  MissScarlett: This a newly added game, but no source is provided. Neither the game nor a record of such a simul on this date appear in Skinner & Verhoeven.

The other blind game was Alekhine vs A H M Wap, 1925.

  MissScarlett: I see from the DB that there are several new games from simuls in December 1925. Do you have details of these occasions?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: On Saturday December 12th a 31b simul at VAS chess club in Amsterdam.


A scored +25 -2 =4.

December 14th a 28b simul at NRSV chess club in Rotterdam.

A scored +25 -1 =2.

He also played two blindfold games as mentioned. Perhaps the event tag should read 'blindfold game'.

December 18th a 37b simul at DD chess club in The Hague.

A scored +29 =8.

December 21st a 38b simul (of which two games were blind) at SMB chess club in Nijmegen.

A scored +36 -1 =1. One blind game is here: Alekhine vs C Bekink, 1925, the other one was against Buskens.

Separate from the simul?

  Stonehenge: To be more precise: a 30 board simul, of which two games were blindfolded.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: In which case, <Simul, 30b> with the game type as <blindfold>, is how I like to do things.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: Yes, that's better. You're welcome to submit a correction slip.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Tis done for this and the other games. <Blindfold simul> can be used where all the games are such.
