chesshistoryinterest: Thanks very much for this, <hemy>. And for the great links. In a posting a while ago, <jessicafischerqueen> recommended to date a tournament from when the first move on the board was made to when the last move was made. I agree with this. However, ...
   Apr-05-20 Mar del Plata (1941) (replies)
chesshistoryinterest: <hemy> has provided a link to the tournament book in his post on Biographer Bistro here: Biographer Bistro (kibitz #20531) The tournament ended on 2 April 1941.
   Apr-03-20 Vienna Chess Society Winter Tournament (1895/96) (replies)
chesshistoryinterest: <jnpope> <In regard to the event ending date... the game date field only accepts one date so 4/26 is the start date of the games in the last round. I have not researched any postponement and adjournment days so the event may have run until 4/30 (or that was a ...

chesshistoryinterest: <hemy> That's very interesting, informative and pretty convincing - it's clear you know what you are talking about. Perhaps the Estonians could be regarded as fairly "neutral" in this respect - they are neither Russians; nor do they add "s" or "as" to their ...
   Feb-17-20 Paul List (replies)
chesshistoryinterest: This is exactly right. For his book "Paul Felix Schmidt" (2017), Gillam went through a similar process and published the crosstable he worked out in the book, saying "This is a very obscure tournament; the final table is probably being published for the first time." ...

chesshistoryinterest: <hemy> <The "5th May" is a mistake. It happen because is not clear what written on gravestone. By enlarging gravestone image we can see the date properly - "May 3, 1902".> You're right! Amazing the difference when enlarged. The key part of the "3" is faded ...
   Feb-15-20 Vytautas Skibniauskas
chesshistoryinterest: <hemy> <Maybe the wrong spelling by Mikenas became the source for other publications using the name "Skibiniauskas".> Interesting how one mistake made someone regarded as authoritative can become generic and widely repeated. "Skibniauskas" it is, then. ...
   Feb-14-20 Paul Vaitonis
chesshistoryinterest: <hemy> Found this, sorting through my stuff. Has more significance now than it did! "Waba Maa", 26 March 1932, page 6 Column written during Mikenas's visit to Tallinn in the middle of the 1932 Macht match (and shortly after
   Feb-05-20 Vladas Mikenas
chesshistoryinterest: The 1931 Olympiad in Prague (11-26 July 1931) started just 5 days after the end of these matches. So they were probably training matches for it. Curiously, given the match results, Mikenas was Board 1 for the Lithuanian team, while Vistaneckis was only Board 3 (where he
   Feb-01-20 M Birmanas (replies)
chesshistoryinterest: <hemy> Butnorius sounds like he was a really great guy from what you say. One wonders why such bad things happen to such good people. His website has indeed disappeared/been taken over, as I found. The tables on the "Margiris" relate only to events that Arlauskas ...
