  1. Alekhine's Tournaments and Matches 1902-1946

    There are many links to <Tournament Pages> and supplementary games collections here, and I will provide at least one game from each event, except where no game appears to be available.

  2. Lasker's Great British Tour (1908)
    Northern Whig, 2nd January 1908, p.3:

    <It will be gladsome news to all lovers of the Royal game that Dr. Lasker has not, as stated, abandoned his visit to the United Kingdom. He was detained by business, and hopes to arrive in this country about the middle of the present month. In addition to his engagements in the metropolis, he has arranged to visit eighty provincial centres, where he hopes to give exhibitions and lectures.>

    Captain King's column in the <Hampshire Telegraph> of February 22nd, p.11, crediting Lasker's representative, reports that after 11 engagements in London, Lasker is heading to the provinces. A breakdown of the first 6 displays gives his score as +99 =21 -4.

    Yorkshire Telegraph & Star, May 9th 1908, p.3:

    <A “Cross Country” Chess Record.

    Dr. Lasker, the chess master, has brought his English tour to an end with a fine record. In 64 exhibitions he played 1,349 games, of which he won 1,094, drew 196 and lost only 59. In addition he played eight consultation games, seven of which he won, the other being left drawn. Probably no chess master has played so many games in so short a time, and no one has ever achieved a higher percentage of wins in such a large number of games.>

    BCM 1908 notices on tour: p.21; 108 <During his stay in London he lectured and played at eleven London and suburban chess clubs, making a total record of 183 wins, 11 losses and 38 draws.>; p.214 <Since our last issue he has fulfilled engagements at Rochdale, Burnley, North Manchester, Manchester, Leeds, Brighouse, Bradford, Kent Congress, and the Hastings Club.>

  3. Morphy - Maurian
    Paul Morphy and his friend Charles Maurian played dozens of recorded games. As might be expected, the dates, moves and locations of the game scores found in databases are not always accurate. The purpose of this collection to examine what is in the CG DB and make corrections where necessary.

    The first nine games we look at were originally published in the Dubuque Chess Journal (DCJ) in January 1876. The DCJ game number is noted. A date is noted where the DCJ gives one and added to the CG DB. http://hdl.handle.net/2027/nyp.3343...
