Jul-04-16  zanzibar: Where's the other game from the RR2 pairing of the tournament (Vienna 1898)?

Ahh, it too would be a stub, if one were to have a record of the game.

Without a mention in the intro one can't tell what the story is (a missing game vs. a <CG> screw-up, etc.).

  Pawn and Two: <zanzibar> The tournament book, <Internationales Kaiser-Jubilaums-Schachturnier Wien 1898>, stated that in the 36th round, Walbrodt did not appear for his 2nd game with Janowski. Janowski had opened the game with the move 1.d4, and he was awarded the full point.
Jul-05-16  zanzibar: <P&2> I'll have to add the 1.d4 to the stub game, as well as time comment.

In this case I'm actually pointing out a short-coming in the tournament intro write-up:

<[Many Schwarz games + ] two more games were decided by forfeit, all of these games have been omitted from this collection.>

Vienna (1898)

Without stubs it's important to be explicit in the intro about exactly which games are forfeits, etc. Though I suppose listing the number of forfeits is at least an indication of the situation.

As I use stubs more and more, the practical benefits of them (when properly handled) becomes more and more convincing to me.
