|May-27-09|| ||Sem: A meagre stub for a man who beat the great Lasker. Herbert Trenchard took some prizes in British tournaments, and participated in the famous Kaiser-Jubilaeumsturnier, Vienna 1898, won by Tarrsch and Pillsbury. Trenchard finished 19th.|

|Jul-18-09|| ||Sem: <whiteshark> thanks. How I would have loved to bring up the rear, having beaten Lasker!|
|Jul-18-09|| ||keypusher: <Sem> Lasker didn't play at Vienna 1898. I assume this was a casual game?|

|Sep-02-10|| ||Nosnibor: Whiteshark. According to the official records Trenchard did not finish last.In 20th place was Schwarz on 0 points having lost his first 19 games ( not quite as bad as Colonel Moreau!).He defaulted all of his remaining 19 games on the second double round of the event.|
|Sep-02-10|| ||whiteshark: <Nosnibor> Thanks for pointing out. Indeed, Adolf Schwarz withdrew after playing 8 games. I think there is a rule or a habit that leaving a tournament in the first half leads to a cancellation of all results and a delisting in the crosstable.
So here 19th place seems to be the last place.|
|Sep-02-10|| ||Nosnibor: Whiteshark. I agree that those rules apply now but not in 1898.My score table is taken from Maroczy`s best games (German edition)|
|Sep-02-10|| ||whiteshark: <Nosnibor>
http://www.endgame.nl/wien.htm says "<The aging Schwarz left the tournament during round eight. His games were cancelled at the end of the first cycle.>"
<cancelled> is the key word. I'd guess Maroczy's biographer was 'over-accurately' here.

|Jul-10-17|| ||zanzibar: Winter has a nice photo of him, C.N. 9643, but it's unsourced.|
Does anybody know where the photo of him is from, or know of any other photos?
