Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-20-09  Jim Bartle: Tenner often appeared in Robert Byrne's NY Times columns, usually with some irreverent comment. For example, when a Marshall Club member went on and on about how great Teichmann was despite having only one eye, Tenner asked him, "Which squares couldn't he see?"

  wordfunph: Oscar Tenner often told the story that during the World War 1, they made a chess set out of soft bread and later when food became scarce, they ate the pieces!

Apr-05-18  nummerzwei: Recently I've finished reading Antje Goehler 's weird novel <Balcke oder der hypermoderne Prometheus>, which has Tenner as a character.

He's playing one of his match games with Bardeleben (this one: O Tenner vs Von Bardeleben, 1910), while poets Ernst Balcke ( and Jakob van Hoddis( kibitz.
