Dear Sirs,

I'd like to inform you that the game Glucksberg - Najdorf (called Polish Immortal) was played in Warsaw in 1930, and not in 1935.

The event was not the Championship of Poland. It was an off-hand game, or the game played in a minor tournament in Warsaw.

Already in 1930, the score of the game was published by Leon Tuhan-Baranowski in "Dzien Polski" newspaper.

The true story was reported by Dr. Tadeusz Wolsza in "Szachista" monthly (editor: IM A. Filipowicz) in the 1990s.

I suggest you to improve ASAP this painful error on your excellent page.
