|Aug-28-08|| ||GrahamClayton: Arved Heinrichsen died in Vilnius on the 23rd of August 1900 from tubercolosis at the young age of 23.|
The 1863 game is obviously not the same player.

|Jan-17-10|| ||Marcelo Brasileiro: A correction: the first game wasn't played by Arved. Being born in 1876, how could he play in 1863?|
A better precision for his birth and death dates:
* 23rd November, 1876
† 23rd August, 1900
This information is taken from Vlastimil Fiala's book "11th German Chess Association Congress: Cologne 1898".

After attending the junior school he entered the Gymnasium secondary school in the town of Riga. After a short stay in St Petersburg he left in 1896 for Berlin to study there at the faculty of Medicine.
"In the summer semester of 1898 he continued in his studies at the university in Kiel, but in late summer he began to suffer from health problems. In September 1898 his Berlin doctor diagnosed the beginning of tuberculosis. The parents sent him, at the doctor's recommendation, to Helouan in Egypt but there he contracted malaria, which undermined his physical strength still more. He spent the rest of his life in summer in his native town, in winter in the sunny south, but without any hope of overcoming his tuberculosis, a fatal disease in those days. He died in the later summer of 1900 in the circle of his family."> quoted from Fiala's 'Cologne 1898' - second hand quote, showed online already by Silman, who reviewed this book on <"Amos Burn's greatest victory (11.5 out of 15), a full point ahead of Charousek, Chigorin, and Steinitz. Players that trailed them were Schlechter and Showalter (9 points), Berger (8), Janowsky (7.5), with Popiel, Schi<<l>>ffers, Gottschall, Albin, Heinrichsen, Fritz (computers weren't very good back then) <<note:lol>>, and Schallopp filling out the field.>|
|Aug-09-10|| ||whiteshark: His very short chess career took place in Germany in 1896–1898. He tied for 4-5th at <Eisenach 1896>( the 10th DSB Congress, Robert Henry Barnes won), took 6th at <Berlin 1897> (Meisterturnier des Schachverein Centrum, Curt von Bardeleben won), took 3rd, behind Ignatz von Popiel and Dirk Beijkmans, at <Berlin 1897> (Der 70.Jahrestag der Berliner Schachgesellschaft, Hauptturnier A), shared 1st at <Elmshorn 1898> (quadrangular), and tied for 13-14th at <Cologne 1898> (the 11th DSB Congress, Amos Burn won).|
His name is attached to the Heinrichsen Opening (also known as Baltic, Dunst, Sleipner etc) <1. Nc3>.

I asked the person that posted it, but until the present time no answer came to me. Can be someone luckier than me?
