  Tabanus: So they decided to have a playoff. They did not do that before the war.
Apr-05-22  Nosnibor: <Tabanus> I assume you are referring to W.W.2?Before W.W.1 there was a play off in 1911 between Atkins and Yates and two earlier playoffs involving Atkins in which he lost the first one to Napier and a later one which Atkins won.
