  whiteshark: Leopold Loewy (Löwy), Jr (born 30 August 1871) was an Austrian chess master.

Bio: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopol...

  brankat: You can say that again :-)
Sep-04-12  oao2102: In 1907, Spielmann uncorked the Bird Defense against Loewy Sr and lost (L Loewy Sr vs Spielmann, 1907). Six years later, facing Loewy Jr in the Spanish Game, he tried again (L Loewy Jr vs Spielmann, 1913)...and won! Vengeance!
Aug-23-14  Karpova: 1st Vienna Chess Club double round robin tournament, from January to the end of March 1906:

1. L Löwy 8.0
2. Vidmar 7.5
3. Tartakower 6.5
4. Martinolich 4.5
5. Schenkein 2.0
6. S A Wolf 1.5

Löwy scored +8 -2 =0.

It was probably Löwy Jr., since he is called a <Jungmeister> (young master). Mr Wolf had to withdraw after the first game due to professional duties - it's not clear which Wolf it was, but it was possibly Siegfried Reginald Wolf, or maybe even Heinrich Wolf (S A Wolf is Siegfried August Wolf).

  zanzibar: Much of the above bio info is probably wrong, or in desperate need of in-depth research and verification.

The first mention of the 2nd Löwy seems to be the 1904 KGD Vienna tournament - which has the more established player as <Löwy I> and the other as <Löwy II or Müller (pseudonym)>.

As for the 2nd player:

<Müller hat gar manche Partie vortrefflich angelegt und schließlich verloren. Es ist sein erstes Turnier, er ist noch zu wenig im Feuer gestanden.>

or

<Mueller Has a great deal of excellence And finally lost. It's his first tournament, he's still Too little in the fire.>

Given the explicit "first tournament" status, I would venture to say that the earlier 1902 game:

L Loewy Jr vs K Kaplanek, 1902

is actually the debut of <Löwy I> (whose current <CG> debut is from 1903).

  zanzibar: Here is an important "working hypothesis" from <Focus> which I am using to track the identities of the two:

Biographer Bistro (kibitz #16651)

The idea is to find contemporaneous content to verify (or not) the link info.

(Given the sources, it's far more likely to be verified, of course)

This one is OK, and might be interesting as concerns the pathway to the result (i.e. promotion).

There's a 3rd problem, but let's stop here.

  zanzibar: Number (II) shows up in the first volume of the (Neue) WSZ in 1923:

<Humor im Schach.

Meister Leo Löwy II., bekannt unter dem Namen „Larsen und Müller“, Komponist und Autor des berühmten Liedes „Die Rose“, stellt uns eine Auslese gediegener Schachscherze eigener und fremder Kom Komposition ­ position Komposition zur Verfügung, an denen mancher Schachfreund sein Vergnügen haben wird, ln seinem Begleitschreiben heisst es: „Schach sei für ein Spiel zu ernst, behaupten die neunmal Klugen. Ich Bescheide mich mit dem neunten Teil der Weisheit und erblicke im Schach eine Fundstätte echten Humors. Nebenbei bemerkt, scheint mir in dieser Eigenart des Schachs ein wesentliches Kriterium der Unterscheidung vor allen anderen Spielen zu liegen; sie stempelt es zur Kunst. Humor im Schach kann organisch nur der Position und ihrer Forderung entspringen. Beiwerk soll nur Folie, nie Selbstzweck sein. Verstösst ein Exempel gegen dieses Prinzip, so bleibt es meist ohne Schach und ohne Humor. Das Wesen des Witzes liegt im überraschenden Widerspruch. Humor im Schach erblüht, wenn die Position, ihre Forderung oder deren Erfüllung im Gegen Gegensatz ­ satz Gegensatz stehen: a) zum Zwecke des Spieles (zum Beispiel Selbstmatt usw.), b) zur Erfahrung (Neuartigkeit der Position usw.), c) zum Wesen des Spieles (Verschiebungsaufgaben usw.), d) zur Wahrscheinlichkeit (0-1- Züger usw.), e) zu den Spielregeln (zum Beispiel Vermehrung des Materials usw.), f) zum normalen Spielverstande (Beispiele hauptsächlich aus der Praxis). In allen diesen Fällen aber muss die Pointe eine rein schachliche sein, tritt dieses Moment zurück, so fehlt die Würze, der Humor entartet zur Plattitüde. Einige Beispiele ad a—f werden den Leser und Löser zu ewigem Dank verpflichten.“>

  zanzibar: Here is the google translation:

<Master Leo Löwy II, known as "Larsen and Mueller", composer and author of the famous song "The Rose", provides us with a selection of solid chess pieces of his own and foreign composer position composition at which some chess friends have their pleasure "In his accompanying letter, it says:" Chess is too serious for a game, the nine times clever. I agree with the ninth part of the wisdom and see in chess a place of real humor. Incidentally, in this peculiarity of the chess, it seems to me an essential criterion of the distinction before all other games; She stamps it to art. Humor in chess can arise organically only from the position and its demand. Accessory is only film, never self-purpose. If there is an instance against this principle, it usually remains without chess and without humor. The essence of the joke lies in the surprising contradiction. Humor in chess flourishes when the position, its demand, or its fulfillment stand in contrast to the contrary: a) for the purpose of the game (for example, self-matt, etc.), b) for the experience (novelty of the position, etc.) c) (Eg, multiplication of the material, etc.), f) to normal gameplay (examples mainly from practice) , In all these cases, however, the point must be purely chess, if this moment recedes, the spice is absent, the humor degenerate into platitudes. Some examples ad-f will oblige the reader and the solver to eternal thanks. ">

  zanzibar: Please be aware the <whiteshark>'s first comment is likely mis-identifying the two players as being related, and which was Sr. vs. Jr. (as far as the WSZ (I) and (II) goes).

AFAIK there is no biographical data available for <Löwy (II)>, who <CG> identifies as Jr.
