie - Bird (Rd 4) 1-0>. This was based upon The Evening Standard's report that Bird had improved his defense, from his round 4 game with Mackenzie, by omitting the weakening move 10....e6.

Bird's 10th move in this game was not provided. Houdini indicates 10...Qb6! would have been good for Black: (-.59) (25 ply) 10...Qb6! 11.Nd5 Bxd4 12.Nxb6 Bxe3+ 13.Kh1 Bxb6, winning 3 pieces for the queen. Based on the position at move 37, it is clear Houdini's recommended line was not played. My guess is Bird played the move that was recommended in the notes to his 4th round game with Mackenzie, 10...Bd7. After 10...Bd7, Houdini indicates White would have had only a minimal edge.

In the above diagram, Black has just played 37...Ne7g8. Houdini preferred the move 37...Qd3+, but with either move, Black's position was hopeless. The Evening Standard noted that Bird resigned at move 56.

Per the tournament book, the Evening Standard, The Times, the International Chess Magazine, and the Daily News provided coverage for this game. Gillam also included one note by Hoffer.

The reports state Burn gained a pawn, but an incorrect exchange of knights allowed a Black pawn to reach the seventh rank, with Burn resigning on the 41st move.

  zanzibar: <Pawn and Two> looks like I have a bit of work left to do here.

Many of these are a few opening moves which I originally thought could just be included as a comment to a 0-move stub. Of course the ECO code could be updated to accurately reflect the opening, with or without including the moves. Since I'm doing fragments, I should probably include even these opening snippets.

The <Burn--Gunsberg> fragment agrees with BCM's.

The <Gunsberg--Bird> fragment is completely new.

Per the tournament book, The Field, the Evening Standard, and the Daily News provided coverage for this game.

The reports state this game continued through both sessions on July 17th, and was adjourned a 2nd time, after Mason made his 91st move. The game was completed at a later date.

No information was provided as to how Black won this game. White must have committed a blunder, as he has some advantage in the diagrammed position. However, Houdini indicates Black can hold the draw, with his best moves being 5....Ra7, 5...Ra8, or 5...Ra1.

  zanzibar: <Pawn and Two> I'll post notice over in the Bisto as well, but here's first notice:

https://zanchess.wordpress.com/2016...

The PGN link there should have all the games which I could rustle up, including the three you've contributed.

Hope you don't mind, but I left a post in the Source fields to your posts above for the individual games.

Many thanks.
