Feb-06-18  goser: Oops! A blunder leading to mate in one move. The position was probably lost for white anyway though...

  perfidious: A pawn down, with weaknesses and facing the threat of 30....Qxd6 31.cxd6 Rxc3 and a back rank problem, White's last move was seppuku.

  Phony Benoni: Afther White played <16.e5>, Kupchik received word that his father and suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. The game was immediately adjourned, and Kupchik left the tournament for several days, His games with Michelsen (Round 3, April 22) and Lasker (Round 4, April 23) were postponed.

Kupchik returned on April 24th, resuming winning this game and also defeating Michelsen (E Michelsen vs Kupchik, 1915). In find that game incredible, considereing the circumstances.

The game with Lasker was not made up until May 1 (Kupchik vs Ed. Lasker, 1915), and was more indicative of Kupchik's form for the rest of the tournament.

By the way, it would be my guess that Hodges' blunder in this game was more likely due to time pressure than gallantry.)
