   Nov-03-20 Lilienthal vs Tartakower, 1933 (replies)
MelvinDoucet: The game alluded to by <hemy> is actually Tartakower vs Lilienthal, 1933 (according to 365chess that is). I'm not sure in what context this game was played. At first I thought it could be one of the missing games from either of the two matches Tartakower and Lilienthal ...

   Oct-27-20 J W Baird vs D G Baird, 1893
MelvinDoucet: David Baird seems to have resigned in an equal position. Perhaps he assumed he would be losing after 49...♖b6 50.♖g6 ♖xc6 51.♖xg7+ but it turns out that any move except for ♔d6, which allows a rook trade, leads to a draw. White could try using ...

MelvinDoucet: It's surprising to see that Lasker played John F Barry in a 19-board simul as the latter was a master-level player for the time. Was he that obsessed with the KG or did he just want to have a little fun?

   Oct-26-20 La Bourdonnais vs McDonnell, 1834
MelvinDoucet: Le Palamède, vol.1, 1836, has a different score for this game which I copied below. I don't know if the French magazine is more reliable a source than the one used by Chessgames but I suppose this could be useful regardless. <1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e3 e5 4.♗xc4 exd4 ...
   Oct-26-20 London vs Paris, 1834
MelvinDoucet: This game was featured in the first volume of Le Palamède in 1836 and was annotated by none other than Monsieur de La Bourdonnais. The following is my translation of his annotations. Note thay the London CC had the black pieces and played first so I had to reverse colors in ...
