TheFocus: <Z free or die: Shouldn't there be 66 games for a RR-12?> M Bluemich vs Nimzowitsch, 1925 should be added to the tournament (round 4). Saemisch lost to Nimzowitsch in the third round by default. <Also, since most games are here was there a tournament book?> I used the ...

TheFocus: <Granny O Doul: He seemed like a pleasant guy when I met him, which seems to have been most people's experience, so let me just call him a pleasant guy. I had heard about the car accident mentioned in his Wikipedia article, but never was very clear about its actual effect on ...
   Feb-03-22 Lasker vs V Thoresen, 1919 (replies)
TheFocus: <MissScarlett: Which is correct - 25 or 18 boards?. I looked back into the <FocusSuperDuper LaskerDatabase>, and have no notation on where I got this score from. I will say that, until I find evidence otherwise, that I pulled the number out of my hat., or I just typed it ...

TheFocus: <Olavi> <Apparently the source is The London Fortnightly 1892> This is often cited incorrectly as coming from "London Chess Fortnightly", it is not there. It is actually from<Süddeutsche Schach-Zeitung>, February 9, 1890, pg. 24.
   Apr-27-21 Schlechter vs Tarrasch, 1896 (replies)
