  Phony Benoni: The date currently given for this game (<December 1923>) cannot be correct, as it was published in the American Chess Bulletin for <January 1923>, p. 15.

The natural assumption would be that December 1922 is correct, but I can't find confirmation of that.

Even January 1923 is not impossible. Helms was known to publish issues late that would carry reports on events which occurred after the cover date. But a full year is simply out of the question.

  MissScarlett: <The natural assumption would be that December 1922 is correct, but I can't find confirmation of that.>

How about O Field vs O Tenner, 1923 (kibitz #95) which points to Helms's account in the <New York Evening Post> of December 27th 1922?

  Phony Benoni: <MissScarlett> I feel pretty silly right now. Glanced at the previous kibitzing, but obviously no in enough detail.

I know you have a reputation to uphold, but...seriously?

  MissScarlett: Steinitz vs A E Blackmar, 1891 (kibitz #3)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <keypusher> <MissScarlett> is quite right. Yes, I have problems with my eyesight, and this can lead to mistakes. But it's up to me to deal with this instead of using it as an excuse.

In this case, I was simply lazy for not examining the previous kibitzing more thoroughly.

  MissScarlett: <PB> is well aware of the esteem in which I hold which I mean, I occasionally deign to notice his existence.

My message to <keypusher> - keep your nose ooooot of my affairs.

As the (a?) better angel of your nature, I'm in no position to do that.

  perfidious: <PB> erred; no problem. His contributions here across the years have earned him the respect of all. No-one cares what <the divine misss> says in order to slag yet another poster, for God knows what ridiculous reason.
Jul-12-19  morfishine: If we were all expected to read every kbitz of every game we visited, nothing would get done!

I'm with <Phony Benoni> and Scarlett can go jump in a lake

Jul-12-19  Kay Sadeeya: What about 14. h3?
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <Kay Sadeeya: What about 14. h3?>

Surprisingly, SF10 finds that it doesn't work, as White can't stop the enemy queen from infiltrating: 14.h3 Qf5! 15.Nxc5 Qg6 16.g3 Qh5 17.h4 Qf5 18.Kh2 Ng4+ 19.Kg1 Ne5 20.Kh2 g5! 21.Nc3 (21.Rg1? Ng4+ forces mate; 21.Nd2 gxh4 and if White retakes, ...Qf4+ forces mate) 22.gxh4 Bg2!! wins.

There doesn't seem to be a defense by move 14. As <Calli> pointed out, White's position seems bad well before that.

Jul-13-19  Kay Sadeeya: <keypusher> Thank You. I did see that on a Youtube demonstration after I posted.

The video suggested; If; 14.h3 then, 14.Qf5, planning to go to Qg6.

It is far beyond my ability to see without help, I'm just beginning to learn. Beautiful game, thanks again.

Jul-14-19  kontrippo: Before this game, I didn't hear about any of those gentlemen. It's good to know this nice game. If you want, you can watch my version of the game with a classical music at the back:
