(Main A had also two winners -- Rubinstein and Duras. Their match was still undecided 1-1 when Rubinstein had to leave. As an exception to the general rule, the decision was made to confirm the master title on both of these players.)

"It involves comparing the treatment of <Georg Schories (interned in WW1)> with Horatio Caro (if he was interned in WW1 by the Germans). I have a big problem in discovering what happened to Caro after October 1911 (his last mention in Germany magazines) until his death in London in December 1919. However, I am plodding on with building up a picture of Schories.
I have a problem around <his 'match' with O'Hanlon.> I have one game from Mark Orr's website and David says he has a second. Can you help?
Your work on <O'Hanlon, Schories> and Caro all sounds very interesting. <I didn't know of the O'Hanlon-Schories match> ..."

There are a lot of interesting facts in it, but I can't translate them now.
|Sep-19-07|| ||whiteshark: Here is the antecedently mentionend game O’Hanlon — Shories:
|Sep-19-07|| ||Chessical: "Master George Schories was a highly talented chess personality, who appeared destined for outstanding achievements in both areas of chess - over the board and in problem composition, but due to misfortune he was unable to achieve harmonious development. |
His was an eventful life, originally working in handicrafts, he travelled to Paris then England, which for many decades he made his home. He took part with honour in numerous English tournaments, and in 1905 at Barmen he achieved the German Master title (RR - defeating Tartakower in a mini match).
In 1907, he played successfully at Ostende master tournament (RR - he won the amateur competition ahead of Hector Shoosmith, and then played less successfully in the General Masters' tournament). During the war, he suffered internment, and then returned home to Germany. His last tournament was at the Bad Pyrmont (German Championship of 1933) in which he was the oldest participating master.
We have a number of splendid chess problems by Schories. Whilst his problem composition life's work is not outstanding; but all his problems were carefully and critically crafted..."

I'd say that January 7th should be Keres' Day forever, but that's is only my choice.

"The following game was played the “Championship” Tourney of the “Northern Counties C.U.” at Blackpool. At the conclusion of the Tourney Messrs Wahltuch (Manchester) and Shories (Sheffield) tied with equal scores of 6 out of a possible 7, Wahltuch losing to Shories (in game below), and Shories to Mr Lobel, of Manchester. The concluding strokes of this game are extremely good, the mate threatened being pretty"
