I know this is an attempt at a snarky-knock, but really, it's rather presumptuous of <Missy> to represent Dr. Harding.
The good doctor and I have a reciprocal relation - he's able to use my research, like the stone worker find.
But let's examine the role of <Missy> to complain about $$ or ¡ê¡ê ... given his complaining about <ChessBase> policies,
Nils Grandelius (kibitz #72)
or his outright solicitation of <CG> funding for personal gain,
Kibitzer's Café (kibitz #222074)
Santa Claus (kibitz #1881)
Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (kibitz #3233)
or his unending reliance of <Tab> for genealogical research:
Biographer Bistro (kibitz #17487)
Biographer Bistro (kibitz #17238)
Biographer Bistro (kibitz #17059)
How could anyone think <MissS> was <Edward Winter> is a bit beyond me.

I saw this before and was going to let it pass, but isn't that my find?
Joseph Henry Blackburne (kibitz #182)
I don't know what your game is, but if you annoy me further I'm going to add you to my little black book just below <Edward Winter>.
|Feb-10-18|| ||zanzibar: <MissS> yes, I've updated my blog page to credit you making the find first.|
I really only recalled <offramp>'s promise to visit the site from that period of time - and just stumbled across the original article again when doing some research on another topic.
My page didn't really have me making an original find, and while I'd normally put your posts at the top of the page, I think it reads better as is (especially given the fun little drawing of Blackburn aside the article).
Your attribution is at the bottom, in plain-view. Still wondering if Harding ever came across it, and just deemed it not worthy of inclusion, or not creditable enough.
|Apr-12-18|| ||Joshka: This guy never played Morphy I don't believe, was it for the same reasons as Steinitz? Didn't get really good until he was in his 30's?? Any help appreciated!|
|Apr-12-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: <Joshka>
Maybe Blackburne took up chess because of Morphy, I suppose. Because only after Morphy retired Blackburne became professionally interested in chess :)
|Apr-12-18|| ||Nosnibor: <Joshka> Blackburne was already in the world`s elite players in his late twenties finishing in third place at Baden-Baden in July 1870 beating Steinitz,De Vere,Paulsen,Winawer,etc. He was less than 18 when Morphy left England but there is no doubt that he was influenced by his blindfold play which he himself took up later.|
|Nov-28-18|| ||Blue Morphine: I heard that Blackburne was a huge fan of Morphy. He was an amazing successor though. Not as accurate as morphy, but surely as stylish as him.|
|Nov-30-18|| ||MissScarlett: I'm wondering what he was usually called apart from <Mr. Blackburne> and <Sir>. Did people just call him <Joe>?|
|Jan-13-19|| ||zanzibar: <<The British Committee having charge of the testimonial for J. H. Blackburne, the celebrated English blindfold player, and who for many years was the chess champion of Great Britain, and who is
now seventy years of age, having been born December 10, 1842, announce that they have made a definite arrangement whereby an annuity of £104 will be secured to Mr. and Mrs. Blackburn for their lives, on the death of either, the same amount will be paid to the survivor for his or her life. The trustee of this fund is Mr. A. Bonar Law, M. D., a member of Parliament. Certainly the trustees have made good disposition of this fund, as both Mr.
and Mrs. Blackburne will now be absolutely secured from want for the balance of their days. >|

|Mar-15-19|| ||MissScarlett: Not only was Blackburne a chess professional (one whose main source of income was chess) for several decades - he was that rare bird who didn't rely on journalism or publishing for a substantial part of their income. Was he the only British player before the 1970s of whom that could be said? For this purpose, I exclude foreigh masters like Steinitz, Zukertort or Lasker who spent extended periods living in Britain.|
|Mar-31-19|| ||Jean Defuse: ...
Steinitz in 'The Field':
'The interesting game published below was played at the West End Chess Club
between Messrs. Blackburne and Potter a fortnight ago, for a small prize
offered by Mr. Ballard.
Both parties agreed to a displacement of the pieces,in order to waive all advantages from the knowledge of the openings, and it was therefore arranged that on both sides the Bishops should be placed on the Knights' squares, and the Knights on the squares of the Bishops.
We have adopted the usual notation, as if the pieces had been placed in the ordinary way.'

still computer can't solved
Italian game two knight defense , knight attack blackburne varition
strong chess player ( but made some blunders :D It's normal)
|Oct-03-19|| ||Messiah: <Jean Defuse> maybe the earliest example of a FRC game.|
|Dec-10-19|| ||Nosnibor: There is no mention in Tim Harding`s biography of a simul given by Blackburne on October 12th 1910 in Leicester where he played 21 players.He lost one game to Dr. H.Mason, the first Leicestershire champion,drew 10 and won 10.Blackburne`s fee was two guineas (£2.20) which was confirmed in his letter dated September16th 1910 from his address at39 Stillness Road,Forest Hill,S.E.He was a very busy person because shortly before this he had played some games with Gunsberg and on the 13th October he was playing a simul in Coventry.|

Such snippets from the archives are always welcome, but are there any unpublished games scores of, say, Henry Atkins?
|Dec-10-19|| ||Nosnibor: <MissScarlett> I have managed to trace an unpublished game from 1911.This was a simul Atkins played against Victor Lovell whilst contesting 21 other boards. The game was drawn following a Vienna Opening in 35 moves. I will submit the game if it is of interest.|
|Dec-10-19|| ||Nosnibor: <MissScarlett> Since my last post I have discovered another game between the same opponents which was played on the 19th November 1908 whereby Atkins gave the odds of a Rook and won in 46 moves.|
|Dec-10-19|| ||MissScarlett: <I will submit the game if it is of interest.> Do it!|
|Dec-11-19|| ||Nosnibor: <MissScarlett> Below is the game first mentioned which mistakenly I had said was a draw but in fact Atkins won it in 38 moves.
