Dec-10-13  RookFile: I guess Keres didn't do himself any favors by playing in this tournament. Poor Paul. He was just there to play chess, not get caught up on politics.

Is this game really lost? I thought there was a tournament book. Somebody check in McGowan's Richter book.

Did you check 365chess.com? It usually is more complete than <CG>, and readily accessible.

That's how rumours get started. I don't frequent sites of ill-repute!

Jan-24-21  Z4all: Nice, <Jean D>.

Didn't somebody mention a tb? Was this game in there? Seems <365> has all games to the tb, suggesting the existence of a tb.

Wonder if <Jean> score matches <365>'s ... ?

  MissScarlett: 65 out of 66; the 62 is from the second group. McGowan may have been the first to uncover Bogo-Richter.

  MissScarlett: The tournament book referred to is one listed by Skinner & Verhoeven's book on Alekhine: <Brinckmann, A. Europameisterschaft Munchen 1942. Europa-Schach-Rundschau, Band I. Den Haag/Leipzig: Blomer, 1943.> Either Gillam didn't have access or it didn't include all the games.
