Mar-29-16  RookFile: Strange game. Black wins a piece, then they call it a draw. He must have been a jolly good fellow.

19.B-B4 looks weird.

Descriptive Notation was so flaky.

Mar-29-16  suenteus po 147: If this game is from a simultaneous exhibition, then I would say Hardiman was fortunate Reshevsky offered him a draw. And he probably accepted it gladly at that.

  MissScarlett: Hardiman's panegyric in the <ACB>, Sept-Oct 1921, p.170:

<Referring to Rzeschewski's nineteenth move, Mr. Hardiman writes: <Here, you see, Sammy made a slip, overlooking my Knight on Kt3. He did not say so, but played on until the thirty-second move. Then he looked at me, saying: 'I give draw.' We shook hands. I could not let go until I kissed his hand. If given good care, he will give to the chess world much as did Paul Morphy and will trim them all.>>

Mar-29-16  suenteus po 147: <MissScarlett> Is that passage genuine? Or are you trolling me?

  MissScarlett: Someone recently accused me of trolling the whole chess world. How little they know me:
Mar-29-16  suenteus po 147: <MissScarlett> My apologies for the accusation by way of question. I guess it speaks more to my own self-esteem. I found it difficult to believe there was historical/textual evidence to give credence to my armchair speculation. I presumed (wrongly!) I was being taken for a ride.

How does one troll the whole chess world, precisely? Sounds like an awesome feat!

The Watch Word April 1927

Charles B. Hardiman

Born in Rochester, N. Y., in 1871, he later moved to Utica and came to Elgin to live in 1882, and for two years prior to entering the employ of the factory was engaged as an apprentice for the Moseley Lathe company.

Mr. Hardiman is known by his many friends as a ardent lover of beautiful flowers and takes great interest in fine gardening.

In the past, he has been noted as a great chess player, which was one of his many hobbies. He has met some of the greatest chess players in the world, and has played many of them, including the champion of the world, Capablanca, and the noted Polish boy, the little "chess wizard", Samuel Rzeschewski. After playing for hours with the two named champions, the best he could do, as Mr. Hardiman has often said, was to get a draw. Mr. Hardiman has been given great credit for this remarkable playing by his many admirers. Edward Lasker, Sanitary engineer of Sears Roebuck company at that time, served as referee for the chess match between Mr. Hardiman and the little wizard, Samuel Rzeschewski.
