   Nov-12-18 Rudolf Rezso Charousek (replies)
sachistu: <Telemus> would you share the source that identified the venue of the game given by <jnpope> Charousek-Exner (C50) 1-0 in 31? Also, would you also share the source(s) that identified the venues for the 8 games given by <Jean Defuse>? In particular, I'm ...
   Nov-08-18 Mascheck
sachistu: Chessbase mistakenly lists Stefan Mascheck (a modern-era player). The City of London Chess Magazine Vol 1 1875 (actually 1874) page 175 lists Black as E.J.F Mascheck in the game with Blackburne. E.Mascheck (of Schiedam near Rotterdam) is also listed as a chess contributor in the ...
   Nov-07-18 Blackburne vs J Baddeley, 1874
sachistu: One of 8 simultaneous blindfold games played at Union Chess Club in Manchester, Nov 28, 1874. See City of London Chess Magazine 1876, page 21.
   Nov-03-18 Korchnoi vs A Zapata, 1992
sachistu: The score given here must be incorrect. Most likely 49.Bb7 is a typo, which loses immediately to 49...Bxd6. Instead, 49.Nb7 was probably the move when ...Nc2 as given is at least plausible. 49.N2c4 would also win. The version given here probably came from ChessBase, which has the ...
   Sep-28-18 Vera Menchik (replies)
sachistu: It's embarrassing, but the error I indicated in the 4th game of the first Price-Menchik match was caused by a transcription error on my part (on move 20). The score as given in the book is apparently correct (or at least plausible), even though Tanner gives no source for the game. ...
   Sep-25-18 H W Trenchard vs Alapin, 1898
sachistu: Remarkably, 28 years later White pursued the the same faulty placement of his King's Bishop and Black used the same strategy to win. In Strasding-Apsenieks (Latvian Congress, 1926), Black played 13...a6 (instead of the immediate ...Ne5). The game went 14.b3 Ne5 15.Be2(?) Rad8 ...
   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 ...

  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.

  Calli: The Alekhine vs Pinkus/Kevitz in the Brooklyn Eagle:

  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.
