Rudolf Spielmann vs Paul F. Johner 1-0, Pistyan Tournament 1922
Vienna Opening
This game is widely known.

Norman Whitaker vs Vladimir Sournin / N.S. Perkins / W.H. Mutchler 1-0
Budapest Gambit

Interesting club consultation game between well known American chess player Norman Whitaker on white side. On the black side was another American champion, Vladimir Sournin, which was assisted by N.S.Perkins and chess editor W.H.Mutchler. The game went to 46 moves in Budapest gambit. However my translation on the moves stopped at move 20 R-R8??? which is hard to decipher. The moves so far
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 Ng4 4.Nf3 Bc5 5.e3 Nc6 6.a3 a5 7.b3 Ngxe5 8.Bb2 d6 9.Be2 O-O 10.O-O Bf5 11.Nd4 Bg6 12.f4 Bxb1 13.Rxb1 Ng6 14.Kh1 Qe8 15.Nf5  f6 16.Rc1 Nce7 17.e4 Qd7 18.Bd3 Nxf5 19.exf5 Nh8  ...

move after 19..Nh8

reader with experience in descriptive notation are encourage to help.

Lengthy report on Capablanca in London 1922 tournament.
Report on Samuel Reshevsky activites on the date. Also interestingly report about Reshevsky in music concert at Convention Hall. He also play nine simuls and blindfold game. Not one escape him.
