  Phony Benoni: <"A. Kupchik, of New York, champion of the Manhattan Chess Club, improved his position in the annual championship tournament of the New York State Chess Association at the Chess Club of Troy today by defeating Charles Jaffe, also of New York, in the second round. Kupchik, playing Black defeated a Ruy Lopez with the Morphy Variation. Jaffe enlivened the proceedings by a bold line of play, which, however, led to an even ending. In this Kupchik proved his superiority and he scored after seventy-two moves, bringing his total up to 2½-0½."> -- New York Herald, August 7, 1919, part two, p.8.

And in case that sounds like a strange score to have after two rounds, some games in the tournament were played out of sequence.
