  whiteshark: I wonder if he was related to Moriz Henneberger

Both were jointly Swiss champions in 1906.

May-19-08  xKinGKooLx: <syracrophy> I think there are two solutions to this puzzle: 1. Be7 g3 2. Kg7 gxf2/h2 3. Bf6#, or 1. Be7 f6 2. g6 d5 3. Nd3#. Am I right?
May-19-08  xKinGKooLx: No, hang on, after 2. Kg7, f3 prevents 3. Bf6# due to the escape hatch at f4. So, the continuation would now be 3. h/fxg3, followed by 4. Bf6# or Ne3# depending on which pawn Black moves.
May-19-14  Nosnibor: Wickipedia do not mention better results for Henneberger in the Swiss Championships when he was already in his late 60`s.In 1949 he finished in a tie for second place with J Ehrat on 5.5/8 half a point behind the winner S.Tordion.The 1951 event was held in Geneva and he finished fourth on 6.5/11, H Grob being the winner on 8.5 points.R.I.P.Mr. Henneberger
