   Sep-18-18 Szabo vs Pachman, 1954
sachistu: Thanks for your input <Retireborn>. One other point in the favor of the tournament book version is that the tournament was in Czechoslovakia (Prague - Marianske Lazne) and thus Marsalek (a contributor to Czechoslovensky Sach) would likely have had access to the tournament ...
   Sep-17-18 Schiffers vs Nolde, 1872
sachistu: Incidentally, Black is listed as Baron E. Nolde in Schiffers' book. Presumably, this was Baron Eduard von Nolde.
   Sep-17-18 Najdorf vs Shocron, 1954
sachistu: Move 28. Be4 (allowing 28...Bxc4) is a typo. The actual move was 28.Bd3 as given in SvSSSR/1954/p346. The erroneous score (e.g.28.Be4) is also in ChessBase. I'll submit a correction slip.
   Sep-17-18 Najdorf vs J de Souza Mendes, 1954
sachistu: This version (probably from ChessBase) is not quite correct. Instead of 24...Bxd5 25.Qf4+ Ke8 26.Nc7, the game went 24...Qa7 25.Qf4+ Ke8 26.Nc7 as given in SvSSSR 1954 Issue 11, p.345. This is certainly a more logical continuation of White's 25th and 26th moves. In the event of ...
   Sep-13-18 E Terpugov vs Geller, 1951
sachistu: In this sharp game, an interesting position could have occurred after 16.d6! Instead of the game continuation (16...exf4), one of the alternatives analyzed was the following: 16...e6 17.fxe5 Nxe5 18.Rf4, when one of the possible continuations is 18...Nd5. After 19.Nxd5 exd5 20.Nxf7
   Sep-12-18 M Bonch-Osmolovsky vs B Baranov, 1953
sachistu: A more precise venue for this game is the URS-ch qf Grp1 Moscow 1953. There were 2 groups in the quarter-finals at Moscow and Leningrad that year. The game is annotated by Bonch-Osmolovsky in SvSSSR 1954, Issue 4, p114. I've submitted a correction slip. Regarding the suggestion ...
   Sep-02-18 Loman vs Spielmann, 1905
sachistu: Yes, that makes sense <Retireborn>.
   Sep-02-18 L Steiner vs Bogoljubov, 1928
sachistu: The two suggestions made by <tpstar> e.g. 24...Rxf3 and 24...Qxb2 were analyzed in Wiener Schachzeitung 1928 (114-115). 24...Rxf3 loses after 25.axb5 Rfxf2 26.bxc6 h6 27.cxb7! (WSz) or 25...Nxd4 26.Nxf3 Nxf3 27.Kg2 Nh4 28.Kg3 g5 29.Rxc7! with a hopeless ending for Black. ...
   Sep-01-18 Alekhine vs Castillo M/Perea A/Muno L, 1927
sachistu: This game is featured in <Magyar Sakkvilag> 1928, page 61-64 with Alekhine's notes. There the additional moves 45...Nf6 46.Rc4 "and mate on the next move" are given.
   Sep-01-18 Biographer Bistro (replies)
sachistu: Hello <Retireborn>. This 12 round tournament started on Saturday, November 17th and ended December 4th, 1973. It had no official status, but was referred to as the 'alternative championship'. To most, the winner was perceived to be the strongest player in the Netherlands. It ...

  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.
