"... concluding (based on the score sheet) that "the remainder of the score is incorrect; the game was agreed drawn at the 61st move." Sherwood's score <*> was flawed because of the fact that 26.Rab2 was supposed to be 26.Rg2. The full score was provided in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle of September 30, 1926 and it shows that Torre missed a clear win in the end."

<*> Sherwood and Brandreth published Chicago 1926 and Lake Hopatcong 1926 Chess Tournaments (Yorklyn, DE: Caissa Editions, 2009).
