The Lent is over, but I've managed only to collect and archive about two-thirds of the chess columns I planned, and I will finish this task first, before the forum will be reopened.

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 Rubel vs B 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 .

thomastonk: Some action here: that's nice! Well, if I remember things correctly, I submitted the game against Deacon last autumn and then I wrote the brief biography (most probably with language support by <OhioChessFan> and <jessicafischerqueen>). So, I feel some responsibility

thomastonk: <SwitchingQuylthulg> Thank you very much! Your explanation is what I conjectured (including the 42). Players, who get an asterisk in the list, are shown always first, and the others seem to be sorted by rating. Preferring family names would help in case of my friend Aaron ...

   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
 
thomastonk: The end of this game has deserved some attention. The position after 31.Qf5 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 ...
 
   Apr-13-14 Flohr vs R Pitschak, 1930
 
thomastonk: <backrank> Hard to believe, but this game was indeed played by Salo Flohr.
 
   Apr-13-14 Sneek vs Leeuwarden, 1853 (replies)
 
thomastonk: <Stonehenge> Based on the precise information given in your source, I assume that 1853-54 should be the right years. And since Sissa is mentioned I searched in about 10 volumes. Probably I overlooked it ...
