|Jan-18-12|| ||brankat: Dr.Staudte must have been not only an endgame composer, but also a pretty strong practical player, as his score in Dubrovnik Chess Olympiad would suggest.|
|Apr-10-12|| ||thomastonk: Staudte played the German championship once (at least) in 1950: 1st Unzicker 12.5, 2nd and 3rd Bogoljubov and Staudte with 12 points. Not too bad!|
Other databases like that of Chessbase have some games played by him during 1949-52, but he became a strong player already before WW II. He was a member of the "Aachener Schachverein 1856" since he was a schoolboy, and he was the best player already in 1928. Some of his early games survived in a chess column of a local newspaper.
|Apr-18-12|| ||thomastonk: <whiteshark: Any relations to <Rainer Staudte>?> No. Rainer Staudte has done a lot at the wiki entry you cited before, but somewhere in wiki he wrote that the share only the name and the interest in problem chess, but they are unrelated to each other.|

Here is an excellent example of Staudte's tactical awareness, playing Black against Jaya in 1956:

White has just played 1.xf6, assuming that 1...c1+ can be met by 2.f1. Staudte uncorked the brilliant 1...xe6!!, when either capture loses to 2...c1+ and mate. White resigned, as he must lose a piece to defend against the back-rank mate.
