|Dec-21-04|| ||vonKrolock: From Hessen, Germany, * 1857 , + 1932:
Attended regularly the regional and national Chess Congresses in his country - he was a tenacious adversary and a true gentleman, known also for his habilities as singer and as blindfold simultanist. Sparse data about him in a very thorough web site whith historic accounts here www.ballo.de/westdeutscher_schachbu... and here www.ballo.de/dsb_2__teil.htm in German, if a tranlation is needed, here a free on-line machine

|Feb-18-05|| ||cu8sfan: The first version of Fritz (Computer). The results indicate that the technology wasn't yet good enough to compete with the best but they're still strong. (-: |
|Jun-14-05|| ||Knight13: I don't believe this guy lived for 108 years (or more). The guy who played NN in 1800 must be another A Fritz guy.|
|Jul-12-05|| ||Knight13: Alexander Fritz was a weak strong player. He played lots of very strong players and lost to them. But he won some, too.|
|Aug-28-05|| ||A.Alekhine: Is Deep Fritz named after this guy?|
|Aug-28-05|| ||WTHarvey: Here's a little collection of crucial positions from Alexander's games: http://www.wtharvey.com/frit.html|
|Aug-28-05|| ||Rocafella: <Alexander Fritz was a weak strong player> ?:o|?|
|Aug-28-05|| ||wheelchiar bandit: 1800 to 1908 years covered? was he over 108 years old??|
|Aug-28-05|| ||Landman: Different people. The full name of the 1800 "A Fritz" was "A Nother Fritz".|
|Sep-27-05|| ||Eastfrisian: This Alexander Fritz was born on January 15, 1857 in Kirchlotheim and died on April 22, 1932.|
He is not well known in Germany.
|Feb-16-06|| ||dakgootje: <The full name of the 1800 "A Fritz" was "A Nother Fritz".> Nah that was another one ;-)|
Ow and his mom was called 'a mother Fritz'...and his child was called junior -.-
|Apr-01-08|| ||Knight13: This guy was a punching bag for the elite players.|
|Jan-15-10|| ||Knight13: Yo, this guy sucked, dude. Probably was a 1900 rated player if there was a rating.
Happy Birthday Mr. Dead-Guy.
|Jan-15-10|| ||Tabanus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexan...
http://db.chessmetrics.com/CM2/Play... has him ranked no. 21 in 1879. No patzer then.
|Jan-15-10|| ||Knight13: <Tabanus> What the h... Dude, go over his games. He really, really sucks compared to the top players I swear.|
|Jan-15-10|| ||Tabanus: Hi <Knight13> it's a question how good these guys were. Perhaps like Don Lippincott's 10.60 vs Usain Bolt's 9.58, |
10% weaker? :)
|Feb-20-13|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: The biography contains an error--the Fritz Variation is 5...Nd4, not 5...Ng4. As a player, he was probably only a weak IM at best, but a weak IM beats over 95% of all chessplayers, and Fritz did score one (lucky) win vs. Steinitz.|
