    ...I put a link to in the last Blog.

    YouTube

    I was looking at it again and decided to post a thank you.
    (the hits have gone up by quite a bit on that vid.)

    Teichmann looks positively scary.
    If you have mate in two against him and he offers a draw, you just say 'Yes!"

    I noticed this was left by a previous poster.

    " thought this was wonderful.
    My grandfather was Benjamin Marshall, brother of Frank Marshall.

    My Aunt Carrie, Frank's wife, was my Mom's favorite Aunt. Aunt Carrie gave my
    Mom all of Uncle Frank's chess books and his favorite chess set.

    Thank you for putting this great video together. I will be sharing it with my brothers and sister."

    Wow!

    The ripping open of the bag of gold coins....I wonder where that idea came from.

    Very good. Excellent.

    Found two brillinat sites:

    The Frank James Marshall Electronic Archive and Museum

    http://www.rci.rutgers.edu/~goeller/marshall/

    and...

    Chess Archaelogy:

    http://www.chessarch.com/index.phpelogy

    1,000 of chess cuttings from chess columns plus loads and loads of other stuff.
    I'll be raiding that site for the Blog.

    Did anybody here know of the Mammoth Chess Tournament that
    took place in New York from Dec 10th 1868 and finished on Jan 9th 1869.

    From what I can gather a group of players had to play each other twice.
    Some of the games were not played. I guess when Mackenzie had built up
    such a lead that he could not be caught the tournament ended.

    1 Mackenzie wins =82 losses =8
    2 Delmar wins = 69 losses = 13
    3 Mason wins = 69 losses = 17
