  Tabanus: <whiteshark> Could it be Ossip S. Bernstein?

Jun-15-13  Karpova: Just an educated guess, but I can hardly imagine Ossip then still participating in regional Soviet Tournaments as he was a successful lawyer in France and also much too strong for such meagre results.

  Tabanus: <Karpova> Are you sure it's regional?

What does "(Soviet) City Championship" mean. Anyway Ossip Bernstein has no other games from 1926, 1928 and 1929.

  Tabanus: Well the games we have here is from the USSR quarterfinals (http://www.rogerpaige.webspace.virg...) where he ended last. So I guess <Karpova> is right. Even he retired from chess in 1907, as Larsen was told.

In the first preliminary group he (Yakov S Vilner) shared last place with the Moscow pervokategornik A. Bernshteyn (3 points out of a possible 8).

pervo = first

  Phony Benoni: I suspect that the two (Soviet) events were simply the Moscow City Championship.

Gaige gives "A. S. Bernstein", b. 1902 in Bobriusk, Mogilev, URS, but no death date. That would be current-day Babruysk, in the Mogilev Region of Belarus. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babruysk

If it were Ossip Bernstein, his poor showing at Odessa 1929 could be attributed to nearly being executed there a decade earlier. Enough to make anyone nervous.

Assuming, of course, that Wikipedia has the story right.
