  GrahamClayton: 1913 New York State champion.
Sep-29-13  thomastonk: More than a week ago, I thought that this player has deserved a win or a draw in this database, and it took not too long to find a win over Geza Maroczy in the championship of the Manhattan Chess Club in 1926 ("Brooklyn Daily Eagle" of January 28, 1926). But I was unable to make the game score complete, because the quality of the digital copy is bad.

For those who like a puzzle, here is a snippet: (the original can be found at Fulton History).

I think until move 17 the moves are as follows: 1. d4 d5 2. ♘f3 e6 3. e3 ♘f6 4. ♗d3 ♗d6 5. O-O O-O 6. b3 b6 7. ♗b2 ♗b7 8. ♘bd2 ♘bd7 9. ♘e5 c5 10. f4 ♖c8 11. ♕f3 ♕c7 12. ♘xd7 ♘xd7 13. ♕h3 f5 14. g4 cxd4 15. ♗xd4 e5 16. fxe5 ♗xe5 17. ♗xf5 ♖xf5

But then?

Jan-24-14  denopac: Well done <thomastonk>; the rest of the game is 18. gxf5 ♗xd4 19. exd4 ♕xc2 20. ♕e3 ♘f6 21. ♕f4 ♗a6 22. ♖f2 h6 23. ♖e1 ♕c3 24. ♖g2 ♘e4 25. ♕e5 ♕e3+ 0-1

I agree that George Beihoff deserves at least one win in this database. I'll submit PGN and try to get this rectified.
