jnpope: <MissScarlett:> Except for the fact that the game header in the NY Post article reads: <White. Steinitz (blind- folded)> And that article is reprinted in the <American Chess Magazine>, v1, 1897, pp174-175, which also gives the game header indicating Steinitz

jnpope: They sold me a service and now want to take my money AND take an advertisers money? Screwing over the userbase will not be profitable in the long run. If CG needs the cash then they can do the damn math, figure out the financial point where you can still sell the services offered and

jnpope: WTH is up with showing me third party ads? I thought the whole point of purchasing a Premium Membership was so I could turn that junk off? Do not display 3rd party ads is 100% checked, but yet I'm seeing advertisements that link to "" all over the site. ...

jnpope: I found an S. R. Dill leaving New York on June 13, 1878 aboard the Steamship <State of Indiana> headed for Glasgow, per the New York Daily Tribune, 1878.06.13, p3. And the <State of Indiana> arrived in Glasgow on June 24, 1878, according to the Glasgow Herald, 1878.06.25,

jnpope: I only ever see former players at various casinos. I've bumped into a few folks from the Grand Rapids mini-swiss days, Smeckert and Triplett, out at Firekeepers. I'm rather surprised Noren didn't recognize you. You were such a central figure in the MCA. Now me? I'm shocked whenever ...
