   Aug-03-15 Hartlaub vs Beharry, 1911 (replies)
thomastonk: Mieses analysed this game. His game score has 12.. ♕c7, which is however unlikely, because of 13.♘b5. After 13.. ♕xd6 Mieses mentioned 14. ♘ce4 ♘xe4 15.♘xe4, and now the queen is forced to retreat to d8, because otherwise it will be lost after ...
   Aug-03-15 Beharry
thomastonk: Beharry? No! According to Jacques Mieses , who commented the loss against Hartlaub, this is Dr Benary from Munich. I have two unconfirmed "sources" for forenames: 'Victor' states one, 'Walter' states the other one. The game was played in the Hauptturnier A of a congress of the ...
   Aug-03-15 Baden-Baden (1870) (replies)
thomastonk: <z: <thomastonk> OK, good luck with your project.> Many thanks! I had to shift the trip by one week (sudden accomodiation problems this morning). <I can't guarantee that I'll have enough interest to do it all myself - so beware.> I'll motivate you! :-) It would ...
   Aug-03-15 Blackburne vs Steinitz, 1895 (replies)
thomastonk: <TheFocus: I wonder why?> Horace F. Cheshire's tournament book (pages 46-48) published the game with 37 moves, "White resigns" and notes by I. Gunsberg. Schallopp's tournament book (in German, pages 82-83) published the game with 37 moves, and the comment "und Weiß gab nach

thomastonk: Found a death notice: + 1880. Maybe more about this later.
   Aug-02-15 A Stern vs J Minckwitz, 1870
thomastonk: <z: I'm not sure what the issue is... Perhaps you could elaborate a little?> Yes, of course. On Dec-09-13 I stressed the following problem. Stern exceeded the time limit and lost: 0-1 after 20 moves was the official result. Both men agreed to continue the game, but this ...
   Aug-01-15 Amalie Paulsen (replies)
thomastonk: <zanzibar> I observe that you have a liking of Amalie. There is a book <Louis Paulsen 1833-1891: Das Schachspiel in Lippe 1900-1918> from 1982, which contains a lot of information on all family members. The author, Horst Paulussen, had access to the family archives, ...
   Jul-31-15 George Perigal
thomastonk: What a biography!! One sentence: <George Perigal died in London (possibly), England at the age of 48.> That's perfect! Nothing stupid or boring on his life, no almost won matches, no waste of time. Great! But, hmm, let's see, what does this word in brackets mean? Possibly?!
   Jul-31-15 George Frith Barry (replies)
thomastonk: Thanks, <Stonehenge>! It seems this article confirms my doubts in the less doubtful case. ;-)
   Jul-31-15 Thomas Avery (replies)
thomastonk: There is a nice article on the 'Birmingham Chess Club' by E.Gambit(!) in the 'Chess Amateur', 1907, p 230, which describes also Avery's merits. I add a third game: [Event "?"] [Site "Birmingham Chess Club"] [Date "1865.??.??"] [Round "?"] [White "Howard Staunton"]
