Tabanus: Good morning, sigh. <<1) (a)> Where did you get the games you submitted for that tournament?> From 365Chess. <<...(b)> Did you type them all in from a tournament book?> No. Is there any? I copied them, pasted into CB9 and added dates, round numbers and ...

Tabanus: <z> I don't, because I'm not going to use it for anything. The post is informative in itself, but does not lead to something concrete - an introduction, which the writer of would have to find own sources for anyway. I still wish you would write up a tournament, instead of ...

   Jan-24-16 Chigorin - Schiffers First Match (1878) (replies)
Tabanus: <TheFocus> Thanks! I updated the dates and bracket dates. I don't know what WCH is. Games 6 and 7 are on the same day, March 9 (a Thursday), which looks a little odd.

Tabanus: I vote for <thomastonk> for Best Historian. If nominees are allowed to vote!

   Jan-09-16 G MacDonnell vs De Vere, 1867
Tabanus: Dundee Advertiser, 14 Sept 1867: <These competitors having to leave town for a day or two, agreed to share the third prize, rather than play the tie.> Glasgow Evening Post 14 Sept. also says shared 3rd place. So where is this game from?
