Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-27-07  wolfmaster: This game was played by Berliner before he switched to Correspondence chess where he excelled. He will always be remembered as one of the greatest correspondence players of all time.
Aug-27-07  RookFile: Byrne did pretty good too.
Aug-27-07  wolfmaster: <RookFile> Yes, I was just remembering so much about Berliner I forgot about Byrne. Byrne was not even an International Master in 1946 but still played great chess.
Aug-27-07  monopole2313: Both players were juniors at the time, and I think they both played in the first U.S. Junior Championship (won by Larry Friedman). Were the Open and the Junior held concurrently that year?
Aug-28-07  Resignation Trap: <monopole2313> The 1946 US Junior Open took place in Chicago July 1-6. The US Open took place July 8-20 in Pittsburgh.

Five (or six) players participated in both: Eugene Levin , Larry Melvyn Evans , Hans Berliner , James Cross and Paul Poschel . The possible sixth player may have been Paul Dietz, and I suspect that he is the D Dietz in our database.
