   Jan-29-23 Koltanowski vs J Silverman, 1937
John Saunders: I've just posted a collection of games from this event at BritBase - - which shows a different ending to this game. Though I've given a reference - CHESS, Vol.2 page 203 - I don't personally have access to this volume at present. Could ...
   Jan-28-23 B Eley vs Miles, 1973
John Saunders: John Nunn didn't play in the 1973 Birmingham International. Black in this game was in fact Tony Miles. I'll post a correction. I've collected some games from this tournament at BritBase:
   Dec-17-22 T H Tylor vs R P Michell, 1931 (replies)
John Saunders: Tony Gillam's booklet (<Hastings 1929/30, Canterbury 1930, Hastings 1930/31>, published 1999) gives the finish as 34 Bf2 Ne5 35 a5 1-0. In all probability someone subsequently must have mistakenly input 34...e5. I've not been able to find any primary sources but the ...
   Dec-05-22 Tartakower vs G J Wood, 1947
John Saunders: The tournament book - Hastings Congress 1946-1947 by H Kmoch & L Prins (Chess, Sutton Coldfield, 1947) - gives 30 Qh4. A contemporary regional newspaper (Staffordshire Advertiser, Saturday 11 January 1947) gives 30 Qf4.
   Nov-24-22 Bronstein vs Teschner, 1954 (replies)
John Saunders: Re move 49: the cited source is Bronstein's The Sorcerer's Apprentice, page 276. BCM, February 1952, page 42, is not a source for this move as the game score is incomplete; it gives a diagram after 52...cxd6 and subsequent moves. Both sources have 67...Kf7.
   Aug-17-22 Peter M Jamieson
John Saunders: I have been reliably informed this evening that Peter Jamieson's middle name is not Michael but McKeich. I've just been through BritBase amending all his name references thus.
   Jun-22-22 Herbert Lieske
John Saunders: From CHESS, May 1950, page 165 "P.C.C. PERSONALITIES (No. 13) H. P. LIESKE To become Champion of the Postal Chess Club is no mean feat. To score eleven wins out of twelve games in doing so, is truly remarkable. Who is this new star in British postal chess ? Mr. Lieske was ...
   Jun-07-22 A R Thomas vs P J Waters, 1968
John Saunders: As of today's date this game is misattributed to Ronald Thomas and R J Waters. In fact White was Andrew Rowland Benedick Thomas and Black was Peter J Waters. The game was played in round 3 of the West of England Championship (Penzance) on 13 April 1968 and published in BCM, ...
   Jun-07-22 A J Morley vs R Thomas, 1977 (replies)
John Saunders: The explanation for the 1-0 result despite White being clearly losing in the final position is that Black sealed his 41st move but found out later he had placed the carbon paper in upside down and thus his move was not recorded. He was awarded a loss. Source: ...
   Jun-07-22 Ronald Thomas
John Saunders: Ron Thomas's death on 6 January 2021, aged 81, was reported on the English Chess Forum this morning
