Biographical Notes by Rod Edwards (from 13 Jan. 2019):

<Di Felice has 'Petzold, H.' at Munich 1900 but 'Petzold, Kurt' at Barmen 1905; Gaige (Chess Tournament Crosstables) has 'Petzold' at Munich 1900 and 'H. Petzold' at Barmen 1905. Without futher information to go on, I will assume that these two players were the same.>


See the Prison-Story about Ladislaus von Dory, for more information - I would be grateful!

The Barmen 1905 tournament book also mentioned Leipzig as his place of residence.

<whiteshark> "The Filbinger Case"

Yes, I have darkly remembered this story, so my question...

Which first name give the Barmen tournament book?

  whiteshark: PS: The Chessbase source <Hamburgischer Correspondent, 22.3.1906> actually didn't mention Petzold's 1st name - see:
