|Nov-07-05|| ||Jamesbowman: Very interesting he played six years post-mortem, I was always impressed with Korchnoi's tenasity but clearly this is a topper.|
|Nov-07-05|| ||sneaky pete: He's a baby compared to Alexander MacDonnell.|
|Jun-10-06|| ||BIDMONFA: John Stuart Morrison|
MORRISON, John S.
|Dec-07-08|| ||jinga: Wait... When Morrison died in 1975, how he could play his last game in 1981???|
|Dec-08-08|| ||whiteshark: For two consecutive days <Player of the Day>|
|Dec-07-11|| ||brankat: <POTD> again :-)
He did win 6 Canadian championships. Had some good results against well known masters of 1910s and '20s: Maroczy, Tartakower, Janowski, Ed Lasker, Euwe.
R.I.P. master J.S.Morrison.
|Dec-07-11|| ||Penguincw: Happy 112nd birthday!|
|Dec-07-11|| ||Petrosianic: What do you think he's going to do to have a happy 112nd birthday? Go out on the town?|
|Dec-07-11|| ||Penguincw: < Petrosianic: What do you think he's going to do to have a happy 112nd birthday? Go out on the town? >|
No. Let's just say it's more like a milestone or something.
|Dec-07-11|| ||monopole2313: Any relation to Robert Morrison, another fine Canadian player?|
|Dec-07-11|| ||Eastfrisian: Another player, I have never heard from.|
|Dec-08-11|| ||Phony Benoni: Actually, it was his 122nd birthday. Even more cause for celebration!|
|Dec-08-11|| ||brankat: This is the second time in 3 years J.S.Morrison has been POTD for two consecutive days! Why such a preferential treatment?|
|Dec-08-11|| ||Penguincw: Hmm. In my less than one year experience on chessgames.com, have never saw a player being Player of the Day in back to back days. Maybe they havn't fixed it yet.|
|Dec-08-11|| ||whiteshark: The whole thing looks fishy.|
|Sep-25-15|| ||Phony Benoni: In this picture from the 1913 Western Championship Morrison is seated in the center, looking every bit the rugged, Hollywood prototype. Oh, those sexy Canadians:|
