Date Updated
Full score of the 1931 Whitaker game (cable match) now available, thanks to Andy Ansel.
One 1929 simul game v E Irving, thanks to Roger Watson.
Added the missing game from the 1932 Flohr match in London (game 5), from the Gillam booklet.
County match v Vera Menchik, played 14 Nov 1931, contributed by Brian Denman.
British Championship, Rd 11 (26 Aug 1932) vs Fairhurst, complete game added, contributed by Alan McGowan.
The Aitken simul game is now a complete score, thanks to Geoff Chandler and Dave Archibald who looked it up in Aitken's scorebook, held by Edinburgh Chess Club. Credit also to members of the English Chess Forum who had previously worked hard to interpret an almost entirely illegible score found in an online newspaper and reconstruct the score..
Added game versus Harold George Felce, 1930 (contributed by Gerard Killoran)
Added part-game from a simul against James Macrae Aitken (Oxford), played 23 Nov 1933.
Added Eva-Sultan Khan, British Championship 1929 (Rd 11) - thanks to Gerard Killoran
Added two stubs from the 1935 match vs Khadilkar. More importantly, I've added a complete score of a game won by CHO'D Alexander in a club match vs Sultan Khan played on 16 January 1932, contributed by Alan Smith, for which many thanks. This game was collected from the Times Literary Supplement but it looks like there is an error in the score in the last three moves given there which Alan and I have not so far been able to resolve. It would be good if another source for this game could be found which might help to resolve this.
Added another game between CHO'D Alexander and Sultan Khan, played in a match between Cambridge University and Imperial Chess Club on 15 November 1930. Sultan Khan won with Black. Alan Smith found this in the Times Literary Supplement for 27 November 1930 - many thanks, Alan.
