We have a couple of excellent additions with annotations to our games database
They are P Evans v T Eckersley-Waites and P Lee v N White.
We now have 47 games including Sir John Simon’s game – game 32
Additionally, you can see at the top of the page tabs for the Timur Gareyev blindfold simul at The Reform and for a couple of interesting speed chess games – although one of these was actually from the simul versus Hodgson and Gareyev.
Please keep the games coming. I am hopeful that we will build a great collection saving the games for posterity and future generations!
