  MissScarlett: <From a blindfold simul in Basingstroke, England in January, 1901.>

Per Whyld, based on the <New Yorker Staats-Zeitung> of January 13th 1901.

But the <Reading Mercury, Oxford Gazette, Newbury Herald and Berks County Paper> (to give it its full title), of December 22nd 1900, p.6, reveals that it took place on Monday, December 17th, in the Town Hall. Lasker won all six games, whilst Maroczy (with whom Lasker was on tour) played a 30 board simul, scoring +28 =2.

When this occasion was publicised in the <Berkshire Chronicle> of December 8th, p.7, Lasker was due to give the simul, and Maroczy, the blindfold.

The score (sent by Maroczy) turns up in the <Standard> of December 24th, p.9., where it's dubbed <A perfect gem of a game, even if it were not one of six, played simultaneously, blindfold.>
