|Apr-18-13|| ||whiteshark: "At a rapid tournament in Breslau in 1925, part of the first prize was enough silk to make six shirts. |
Nimzovich, taking it for granted that he would win, found out everything he could about the silk even before the tournament began.
As it happened, however, Mieses defeated him in the first round and went on to win the tournament and the silk."
|Apr-18-13|| ||JimNorCal: H Wagner did pretty well for himself in this tournament.|

|Feb-06-22|| ||Z free or die: Shouldn't there be 66 games for a RR-12?
Also, since most games are here was there a tournament book?
I.e. what were OLM's primary sources?
|Feb-06-22|| ||perfidious: <zed>, 66 is correct.|
|Feb-06-22|| ||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 tournament book by M.A. Lachaga to make this collection. Excellent annotations.
|Feb-06-22|| ||Williebob: It appears that the source quoted by <whiteshark> must be erroneous on at least one point; Mieses did not play this event. Could this have been a rapid tournament, however? I suppose the TB would mention it. Otherwise I think the writer just mixed up (made up?) events completely. |
Amusing list of oddball prizes in any case.
|Feb-07-22|| ||Z free or die: Thanks for the info <focus>. Here's a view of Lachaga's work:|
Lachaga is Argentinian, correct? Funny that.
I still wonder what his primary sources were.
Milcíades Angel Lachaga (1910 - 1986)
Has collected all the games and chronicles of the Chess Olympiads played in Argentina between 1939 and 1978. He was a member of the 'Círculo La Regence' (Villa del Parque district, in Buenos Aires) 1938.
For a nosedive into Argentinian chess in general and in particular Lachaga
chess historian GM Juan Sebastian Morgado from Buenos Aires can be recommended. He is the author of various well crafted (e.g. sourcing) chess books himself.
