Nov-10-06  WarmasterKron: Kolty's opponent would later go on to play a simul of his own, in which he drew every game. It's said he was Furst among equals.


I'll get my coat.

Dec-28-08  YoungEd: I wonder if this is the same E.A. Furst who self-published a series of "Chess Artistry" books. They were essentially puzzle books; I had a couple, and they weren't bad.

  whiteshark: He doesn't know the Furst thing.

  whiteshark: Furst quality games only.
Sep-30-12  billyhan: The game's illegal if Black was Furst.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: This game wasn't the Furst to finish, since four players lost in even fewer moves.
