Feb-05-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Arthur John Mackenzie.
Oct-31-20  Nosnibor: Apparently Mackenzie had played H E Atkins more times than any other player in match/tournament games. The record stands as 7 wins to Atkins 4 draws and 1 win to Mackenzie. Six of these games were County match encounters between 1903 and 1909 when Mackenzie represented Warwickshire on top board.
Oct-31-20  Nosnibor: Games 18 and 19 in the database appear to be duplicated.
