   Apr-17-18 Tartakower vs Duchamp, 1929
sachistu: Although this version exists in various online databases, the score is clearly incorrect. Apart from move 22 that was mentioned back in 2011, the c-pawn was hanging all the way back to move 12. There was also a typo on move 24, which was a3 (not h3). Finally, White played the ...
   Mar-24-18 Flamberg vs O Bernstein, 1912
sachistu: The score is not quite correct. Black's 32nd move was 32...f6! (not 32...Rb1 as appears in some online sources). The correct move 32...f6 appears in Gillam's book of the Vilnius 1912 tournament and in Shakhmatny Moscow, 1971 Issue 10 with Bernstein's notes. Note that in the version
   Mar-24-18 L Shamkovich vs R Grabczewski, 1971
sachistu: Well, this is embarrassing! I completely mis-read the results of the Moscow tournament. Lutikov was 1st (9.5) with Shamkovich 2nd (9) and Liberzon 3rd (8.5). The rest of the field in finishing order was Grabczewski, Zhukovitsky, Vladimirov, Gavrilov, Obukhovski, Filipowicz, Estrin,
   Mar-23-18 B Nisman vs L Karlsson, 1971
sachistu: Theory (ECO) considers the position after 10.Kxc1 as much better for White where 6...Nxd5 is given either ? or ?! depending on the edition. However, the results have been mixed. The earliest game I could find was Steiner-Mengarini from the US Open at Milwaukee 1953. It was played a
   Mar-20-18 Alla Kushnir
sachistu: Just a follow up on my previous post... The 7 games ChessBase lists are all from the 1970 playoff match. I happened to notice Wikipedia listed the score as 4.5-3.5 with a note 'citation needed'. In fact, there were only 7 games played with Kushnir winning 4-3. See Shakhmatny Moscow
   Mar-14-18 Francisco Jose Perez Perez
sachistu: Do we know what year Perez Perez emigrated to Cuba? I ask because F. Perez is listed among the participants in an international tournament at Tolbuhin (Dobrich) apparently right after the Varna 1962 olympiad. In the cross table he is is listed as F. Perez (Cuba). However, Perez is ...
   Mar-12-18 Arovah Bachtiar
sachistu: The following position is from Bachtiar-Liang, Indonesian chp, 1961 [DIAGRAM] Black played 33...Bd1! (another possibility is 33...Rc2 34.Qxb3 Qxe5) 34.Nxf7+ Kg8 35.Rxe8+ Nxe8 36.Qe7? Re2 and White resigned. However, White had a saving move e.g. 36.Qe4! and if ...Re2 then 37.Nh6+! ...
   Mar-10-18 Yanofsky vs Portisch, 1962
sachistu: The score given here is incorrect. Beginning with move 29, the score should be 29.Qg3 h6 30.Rb2 Kf8 31.Kh2 Bc6 32.Nd5 Bxd5 33.cxd5 Rdb8 34.Reb1 Rb7 35.a4 Rab8 36.Bf1 Rb4 37.Bc4 R8b6 38.Kg2 Qb7 39.Qc3 with the rest as given here. Apparently, the huge lemon (36.Bf1??) has gone ...
   Mar-05-18 V M Georgescu vs D Drimer, 1961
sachistu: I neglected to mention that a more precise venue description is Romanian championship (ROM-ch) at Bucharest.
   Feb-19-18 D Mardle vs N Gaprindashvili, 1965
sachistu: The 7th move was 7...dxc6 (not ...bxc6) according to British Chess Magazine, 1965, page 38. However, the game has been published in other sources with 7...bxc6 i.e. Magyar Sakkelet, 1965, Issue 2 page 20. I'll submit a correction slip. It's interesting no one has mentioned the ...

  Calli: Sergeant gives "Bornemann H" in Morphy's Games of Chess (page 348)

Also Maroczy (page 433)

But probably both of those authors copied it from Lange's third edition

Premium Chessgames Member
  Calli: You can see a Maroczy 1909 edition "snippet" here:

and Sergeant here:

Somewhere or another I had a reasonable guess of who Bornemann was, but I can't find my notes on it at moment.

You are correct about Guibert, I copied it from NIC and later found out it was a modern player, but never went back to correct the collection here.

  Calli: Looks like most Morphy v. Morphy games are duplicate Don't know why. As far as the two dates. CKR had the best Morphy pgn of the day and it probably had the two years in there.
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Calli> It's not that the games are duplicates, it's that due to a quirk in how the search works all of them are listed twice.

  sachistu: Anybody know what's going on at the Rusbase site? Have not been able to connect there for a least a week. Maintenance? Other?
Mar-08-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: Concerning your call for bulletins to ascertain the true scores for T Krabbe vs V Tukmakov, 1966 and for D Rivera vs I Farago, 1966, here's a link to a publication that might be of assistance:

As you can see, IM Jaroslav Šajtar (who I believe was the arbiter of the XIIIth World Student Team Chess Championship at Örebro, Sweden held from July 30 through August 14, 1966) compiled this volume, which was published by the International Union of Students in Prague, Czechoslovakia.

I wish I had this resource. It appears on some collectors' want lists. I don't mean to tantalize you with this information; I do hope somehow this concrete lead aids you in your research.

Kind regards.

Mar-08-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: By the way, I did check Tidskrift för Schack for 1966 and 1967 (both in the year-end Registers and in the apposite 1966 issues), but came up empty.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Thanks <luftforlife>. Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been otherwise occupied. I have Sajtar's book, but unfortunately, it only has a small selection of games and neither of those games are included. Thanks for checking TfS. I thought I had looked there, but another pair of eyes always helps. Again, thanks. Unfortunately, the question remains.
Mar-30-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: You're welcome. Good to hear from you, and good to know at least we've been on the same pages so far. I'll take another, harder look and see what I can find. Kind regards.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: I appreciate your efforts <luftforlife>. Sajtar has edited a number of these World Student Team Championship booklets, several of which I have. Apart from the round-by-round results, he typically includes 1-3 games from each round of the preliminary and final sections. This is far less than the total number of games played at these events. The booklets are useful, and his notes are interesting, but certainly not complete. Good hunting! I will be continuing my search as well.
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: My pleasure! I've left some notes at T Krabbe vs V Tukmakov, 1966. I've also requested definitive verification of the score for that particular game, and I hope my request proves fruitful. Hope you're well. Kind regards.
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: My request proved fruitful. I received a kind, gracious, and helpful reply, with definitive verification of the score and some context as well. Good news!
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Thanks <luftforlife>. I left a post at the Krabbe-Tukmakov game. One to go! (well, actually many to go!)
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: You're welcome! Always happy to help, and especially delighted to deliver good news. Definitude soothes.

Any other conundrums? Please let me know. Cheers!

Apr-05-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: I heard from my source, and I got the straight dope on Pavlos Gesos. Check out his page to learn more. Great work by all concerned. Hope you're well! Best wishes.
