thomastonk: <OhioChessFan> <Chessical> <Zanzibar> <Tabanus> I've seen your postings. Thank you very much for your help! I will do the suggested improvements and answer the questions this evening. <Tabanus> Additional information is welcome, of course.
   May-27-15 Emanuel Lasker (replies)
thomastonk: <Chessical: No problems.> Great. <I wonder from which source the newspaper picked up the game fragment?> Yes, there has to be some missing link(s). Lyons has an interesting site, where I found a newspaper of Dec-27-1912, which at least mentions Lasker's visit: ...
   May-24-15 Ignatz von Kolisch
   May-24-15 Louis Schmidt
thomastonk: A possible starting point for more research: In an American article on the tournament in New York 1893 he was called "Ludwig Schmidt, the violin virtuoso". In scores of some compositions and a concert announcement, his name is given as "Louis Schmidt" or "Louis Schmidt, Jr."

thomastonk: [Event "?"] [Site "Venice"] [Date "????.??.??"] [Round "?"] [White "Salvioli"] [Black "Crosara"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "C38"] [PlyCount "36"] 1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Nf3 g5 4. Bc4 Bg7 5. O-O d6 6. d4 h6 7. c3 Ne7 8. g3 fxg3 9. Nxg5 hxg5 10. Bxf7+ Kf8 11. ...
   May-19-15 Lasker - Steinitz World Championship (1894)
thomastonk: Thanks, <Chessiacal>! I understood your sentence in such a way that the 200/100 were the prizes for the match of 1894. The 100 seem to be indeed a misprint: Landsberger quotes in his Steinitz biography, p 336, from "Shakmatny Zhurnal", and there are 2000 and 1000 rubles, ...
   May-18-15 H Nowarra vs E Eliskases, 1938
thomastonk: White resigned because of the threat 53... ♘c3+. But he missed 53. a3+, and the game continues.
   May-18-15 Lasker vs G T Humphreys, 1892
thomastonk: <TheFocus: Blindfold ...> This would explain 16.♕f3?, when he had 16.♕xc5 or at least 16.♕h6. But at 26 boards?! And -0, though this looks like a loss?!
   May-17-15 Gunsberg & Allies
thomastonk: In the game Gunsberg & Allies vs Lasker / MacDonnell, 1892 , Gunsberg and Arthur Skipworth played the White pieces. Source: Liverpool Mercury, 1892-08-13.
   May-17-15 Leopold Hoffer
thomastonk: For 1.. a6 aficionados: [Event "Consultation game"] [Site "Hotel des Roches Noires, Trouville"] [Date "????.??.??"] [Round "?"] [White "W. Donisthorpe/H.W. Trenchard "] [Black "L. Hoffer"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "C01"] [PlyCount "52"] 1. e4 a6 2. d4 e6 3. ...
