I'm sorry - <Budowski's mother was Margarita> and his father was Issar!

  Tabanus: Berliner Tageblatt, 28 October 1925, p. 5 reports of the Capa simul vs 30 players "yesterday" with the score +19 -1 =10. Hence 1925.10.27. It also says another simul planned for "today" (28 Oct).

  Tabanus: Berliner Tageblatt, 27 October 1925, p. 15 says Capa is in Berlin and will hold a simul vs 30 players "today" (1927.10.27).

Berliner Tageblatt, 29 October 1925, p. 15 says simul no. 2 was held yesterday (1927.10.28).

  Phony Benoni: I've noticed that the <Brooklyn Daily Eagle> used the name <Brooklyn Eagle> from September 5, 1938 to the cessation of its run in 1955. Hence, references to "BDE" during that interval are technically anachronistic.

But, heck, we're all friends here, and we know what we're talking about. Only cranky retired librarians would get fussy about something like this.

Dec-23-20  cameosis: <jameschess> do you happen to have the complete bulletin and could you share it? thanks in advance!

  MissScarlett: Was a conclusion ever reached on what country codes to assign to former colonies of the British Empire?
Dec-25-20  jameschess: <cameosis> Yes, I have the bulletin, coverage all the games in men & women championship. I will post the tournament report here later.

  MissScarlett: <Tab>, have a look for William Josiah Tuckett, with particular reference to his DOD and the circumstances thereof.
Dec-31-20  Petrosianic: I was thinking about what a 1914 match similar to USSR vs. World might look like. I was thinking something like:

bd 1: Lasker
bd 2: Tarrasch
bd 3: Schlechter
bd 4: Maroczy

Alternates: Vidmar, Teichmann, Spielmann

bd 1: Capablanca
bd 2: Rubinstein
bd 3: Alekhine
bd 4: Marshall

Alternates: Janowsky, Tartakower, Bernstein

Capa-Lasker would be a fairly even matchup.

Rubinstein had a big lifetime winning score against Tarrasch, with no defeats. Allies on Board 2.

Schlechter was 2-0 against Alekhine but their last game was in 1911. During the war, I'd expect Alekhine to win.

Maroczy had a respectable winning score against Marshall, so probably the Centrals would be the favorites.

Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Cuba was a neutral country in 1914. I'd replace Capa with Atkins. Are you sure Rubinstein would've been on the Allies' side?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Retireborn: One might also question whether Marshall would have wanted to play for the Allies in 1914.
