|Dec-24-11|| ||brankat: Best wishes for the coming Holiday season my friend!|
|Jan-03-12|| ||Shams: <Calli> please add to game collection: They were surprised!
A Pincus vs J Jacobs, 1972|
|Jun-17-12|| ||vonKrolock: Hello <Calli> - There is some image (photo, etc.) known to Joseph Ney Babson (1852-1929)?! - There seems to be a gap in the records ... (thanks in advance)|
|Jun-17-12|| ||Thanh Phan: <vronKrolock> Found that quoted at twitter https://twitter.com/BabsonTask/stat...|
Have not find a photo or image yet, will check later
|Jun-18-12|| ||vonKrolock: Thank You, <Thanh Phan> . Hope sooner or later something will appear|
|Jun-20-12|| ||Calli: Sorry, I don't have any Babson photos.|
|Jun-21-12|| ||Phony Benoni: A portrait and profile of the young Joseph Ney Babson may be found beginning on page 4 of the <Chess Journal> for August, 1873, which is the first issue given here:|
|Jun-21-12|| ||vonKrolock: <Calli> Oh well - another mystery !?|
<Phony Benoni> Great find, thanks!
|Jun-21-12|| ||chancho: Joseph Ney Babson.
Dec 26, 1852 - Dec 20, 1929
|Jun-21-12|| ||Calli: What is that around Babson's neck? Would you call that an ascot?|
|Jun-22-12|| ||Phony Benoni: Obviously, it's a Chess Knot.|
|Jun-22-12|| ||Calli: LOL! Looks tight and uncomfortable. Maybe he was working on a sui-mate. |
Recently found Paris 1900. See tournament collection for link.
|Jul-09-12|| ||crawfb5: Per your post at the Biographer's Bistro regarding the 1893 "Impromptu" tournament, it would seem you are correct in that with more newspapers online it will be possible to straighten out some of the confusion.|
I am trying to straighten out the <other> NY 1893 ("Masters") tournament. The Library of Congress has issues of <The Sun> online and with only five games per round, <The Sun> published all the game scores. It appears they did the same for the "Impromptu" tournament, although I only spot-checked Round 1.
In any event, Showalter vs E Delmar, 1893 was played in the Masters, not the Impromptu. Here's a link to <The Sun>:
I'll drop you a note about any others from the Masters I find that you have in your Impromptu collection.

|Aug-18-12|| ||Benzol: <Calli> If you want to do Game Collection: Baden-Baden 1870 go for it. I've been trying to catch up with the Alyekhin tournaments of the 20's and 30's. |
|Sep-10-12|| ||TheFocus: I have been looking at <New York Impromptu 1893>. Whew!|
There are 24 games missing and 22 games in the database that should be added. Most are labeled only as New York with no way to tell what tournament they belong to.
I have all the missing games and will post them and my findings in several posts throughout the week.
|Sep-17-12|| ||vonKrolock: Hello, <Calli>. Very curious that <C. Schlechter - 1887> 'knot' ... Well, without <throwing crumbs to the fan> for the while ... But Spielmann was not a so to say primary source, like B. Englisch or (aha - another coincidence) the same S. Gold would be. Spielmann wrote on C. S. from Sweden, by F. Englund's request, around 1924 - Why the <learned to play with 13> could not be <he was already playing in his 13th year> - exactly between 1886 and 1887 !? - But playing in an obscure inter-clubs event in far-western Germany ?! (a 'contra' point...) - And another 'contra' point: Playing ar a reasonable level at 12 would stir some sensation - For instance, in the same 1887(M)WS we find that <the young David Albin, 12, is already able to solve the two-movers presented here> , and later <Albin Jr, solver> - - - But that other Schlechter was exactly <C.>, not "H", "W" or "Professor" Schlechter !!?? - (For me, for the while, the only <other> Schlechter appearing in history was Carl's father. the Schlechters were acquainted with Dr. Gold ...|
|Sep-17-12|| ||TheFocus: Please see my post at <Biographers Bistro> regarding dates for Monte Carlo 1903 according to <The Field>.|
|Sep-19-12|| ||Calli: <von krolock> A unknown boy from a chess city like Vienna travels far to play and achieves a sensational result for his age. WS however does not mention his age or that he is from Vienna. Then he does not play in another event for six years. Too crazy!|
|Dec-03-12|| ||crawfb5: <Calli> I note that in Game Collection: under construction - A Capa collection you have a number of Capablanca games from the 1911 New York Masters. I have been going through the <NY Sun> coverage to make a collection and noted some discrepancies. I agree with your dates, but several of your round numbers seem to be off. This is what I have for Capablanca (1/22/1911 - 2/3/1911 with no rest days):|
It looks to me like the Round 1 bye was skipped, as the cases where we disagree are where you have games listed as one round earlier than I do.
|Dec-25-12|| ||TheFocus: Merry Christmas!|
|Dec-31-12|| ||TheFocus: Happy New Year <Calli>!!|

|Mar-15-13|| ||thomastonk: <Calli> Google books id=lbBAAAAAcAAJ seems to be a CPC 1862, but unfortunately beginning around page 100 every second page is missing. Nevertheless, it could be interesting for your link list at Calli's Game Collections. Thank you very much, btw!|
|Mar-16-13|| ||Calli: <thomastonk> Thanks, added it to the list. Think I'll put "Chess Player's Magazine" in there too because it fills in the years 1863-67.|
