   jnpope has kibitzed 654 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-20-17 Harry Nelson Pillsbury (replies)
jnpope: <<MissScarlett: That would be fair comment, except for> Mar-24-16 jnpope: I hope to have a new edition out this year.> Hope is not a promise or a guarantee. But I do have a 2016 edition (digital), one copy, sitting on my laptop. Feel free to swing by Ann Arbor and I'll ...

jnpope: Baltische Schachblätter, 1910 v12, appears to be the only other placeholder entry.
   Apr-06-17 Biographer Bistro (replies)
jnpope: <I'm sure both <jnpope>...> Don't count on it. This really isn't my century of expertise. ;-)
   Mar-27-17 Paris (1900) (replies)
jnpope: I suspect the submitter meant to say that "initial draws" are not shown. At Paris 1900, if a game was drawn it did not count and a second game had to be played. The second game, if drawn, did count. Someone should redo/reformat the crosstable with the complete results (IMO).
   Mar-18-17 Max Judd (replies)
jnpope: After further review I would like to revise my statement; "Boy, that early pic of Judd sure looks a lot like Paulsen". In the pix I've compared Judd has a more pronounced ear lobe spacing from ear to skull, and he also has a widow's peak hairline, which this photo also shows. The pix
   Mar-14-17 Staunton - Saint Amant (1843) (replies)
jnpope: Earlier this month I finished a CA treatment of the 1843 Staunton-Staint Amant match: I asked readers of the Bistro if anyone possessing superior French language skills than myself could spot-check my translations of Saint Amant's annotations ...
   Mar-08-17 Owen vs De Vere, 1872 (replies)
jnpope: Does anyone have a source for this game?
   Mar-06-17 Anderssen - Steinitz (1866)
jnpope: I suspect Bell's meant to state £50 (no other source made a £500 claim). Most sources say £100 a side with the £50 purse for the winner going to Steinitz according to the Field.
   Feb-21-17 Lasker - Steinitz World Championship (1894) (replies)
jnpope: I have just updated the Chess Archaeology match page for this event: It now includes the match conditions as printed in the New York Sun, added Pillsbury's annotations where available, and more detailed post-match bickering by Steinitz (who ...
   Jan-23-17 Zukertort vs Steinitz, 1886
jnpope: <ephesians: <Tough ending, hard to evaluate. Maybe Steinitz should have drawn this anyway.>> Lomonosov 7-piece tablebase indicates the position after 68.Rxh4 is a draw. Steinitz's 68...Nf5 is a blunder that allows White to mate in 58(!). Although I really can't fault ...
