  MissScarlett: The <Detroit Free-Press> of April 23rd 1924, p.26, indicates this game was played on April 22nd.

<Of the players who scored victories, one is Edward Kupko, 20 years old, a student of the Detroit College of Medicine. Other winners were: Leon Stolzenberg, state champion; John Winters, former champion of Chicago; G. Barnes, University of Michigan champion; and H. Hockensen, former champion of Minnesota.

More than 600 witnessed the contests. A second series will be played in the rooms of the Detroit Chess and Checker club this evening.>

This second display (not listed in <Whyld (1998)>) is duly reported in the following day's edition (p.5). Lasker scored +23 =4.

Dec-10-18  TheFocus: If I ever did a bio on Lasker, <MissScarlett> would be credited with dozens of corrections.

Then we'll know who you really are, Edward!

Dec-10-18  TheFocus: She'll be wanting complimentary copies, I suppose.

  MissScarlett: I'll arrange its posthumous publication.
Dec-11-18  TheFocus: You're hoping for my death so you become the premier historian on the site instead of me.

Not a chance, <Missy>!! You're going first.

  MissScarlett: Hoping for the best, planning for the worst.

Incidentally, do you have the game Lasker-Chugerman?

Dec-11-18  TheFocus: What year?
Dec-11-18  TheFocus: <MissScarlett> <Incidentally, do you have the game Lasker-Chugerman?>

Yes. It was found by Eduardo Bauza Mercere and presented in Quarterly for Chess History #3, pg. 120.
