Dec-22-08  WhiteRook48: So he lost to NN and won W H Banks with two petty opening traps
May-02-10  BobCrisp: Poor dude. He played a tournament game vs Alekhine, at the Major Open in Portsmouth in 1923 but the chess press was too busy with the British Championship and the score has been lost to posterity.

Doesn't sound like we missed much, though: <Most of the onlookers gathered round Alekhine's board for the short time this game lasted. The master made short work of his opponent.> (Birmingham Post)

I don't think he played Alekhine ever,considering he was born in 1920!

May-02-10  BobCrisp: So he played Znosko-Borovsky as 4 year old?
May-02-10  Albertan: <BobCrisp: So he played Znosko-Borovsky as 4 year old?>

Anything is possible when you are talking about chess prodigies.

May-02-10  BobCrisp: So why couldn't he play Alekhine as a 3-y-old? Where's the sense or logic in anything you say?

I made a mistake by saying what I did above. It is possible for him to have played as a 3 year old.

May-02-10  BobCrisp: His only being about 3 feet tall would also explain why Alekhine made short work of him.
