Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-03-08  jovack: The score for the 1911 Wire match Moscow-Riga is incorrect. Riga clearly won that game. -- please correct this, check the game yourselves.
May-02-09  Dredge Rivers: The capital of Latvia, I presume!

  Phony Benoni: In 1916, the American Chess Bulletin published a small collection of corespondence games by the Riga Chess Club, with extensive notes by the club members:

The first five games given here are included.

  HeMateMe: Riga changed hands quite a few times in the 20th century.


From an independent, German speaking state in the late 19th century to forced Russification, then under Nazi Germany's rule, then back to Russian control in 1945, until 1989.
