Ostend (1906) – Working Notes – version comparisons

This is a comparison of Phony’s version of Ostend (1906) vs. my working copy – short of the new games my version is missing from Marco’s book.

First – this is a working notes document, and really intended for just Phony.  Next, there are statements like <Phony bad> or <Z bad>, which aren’t value judgements of either myself or Phony, but are rather indications of which version of the game I prefer.

The list which follows have games that should be reexamined. I’ve supplied my primary sources, Phony has generally used Gillam as his source. There are differences in the games, which may result from the sources, or the transcriptions. I’ve edited out many obvious discrepancies due to my own bad data entry errors. Not having Gillam I can’t point out similar such errors from Phony, but it’s natural to assume a couple examples are contained in the following.

Some of the discrepancies involve a value judgement  (e.g. maybe indicated by <Phony bad?>, which I remind the reader is a judgement on the game, not the worker who supplied it), where the difference is due to Macro, or other sources Gillam used, vs. my sources (e.g. Dutch newspaper accounts, DSZ, ACB, etc.). Usually the “?” indicator means I checked my source, and found the moves correct. Rarely, there may be a clear mistake in Phony’s score, well- at least accounting to my interpretation – and thus a clear <PB wrong> is used.

OK, with all that song and dance here is a list of games that I believe should be rechecked:
