Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-15-07  Karpova: <He was born on 22 March/3 April 1835 on the estate of Veryaevo in the district of Elatma in the Government of Taboff. His brother Andrew held for several years the portfolio of the Minister of Public Instruction. P.A.S. went to the Imperial Alexander Lyceum, St Petersburg until 1854, gaining a first gold medal. After employment in the Chancellery from 1857 to 1859, he worked in Munich, and then in England, where he stayed for 11 years, meeting the leading British statesmen. In 1870 he went to Carlsruhe, and subsequently moved on to Athens, where he stayed until 1879. In the summer of 1879 he was to be found in Constantinople, in which city he was appointed Russian Ambassador, although he never entered upon the duties. Then he did a four-year stint in Berlin (1880-1884), after which he left the diplomatic service. During the last decade of the century he became well known as a financial and economic expert. He listed his pastimes as pomiculture, architecture, the piano and chess. His eldest son died at the hands of peasants. After the revolution, in March 1917, P.A.S., as a senator, was appointed to a commission associated with the Senate, but was dismissed upon the accession of the Bolsheviks. Following a short illness he died on 28 March/10 April 1918 in Petrograd.> A large article on Saburov and his son (Peter Petrovich).

I'll bet his mother enjoyed that.

(P.S. Just kidding! I know you mean old style calendar/new style calendar.)

Now, I think this might be a game from Peter Petrovich Saburov.

PP Saburov:


(The father was stronger than the son:
PA Saburov:

Unfortunately, ICOfY strips out the Event/Site tags to save diskspace (a mistake, for sure).

Looking at all games by any Saburov gives one game from 1906, the next from 1967. Clearly different Saburov's involved.

It's known that P.P. Saburov played in a preliminary Ostend stage, and at Nuremberg in 1906. (Lutz's games on EDO are all in Russia - with only St. Petersburg in 1906).

Both son and father deserve pages (and thank goodness for Kaprova's quote of Winter - else this bio would be sorely lacking). Not for their games, but for their sponsorship of the game.

I also have, from Hyatt's Enormous db, this corr. game from 1904:
