|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?"|

|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 (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernst...) and Jakob van Hoddis( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jakob...) kibitz.
