thomastonk: My sincere condolences to his family. I remember him as a particularly friendly and enthusiastic person.
   Jan-17-16 Baden-Baden (1870) (replies)
thomastonk: <Tabanus: "Introduction written by User: tt"> I've made <my> tournament some time ago, and that's the end of the story. The same applies to biographies. But I think you knew that. <z>: you wrote to <Tab> that some of the best information is in the ...
   Jan-16-16 Napoleon Bonaparte vs General Bertrand, 1820 (replies)
thomastonk: <zanzibar: perhaps the earliest know thus far?> No. Winter quoted from BCM 1900, pages 53-56 and corrected a date for a source as follows: "This will be found reprinted in Waifs and Strays, the second edition of which does not give the date and place of first appearance of ...

thomastonk: <Tabanus> <z>: Haas has Blackburne v Neumann 1/2 on <July 20>, and Neumann v Blackburne 1-0 on <July 21>, i.e. the other way around as in the games here. Just now I've no time to check why.
   Jan-06-16 Steinitz vs Lasker, 1894 (replies)

thomastonk: *Strictly forbidden diabolic guesswork*. If I look at the final position of this game, then I cannot believe that Capablanca continued until move 35, i.e. the number of moves from his defeat against <Luiz Vianna> of January 14. But this number is possibly not reliable! All

   Jan-02-16 Max Lange (replies)
thomastonk: <zanzibar> Reading obituaries is often informative! Some of your questions are answered by the obituary in DSZ 1900, pages 26-29. There one can find a description of Lange's activities in and outside of chess. Neither the obituary nor the tournament book of Nuremberg (1883)
   Jan-01-16 Walter Irving Kennard
thomastonk: <capanegra> A very lovely key indeed! And that was a broad hint.
   Jan-01-16 Carl Hartlaub (replies)
thomastonk: Two positions from one of his games (Hartlaub v Carls, Hamburg 1914): TACTICS: [DIAGRAM] Hartlaub played 21.♕h4, which is a good move. But there was a better one. TOO MUCH TACTICS: [DIAGRAM] Here White could simply take on c1 or he could have played 25.♕f6 or 25.f4 ...
