  MissScarlett: <In June 1904 he played an 8 game match against the Pole, Paul Saladin Leonhardt, (1877 - 1934) followed by 2 more games, all of which are in the Pioneers database.

Judging by the game scores, something was amiss somewhere along the line, as in Game 3, Leonhardt simply played 1. Nf3 and got the full point. Did Passmore simply fail to turn up? In Game 8, Passmore played 3.Bb5 in a Ruy Lopez, and his opponent was then awarded the full point. In game 10, there are actually no moves at all, yet a draw was recorded. What was going on? Have the actual moves played been lost over time, or were some other irregularities involved?>


Anyway, I'm now interested in this Pioneers database. But where is it?


<Database of games by local players

During the life of "Chess Devon" we have collected games played by local players in tournaments, county games, club games etc. until we have accumulated circa 27,000 such games. The term "Local Players" rather loosely describes all players who have participated in these tournaments etc. We are willing to place this database on sale by download at the price of 12.>

Shall I start a collection? #ripoffbritain

  MissScarlett: Edochess correctly note that the 8-game match (five games up) with <Leonhardt> took place in January, not June, 1904:

The status of the <other two games> remains to be seen.

I note that games five and six of the match are in the <BCM>, February 1904, but let's see how many others I can turn up.

Six of the eight games were available at 365chess; the other two are stubs.

<The status of the <other two games> remains to be seen.>

A second match - set this time for three games up - was begun shortly after the first ended. The date was probably January 30th. The first game was drawn, and Leonhardt won the second; a third was <adjourned at a highly interesting stage.

The match, we regret to learn, has since been abandoned, owing to the grave illness of a near relative of one of the players.> Woolwich Gazette, February 19th 1904, p.7.
