|Apr-08-18|| ||Penguincw: And add a walk.
In other news, Dodgers blow another lead.
|May-27-18|| ||MissScarlett: Something wrong with your scoring for Maroczy here: Game Collection: Ostend 1906|
Results of stage 5 have Maroczy with 20 points, but the complete crosstable totals 21. But tot up the individual results therein and its only 18 points.
|May-27-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Miss Scarlett> Maroczy's total has been changed to the correct 20 points. The two missing points were his Stage 5 wins over Janowski and Perlis. I had inadvertently entered each as a loss for both players.|
Thans for your help. Let me know if you spot anything else. I'll do a final clean-up once the games get in.

|May-28-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Telemus> thanks for the game, and in particular or transcribing the score. That saved me much grief.|
|May-29-18|| ||MissScarlett: I see you have collections for <ACB> 1904 and 1905. Have any of these games been submitted?|
|May-29-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <MissScarlett> Not as yet. With several hundred games int he queue right now, I'm not really motivated to do so at this time.|
|Jun-08-18|| ||Tabanus: <PB> Abraham Tabash for US Open 1968.|
|Jun-08-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Tabanus> Updated. Thanks.|
|Jun-24-18|| ||Tabanus: <PB> Let me know if you are unhappy with my changes to Agency International (1997). You can also edit it yourself.|
|Jun-24-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <tabanus> It looks fine. Thank you.|
Looks like the Ostend 1906 games are in.
|Jun-25-18|| ||offramp: Ostend 1906. The Holy Grail.|
|Jun-25-18|| ||WannaBe: Interesting starting game time today, do you know why OAK v DET is starting at mid-afternoon on a Monday?|
|Jun-25-18|| ||Phony Benoni: Annual fireworks display in Downtown Detroit tonight, celebrating the Independence Days of US and Canada.. Normally draws about a half-million people.|
It's a big one. I live maybe ten miles agaw and can still catch glimpses of it. Without a television.
|Jun-26-18|| ||Travis Bickle: Hey Mr Benoni, It must be a year of Sunday's since we last chatted.. My Cubs are ok.. Lack of quality pitching especially in the bullpen & the hitting is off & on.. How's them Tigers doing?|
|Jun-26-18|| ||Phony Benoni: Tigers aren't going anywhere but down, Travis. They're in a rebuilding mode with a bunch of kids. And now Miguel Cabrera's year -- and possibly career --- is over due to a ruptured bicep muscle. They mde it interesting for a while, but reality is setting in.|
Anxiously awaiting the start of football season. That's hwo bad it's gotten.
|Jul-16-18|| ||Stonehenge: <PB>
This game is not from the US Open but from the World Open:
G Zaichik vs Shabalov, 1993
|Jul-16-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Stonehenge> Thanks for checking, but this appears to be from the US Open. The game is printed in the round 4 bulletin from the US Open. |
In addition, here is the USCF crosstable from the World Open. #4 Shabalob and #16 Zaitchik did not meet.
|Jul-16-18|| ||Stonehenge: OK, you are the boss :)
I've changed it back to 94th US Open.
|Jul-17-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Stonehenge> Thanks. By the way, I haven't done detailed checking on most years since 1977, so if you find any other suspicious games please let me know.|
|Jul-17-18|| ||Stonehenge: Oh, I don't think you saw
Phony Benoni chessforum (kibitz #22484)
PGN can be found here:
|Jul-17-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Stonehenge> Yes, I did miss that note. My apologies.|
That collection was assembled long ago, and I have no idea where I got the dates They clearly wrong, however.
The appears to be an anomaly in the round dates, December 27 - January 4 is only nine days for a nine-round tournament, so if there was a rest day there must also have been a day with two rounds. Brit Base has rounds 3 $ 4 on Monday, December 30, which appears to be original schedule.
However, I found this report in the "London Guardian", December 31, 1935:
<"According to the programme, two rounds had been arranged for to-day...">
(Meaning Monday, Dec3ebmer 30, the date appearing in the by-line.)
<"...but the players in the premier tournament decided to play their fourth round games in advance yesterday.. ".>
which would indicate te fourth round was actually played on December 29, efore the third round on December 30.
There are other newspaper reports which also indicate games were played on the rest day. I can investigate further if it seems necessary.
I have no idea why they played the fourth round early instead of the third, unless they wanted to make life difficult for historians.
|Jul-18-18|| ||Stonehenge: The Britbase PGN in the Golombek-Tartakower fourth round game has this:|
the third and fourth rounds were both played on 30 December
in order to complete the schedule by the following Saturday, though the Times
tells us that some games were played in advance to avoid having two games on
one day (but doesn't mention which ones).
|Jul-18-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Stonehenge> While it would be better to have direct evidence from a British newspaper, I have located an Associated Press report dated <December 29> and printed in various newspapers. This version is from the "Boston Glob", Monday, December 30, 1935, page 6:|
<"BRITISH CHAMPION LOSES, FINE RETAINS CHESS LEAD>
<"C. H. Alexander of London, defeated W. Winter, British champion, in the third [sic] round of the international chess masters' tournament here today. Reuben Fine of New York led the field with a score of 2-0.
"Dr. S. Tartakower of Poland played to a draw with H. Golombek, London. Three games were adjourned.">
The report then list a summary of the games which matches those played in what we know as Round 4.
This seems good evidence confirming the statement in the "Guardian" that all the games in round 4 were played a day early on Sunday, December 29. Even saying the games were from "round 3" indicates the report assumed that because it was the third round played.
