   Nov-25-15 Capablanca vs S M Ballou, 1915
thomastonk: The result of the above discussion was unsatisfactory for me, because I missed a source for the date. So, I tried to find one. I found the game on page 3 of the January 1916 issue of the "American Chess Bulletin". It had the following comment: "(Won by Sidney Ballou from ...
   Nov-22-15 Capablanca vs Edward Beckley Adams, 1915 (replies)
thomastonk: This game was indeed played on March 2, 1915 in Washington, D.C. Source: page 4 of the 'Washington Post' of March 3, 1915.
   Nov-21-15 Szen vs H H Boncourt, 1836
thomastonk: The game is incomplete. Louis Charles Mahe De La Bourdonnais wrote in "Le Palamède" 1836, page 365: <Les blancs ont gagné cette partie, qui n'a plus offert rien de bien intéressant.>
   Nov-20-15 London (1851)
thomastonk: What a horrible introduction!
   Nov-20-15 Olland vs A Hamming, 1933
thomastonk: <sneaky pete: That's not completely right.> Yes, many thanks. I had it correctly on Jan-23-13, when I wrote: <The round 9 encounter with Felderhoff has been played in advance ..>, but today I was mislead by the question I replied to.
   Nov-11-15 Marshall vs Lasker, 1900
thomastonk: <Honza Cervenka: almost certain> Before I found Lasker's correction in the WSZ, I thought that 17.♗c3 f6 18.f3 is <almost certain> the correct move order, because it is impossible that both masters did not spot something that I would play in a bullet game. But ...
   Nov-09-15 Alapin vs Leonhardt, 1908 (replies)
thomastonk: <dernier loup de T: after 121..f4> I was wondering about the move number, because we have here currectly only 115 moves. But then I found the game elsewhere ending after White's 121. Most probably there are further problems with the game score, because 92.. ♗d4?? is ...
   Nov-09-15 De Riviere vs Loewenthal, 1867
thomastonk: The game was commented on pages 282-284 of the tournament book for Paris (1867) , written by Neumann and de Rivière. White's 22th move is followed by this comment: "Les Blancs ont maintenant une forte partie, et nous ne connaissons pas de défense satisfaisante." (White has now a ...
   Nov-08-15 Saint Amant vs Staunton, 1843
thomastonk: <Caissanist: I believe ...> Well, the picture shows a lithograph of A[lexandre] Laemlein; you can see this from the snippet that Winter published below the picture. On Apr-04-11 I wrote: <It is a Lithograph[sic] by Laemlein after a painting by Marlet.> The painting of
   Nov-01-15 H W Popert (replies)
thomastonk: With the name <von Halle> appearing more often, I think I should add something about the paragraph on page 67, i.e. . It states that Meyer Wolf Popert relinquished his claim on the heir in favor of his children; and on the other side ...
