   Apr-22-14 A E Blackmar vs Lasker, 1892 (replies)
thomastonk: <An Englischman: Blackmar didn't play his own gambit vs. the great Lasker?!> Lasker played the wrong Blackmar, see Armand Edward Blackmar .

thomastonk: <Karpova> Thank you for the update! I wasn't completely sure (-> Editorial in "Karl", 3/2013), and so I left it to the expert.

thomastonk: <zanzibar: To change the subject for a moment... > Feels like the same subject to me. You found a source and drew already a conclusion, but I cannot see any verification. Academical historians use many categories of sources to avoid mistakes. Here is an example from chess ...
   Apr-17-14 H Ruben vs S Sorensen, 1876 (replies)
thomastonk: Correction slip submitted. Based on the source above, I suggested to replace White by H Ruben , and Black by Soren Anton Sorensen .
   Apr-16-14 Aaron Alexandre

thomastonk: <Phony Benoni: I would strongly prefer the human overrid.> I support this, because it is the most flexible solution. Moreover, several of the exceptional tournaments cannot be solved by 1) and 2), because the different numbers of games per player resulted from rules like ...
   Apr-15-14 Lasker vs Tarrasch, 1908 (replies)
thomastonk: <Karpova: Dr. Emanuel Lasker writes that the game was adjourned after 50.Bb5> Okay, this coincides, and hence there are no doubts. (Tarrasch mentions that this was already the second adjournment.) <But it doesn't seem too likely to me that Tarrasch needed that extra time
   Apr-14-14 Schiffers vs Chigorin, 1878 (replies)
thomastonk: The end of this game has deserved some attention. The position after 31.♕f5 appears in a book by Neistadt on queen's sacs, which is currently my bedside book. Usually I study one or two examples and then I fall into a deep sleep. But this example didn't work well. ...
   Apr-13-14 Flohr vs R Pitschak, 1930
thomastonk: <backrank> Hard to believe, but this game was indeed played by Salo Flohr.
