  keypusher: It's funny, between this guy and Moritz Porges I think of Moritz as a punching-bag name.

Which is quite wrong of me. Billecard and Porges were strong enough to get into super-tournaments where they were overmatched against the likes of Lasker, Rubinstein, and Charousek. Then, as it happened, those super-tournament games were the only ones (or almost the only ones) that made it into this database; the hundreds of other games that Billecard or Porges won aren't here.

Is Moritz just a nickname or derivation of Maurice, by the way?
