   Jul-24-17 Alexander Johansson vs G McIntosh, 1967
Tabanus: Wrong Johansson, most likely.
   Jul-24-17 Aksel Bu Kvaloy
Tabanus: He's only 8 and beat a titled player (FM Benjamin Dauth ) at Xtracon Chess Open recently, see game at
   Jul-24-17 Edward Daniels
Tabanus: In case of Edward Bates Daniels b. 7 March 1814, he was married 20 July 1833 in Saint Anne, Soho, Westminster to Maria Sarah Mead. But there's no Maria on same page as Edward in the 1841 census (Leman-street).
   Jul-23-17 Gunnar Johansson vs Miles, 1982
Tabanus: <Retireborn> For the record, it must be the one b. 1945. The one b. 1944 was weaker, and Gunnar Johansson born 1961 first appears in the Elo list of July 1994. It's hard to be 100% sure though.
   Jul-23-17 Jan Johansson vs DeFirmian, 1982
Tabanus: Hi guys, it's not entirely hopeless (in this case), because most events involving Swedes are covered in Tidskrift för Schack. Then one can also compare with the Elo lists. But it takes time, there are also Olsson, Jansson, Andersson, Carlsson, etc., etc., these guys are frequently ...
   Jul-23-17 Gunnar Johansson
Tabanus: Tidskrift för Schack, Sept 1982 p. 215, says Gunnar Johansson had no Elo but made a 1st IM norm at Lloyds Bank 1982. So I think this must be GJ born in 1945, as GJ born 1961 first turns up in the Elo list of July 1994. The GJ born in 1944 seems to be a weaker player.
   Jul-22-17 Gunnar Johansson vs Timman, 1972
Tabanus: White is Gunnar Johansson (but there are three of them), according to Tidskrift för Schack, February 1973, p. 41. Round 4, and the tournament was from 1972 over the new year to 1973.
   Jul-22-17 N Rashkovsky vs Toni Johansson, 1993
Tabanus: Black was Toni Johansson , according to Tidskrift för Schack, Nr. 8 1993, p. 377. Norsk Sjakkblad: T. Johansson.
   Jul-21-17 MetLife Warsaw Najdorf Chess Festival (2017)
Tabanus: What's worst, all the games in disorder, or games in order but two rounds missing?
   Jul-21-17 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Tabanus: Good morning, <Thomas Daniels, 33, buried 20 Dec 1844 in Old Brentford, Hounslow> is not correct, it was 20 Dec 184<6>. Leaving (it seems) Edward in Whitechapel as a likely candidate. The 1841 census also has Leman st(reet). That's 5 km from the Club. The death of Edward
