|Dec-07-04|| ||sneaky pete: <Knight13> Born October 31, 1836, in Galszecs (Hungary), died October 25, 1910, in Vienna. Merchant by profession. Played in at least 10 strong tournaments in Austria and Germany between 1873 and 1899. His best result was 1st place (shared with Blackburne and Englisch) in Wiesbaden, 1880, ahead of Schallopp, Mason, Bird, Winawer and 9 other masters, so you can count him as a chess master. |
