|Mar-26-04|| ||nikolaas: That's funny! His name means "pawn" in German. |
|Mar-26-04|| ||Cecil Brown: Bauer means both pawn and farmer in German I think. The French word Pion means either pawn or peasant.|
Well, either way the farmers/peasants are important! Try playing a game without them!
|Oct-26-05|| ||Eastfrisian: Game 42 can't be with him, because he didn't live at that time.|
|Feb-26-06|| ||yoozum: J Bauer? Does anybody watch the t.v. show "24"?|
|Jun-14-07|| ||sneaky pete: Another source gives the place of birth as Kotepek, Bohemia (no such thing as Czech Republic or CzechoSOLvakia back then).|
|Jun-15-07|| ||vonKrolock: For me,a better way of translating 'farmer' would be "Pächter" or "Landpächter" - even so, in some places "Bauer" is used for 'farmer'- In others, it's simply 'peasant', but still found for 'rustic' (in the sense of 'rural' - but possibly also 'boorish' or 'awkward' - even if "Grobian" would be a better term for this)|

Er wuchs in seiner <Geburtstadt Prag> auf und siedelte 1886 nach Wien um, um dort als Buchhalter zu arbeiten.
<Er gewann zum Jahreswechsel 1886/87 die Meisterschaft der Wiener Schachgesellschaft und wurde daraufhin Berufsspieler.
<1887 gewann er das Hauptturnier beim Kongress des Deutschen Schachbundes in Frankfurt am Main und erhielt den Meistertitel.
<1890 wurde er bei einem Meisterturnier des österreichischen Schachbundes in Graz Zweiter, vor u. a. Emanuel Lasker und Georg Marco. >
<Sein verfrühter Tod infolge Tuberkulose im Jahr 1891 beendete seine vielversprechende Schachkarriere. >>>

|Aug-03-11|| ||GrahamClayton: Death notice in the "Queenslander", dated Saturday 13 June 1891, page 34:|
"The death is announced of the Vienna master, Herr J.H. Bauer, at Gorz, on 5th April, aged 30, whither he had gone to escape the rigours of a severe winter. At Breslau, 1889, he tied with Bardeleben, Gunsberg, and Paulsen for 4tb, sth, 6th, and 7th prizes. He was second in the Kolisch tournament, Vienna, 1890, won by Max Weiss. Herr Bauer published two years ago the "Schach-Lexikon," a compilation of the openings of over 2000 of the best games, systematically arranged so that the whole opening moves of a game may be telegraphed in a few figures. His loss will be all the more severely felt in Vienna now that B. Englisch and Max Weiss have withdrawn from active play."
|Dec-21-11|| ||markwell: There was no Czech Republic in 1861 or 1891. Herr Bauer was an ethnic German who lived and died a subject of the Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Enough with the absurdity of claiming that anyone born in Prague was Czech. This site needs to set accuracy standards in its biographies.|
|Dec-22-11|| ||Calli: <markwell> It is the place of birth not ethnicity.|
|Dec-22-11|| ||keypusher: <Calli: <markwell> It is the place of birth not ethnicity.> Fair enough, but given that CzechoSOLvakia existed neither in 1861 nor now, that at least should be changed.|
|Dec-23-11|| ||Calli: Only current countries are in the pick list for CG biographers. There is no option to enter a formerly existing country.|
|Dec-23-11|| ||Calli: I modified the first sentence to describe the situation in 1861.|

Thank you sir.
