|Jun-25-18|| ||Phony Benoni: Annual fireworks display in Downtown Detroit tonight, celebrating the Independence Days of US and Canada.. Normally draws about a half-million people.|
It's a big one. I live maybe ten miles agaw and can still catch glimpses of it. Without a television.
|Jun-26-18|| ||Travis Bickle: Hey Mr Benoni, It must be a year of Sunday's since we last chatted.. My Cubs are ok.. Lack of quality pitching especially in the bullpen & the hitting is off & on.. How's them Tigers doing?|
|Jun-26-18|| ||Phony Benoni: Tigers aren't going anywhere but down, Travis. They're in a rebuilding mode with a bunch of kids. And now Miguel Cabrera's year -- and possibly career --- is over due to a ruptured bicep muscle. They mde it interesting for a while, but reality is setting in.|
Anxiously awaiting the start of football season. That's hwo bad it's gotten.
|Jul-16-18|| ||Stonehenge: <PB>
This game is not from the US Open but from the World Open:
G Zaichik vs Shabalov, 1993
|Jul-16-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Stonehenge> Thanks for checking, but this appears to be from the US Open. The game is printed in the round 4 bulletin from the US Open. |
In addition, here is the USCF crosstable from the World Open. #4 Shabalob and #16 Zaitchik did not meet.
|Jul-16-18|| ||Stonehenge: OK, you are the boss :)
I've changed it back to 94th US Open.
|Jul-17-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Stonehenge> Thanks. By the way, I haven't done detailed checking on most years since 1977, so if you find any other suspicious games please let me know.|
|Jul-17-18|| ||Stonehenge: Oh, I don't think you saw
Phony Benoni chessforum (kibitz #22484)
PGN can be found here:
|Jul-17-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Stonehenge> Yes, I did miss that note. My apologies.|
That collection was assembled long ago, and I have no idea where I got the dates They clearly wrong, however.
The appears to be an anomaly in the round dates, December 27 - January 4 is only nine days for a nine-round tournament, so if there was a rest day there must also have been a day with two rounds. Brit Base has rounds 3 $ 4 on Monday, December 30, which appears to be original schedule.
However, I found this report in the "London Guardian", December 31, 1935:
<"According to the programme, two rounds had been arranged for to-day...">
(Meaning Monday, Dec3ebmer 30, the date appearing in the by-line.)
<"...but the players in the premier tournament decided to play their fourth round games in advance yesterday.. ".>
which would indicate te fourth round was actually played on December 29, efore the third round on December 30.
There are other newspaper reports which also indicate games were played on the rest day. I can investigate further if it seems necessary.
I have no idea why they played the fourth round early instead of the third, unless they wanted to make life difficult for historians.
|Jul-18-18|| ||Stonehenge: The Britbase PGN in the Golombek-Tartakower fourth round game has this:|
the third and fourth rounds were both played on 30 December
in order to complete the schedule by the following Saturday, though the Times
tells us that some games were played in advance to avoid having two games on
one day (but doesn't mention which ones).
|Jul-18-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Stonehenge> While it would be better to have direct evidence from a British newspaper, I have located an Associated Press report dated <December 29> and printed in various newspapers. This version is from the "Boston Glob", Monday, December 30, 1935, page 6:|
<"BRITISH CHAMPION LOSES, FINE RETAINS CHESS LEAD>
<"C. H. Alexander of London, defeated W. Winter, British champion, in the third [sic] round of the international chess masters' tournament here today. Reuben Fine of New York led the field with a score of 2-0.
"Dr. S. Tartakower of Poland played to a draw with H. Golombek, London. Three games were adjourned.">
The report then list a summary of the games which matches those played in what we know as Round 4.
This seems good evidence confirming the statement in the "Guardian" that all the games in round 4 were played a day early on Sunday, December 29. Even saying the games were from "round 3" indicates the report assumed that because it was the third round played.
|Jul-19-18|| ||Stonehenge: Agreed then, I have changed the dates.
Third round on the 30th, fourth round on the 29th :)
|Jul-19-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Stonehenge> Thanks. I've worked on the introduction, so maybe Game Collection: Hastings 1935/36 can go for promotion now.|
|Jul-23-18|| ||Tabanus: Hastings (1935/36)|
Hope you like my make-up, or at at least not consider it vandalizing or bad presedence!
|Jul-23-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <Tabanus> It looks fine; thanks. I had forgotten about using the double brackets for italics.|
|Jul-24-18|| ||Tabanus: <PB> There are some new features, like putting \ behind a sentence to make it stand alone on a line. I also put an extra space between the 'xtab' and the scores.|
|Aug-14-18|| ||offramp: I have just seen your wonderful Podebrady page. Itís a lovely intro. Many thanks.|
|Aug-14-18|| ||Phony Benoni: Thanks. I didn't' know people still looked at that stuff!|
|Aug-14-18|| ||zanzibar: Those two comments belong in the Memorable Quotes page.|
|Aug-16-18|| ||martin moller: Hi Phony Benoni Can you help me out ? I would like to make a link to a chessplayer on my preference, but i have completely forgot how to do ! Thank you very much in advance|
|Aug-16-18|| ||takchess: PB , Here in New England we are feeling the Sox are built for regular season play but bullpen will sink them in the playoffs. A great run though.|
|Aug-16-18|| ||Phony Benoni: <martin moller> I'm not completely sure what you are asking about.|
I see that the biography on your member page has a number of links to Chessgames players pages, for instance
If you're asking how to add to this existing list, that can be done through the Pteferences page. First, go to the player's game page and copy the address. Then, on your Preferences page, paste that link intro the desired spot in "Your chessgames.com Bio."
When finished, click the <Update Profile> button at the bottom of the screen. The link should be added to your profile biography, and will appear the next time you search for your profile page.
If that is not what you're asking, I'm sorry for wasting your time. I don't know a lot about technical matters like this.
|Aug-17-18|| ||martin moller: Hi <Phony Benoni> Thank you for your help. :-)|
|Aug-17-18|| ||martin moller: It worked :-) Thank you again and have a nice weekend|
|Aug-17-18|| ||Yorkshire Fog: Hello Phony Benoni. May I ask what you think of my comments on A Zapata vs Van Wely, 1995 and Y Fleites vs B Lopez, 2001?|
Please delete this if you think it is Baloney. I shall understand.
