  vonKrolock: He and Igel are the same. From Austria, played in many important events in the 1920s and 30s, including Vienna's Trebitsch Tournaments etc and the Folkestone Ol 1933 - Scarce informations about him on-line, but I'm recaling about he settling in Brazil, and publishing at least one book, "As Regras Enxadrísticas do Super Matador" (São Paulo 1972) - in Portuguese, sic 'The Chessical Rules of the Super Killer' <!?>, author Frederico Carlos Igel

  whiteshark: <In diesem Buch sind nur die Wettkämpfe aufgenommen worden, die einen reellen Kampf um die Weltmeisterschaft darstellten. Alle Kämpfe, bei denen man den Sieger schon im vornhinein feststellen konnte, wurden fortgelassen; darunter auch die beiden Wettkämpfe Aljechin - Bogoljubow, da sie in der Zeit stattfanden, als Bogoljubow am Tiefpunkt seines Könnens angelangt war......">

Aus dem Vorwort von "Um die Weltmeisterschaft im Schachspiel" von <Friedrich Karl Igel> (in dieser Reihenfolge)

Starker Tobak / strong stuff
