   May-22-17 NN vs Blackburne, 1880 (replies)
zanzibar: Blackburne annotated this game, so was it from his book w/Graham? Fine uses a position from this game (p088.d135), after Black's 12th move, but omits the White queen on a8. According to Fine, Blackburne played this game in a "blindfold seance". .

zanzibar: (Black to move...) [DIAGRAM] 7k /p4q1p/1pb5/2p5/4B2Q/2P1B3/P6P/7K b - - 0 1 I found this in Fine's Middle Game book (p088.d134) - he attributed it to a blindfold game Pillsbury played - but nothing more. * * * * * Curious - I couldn't find it in <MillBase>, even stripping

zanzibar: <MissS> your collection looks quite good for a start - but your inclusion of Walker's commentary about Morphy: Game Collection: Birmingham 1858 needs some balance. My impression (from memory) is that Morphy would gladly have been willing to participate - provided Staunton ...

zanzibar: <hmm> it's a shame all the collateral damage the war on drugs inflicted. And the unfair way such damage was meted out. * * * * * I guess I should do the etymology of "meted" next, but let's catch up with "bane": < <bane (n.)> Old English bana "killer, slayer, ...
   May-21-17 Vienna Game (C27)
zanzibar: Yes indeedy. But why not a quick one-line recap on the other page? BTW- can I input any give random FEN and find matching games? (Sorry if that's rather basic) .

zanzibar: Let's see... <Ingelby> - no <CG> page... <Smith> - no <CG> page... <Hughes> - no <CG> page... <Hampton> - Thomas Inglis Hampton Hampton was a member of St. George's club, so London press would have some coverage. So, again, do we have any ...
   May-21-17 Alekhine vs Hoelscher, 1933 (replies)
zanzibar: Fantastic link by <Stonehedge>, it settles the issue for me (even better than Winter really, since I can see the contemporaneous ref). I wonder if Mantia even published scans of Alekhine's notebooks? I also wonder what's the story of origins of the lot he discovered them in? ...
