GEORG KIENINGER
(born Jun-05-1902, died Jan-25-1975, 72 years old) Germany

[what is this?]
Georg Kieninger was born in Munich. He was awarded the IM title in 1950 and was German champion in 1932, 1937, 1940 and 1947 (Western zone).

An avid cigar smoker, Kieninger was nicknamed "Eisernen Schorsch" (roughly translated as "Iron Georgie") because of his fighting style. The Kieninger Trap in the Budapest Gambit (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 Ng4 4.Bf4 Nc6 5.Nf3 Bb4+ 6.Nbd2 Qe7 7.a3 Ngxe5! 8.axb4?? Nd3#) is named after him.(1)

He passed away in Düsseldorf in 1975.

  Dionysius1: It looks like a non-sequitur that he was known as Iron Georgie for his attacking style - the nickname would be equally appropriate to someone who was hard to break through in defence. I wonder if it's not instead because of his smoking - a convoluted analogy with a steam train or "iron horse"?
