JOHANN HERMANN BAUER
(born Jun-30-1861, died Apr-05-1891, 29 years old) Austria

[what is this?]
Johann Hermann Bauer was born in Prague, Bohemia which was part of the Austrian Empire in 1861. As a youth he settled in Vienna and won the master title at the Frankfurt Hauptturnier of 1887. His best tournament achievement was at Graz, 1890 (+3, =3) where he finished in 2nd place behind Gyula Makovetz and ahead of Emanuel Lasker and Georg Marco. In 1891 whilst playing in a double-round tournament at Vienna his health broke down when he was sharing the lead with Adolf Albin. He moved to Gorz but died a few weeks later from tuberculosis. He's chiefly remembered for his famous loss to Lasker at Amsterdam 1889.

  nikolaas: That's funny! His name means "pawn" in German.

  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.

  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)

  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 His loss will be all the more severely felt in Vienna now that B. Englisch and Max Weiss have withdrawn from active play."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.

  Calli: <markwell> It is the place of birth not ethnicity.

  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.

  Marcelo Bruno: Is there any known portrait of this master, for example, in the Amsterdam Chess Congress 1889 or any other one else?
