  Gregor Samsa Mendel: The first two games here obviously couldn't have been from Benjamin Martin. The first one was probably from D B Martin.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Is D B Martin any relation to the mysterious D B Cooper?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Well, D B Cooper is probably more closely related to D B Martin than to Benjamin Martin. The second game here may have been from D B Martin as well.
