Assistance Requested

As indicated in recent postings, I am working on adding info to a collection of Prize Winning Games from tournaments from 1876-1929. The collection was originally published in Shakhmatny Bjulleten three issues in 1968. The articles were collected by Nikolay Minev, who added some additional games.

I am seeking the assistance of readers who may be able to provide additional detail, specifically the type of prize that the games received (e.g. Best Game, Best Combination, Best Endgame, 1st Brilliancy Prize, etc – whatever may have been given at the particular tournament). So if any readers have access to the original tournament bulletins (or perhaps other sources) where this information may be found, please email me at admin@thechesslibrary.com with whatever details you can find.

The list of tournaments currently represented in the games collection is:
