  Phony Benoni: Di Felice, in <Chess Results 1921-1930>, gives this as a win for White. I've checked a few databases online, and it's generally given 0-1 as here, but ChessLab says 1-0.

I'm sure it should be 1-0, but wish there was some contemporary account to back that up. Big online databases will usually just copy each other without checking, but it's good to be sure.

  whiteshark: <Phony Benoni> The crosstable of <The Hague 1921> said Marco scored vs Mieses: (scroll down)
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: So we have a very fine starting situation, at least. Can we agree on that?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <whiteshark> Looks like we have duelling crosstables as well as duelling databases. Here's another version of the crosstable showing Mieses the winner:

We're going to have to get a copy of the tournament book to clear this up definitively.

  Phony Benoni: <whiteshark> My apologies. I have got to break that habit of deleting messages when I want to revise them.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Phony> In my only Dutch chessbook, "Max Euwe", is also a crosstable and it gives Mieses scored vs Marco, so that

6th Mieses (4 points) and
7th Marco (3 points)

as given in your <second last> post.


Aug-16-09  Calli: Its 1-0 because otherwise the crosstable doesn't come out right. We get Marco with 4 points as on CG

Unless someone has an XT where Mieses and Marco have changed places, I don't see how this game is not 1-0.

  Pawn and Two: The crosstable in, "Akiba Rubinstein: The Later Years", shows Mieses as the winner in this game.

Mieses scored 3 wins (Euwe, Marco & Yates) and 2 draws (Maroczy & Tartakover) for a total of 4 points, and a 6th place finish.

Marco scored 2 wins (Euwe & Yates) and 2 draws (Davidson & Kostic) for a total of 3 points, and a 7th place finish.

The book states that reference material used included the tournament book, "The Hague 1921" by B. Kagan.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <Calli> <Pawn and Two> OK, that sounds definite to me. A reference from the tournament book trumps everything.

I'll submit a correction, and check back in a year or two.
