|Mar-10-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: Heinrich Wolf (1875-1943) had an unusual international chess career. His 17 tournaments were spread over two separate periods: 1900-08 and 1922-23. |
|Sep-23-04|| ||Giancarlo: You can always count on Honza for the information no one knows about. Very informative guy. |
|Apr-19-06|| ||The17thPawn: Hey <Honza> - Have you seen how thoroughly Wolf owned Chigorin. Blanked him 6-0. Not even Lasker managed that against Chigorin.|
|Oct-20-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Heinrich Wolf|
|Oct-20-07|| ||brankat: H.Wolf was a talented player, but never really a professional, hence the unusual sequence of his tournaments.|
He had Wins and/or Draws with such outstanding masters as: Showalter, A.Burn, J.Mason, I.Gunsberg, M.Chigorin, F.Marshall, J.Mieses, Tiechmann, H.N.Pillsbury, K.Schlehter etc.
|Oct-20-07|| ||Gypsy: At one of his columns, Reti alludes to H. Wolf as being a sort of a Viennese chess 'hustler' -- making a fair (second?) income from playing for small stakes in the local chess club(s).|
|Oct-20-07|| ||Manic: <The17thPawn> brings up a very interesting point. 6-0 against chigorin, a world championship challenger. And furthermore, thats 6 out of 6, with no draws. Amazing.|
|Oct-20-07|| ||King mega: Happy BDY!|
|Nov-23-07|| ||Karpova: Kmoch/Reinfeld in Chess Review 1950:
<True, Heinrich Wolf was a player of better than average strength. His score after the twentieth round was a respectable 10-9. It was not too implausible to hope he might beat Rubinstein. Yet this hope was silly in view of Wolf's style and temperament: excelling in steadiness, Wolf, despite his ferocious name, almost loathed imagination and courage.>
They were talking about the last round in Carlsbad 1907.

Josef Emil Krejcik
described him as <...Typische Kaffeehausratte!>
|Dec-13-07|| ||whiteshark: Im Wien jener Tage gab es drei Schachspieler mit Namen <Wolf>. |
Der eine, <Siegfried August> mit Vornamen, war seiner Qualifikation nach der Schwächste des Trios, fiel aber stets durch sein anziehendes Äußeres auf.
Der zweite, <Siegfried Reginald> war von Beruf Geschäftsreisender.
Der Dritte im Bunde, <Heinrich>, besaß Meisterstärke und schlug sich oft und mit Erfolg in der Turnierarena.
Um Verwechslungen vorzubeugen, gaben ihnen die Vereinskameraden im Neuen Wiener Schachklub folgende Beinamen:
Der <reizende> Wolf, der <reisende> Wolf und der <reißende> Wolf.
|Oct-20-08|| ||brankat: R.I.P. Master Wolf.|
|Dec-23-08|| ||WhiteRook48: Wolf vs Duras was 168 moves!!! what a prodigy. I'm an expert at typing in the dark, too bad Wolf died at Hitler's hands.|
|Oct-20-09|| ||Birthday Boy: Happy Birthday!!!Heinrich Wolf!!!|
|Oct-20-09|| ||keypusher: <Birthday Boy: Happy Birthday!!!Heinrich Wolf!!!>|
Jesus, you're irritating.
|Dec-12-09|| ||HeMateMe: Eddie Van halen and Valerie Bertineilli named their only child "Wolfgang,", or Wolf, or Wolfie, for short. Van Halen was actually a serious piano student growing up, and he was a pianist before he took up the axe. Mozart is his favorite composer, thus "Wolfgang."|
|May-30-10|| ||Chessical: Wolf won every game he played against Chigorin who seemed unable to build up a promising position against the Viennese master, or even take advantage of his errors:|

|Jan-06-12|| ||gezafan: How did Wolf die? What were the circumstances of his death?|
|Jul-30-12|| ||Karpova: His wife, Paula Kalmar-Wolf, was the strongest female Austrian chessplayer around 1930 and demonstrated that by coming in 2nd at the Women's World Championships in Hamburg 1930 and Prague 1931. She was a student of Reti and her husband Wolf. She suffered most likely from Diabetes ("Zuckerkrankheit") and died on September 29, 1931.|

|Jun-05-15|| ||Howard: Wolf, quite sadly, died in a Nazi concentration camp----just like Treybal did.|
|Jun-10-15|| ||FSR: <Howard> I don't think that Karel Treybal died in a concentration camp. As his bio says, the Nazis executed him in 1940 for illegal possession of a firearm.|
