May-03-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: This guy is pretty long-lived (97+ yrs. old)! Good health to him! Do you know any chessplayers in the database older than Stein?

  alexmagnus: Sorry to disappont you all but Georg Stein is long dead. He died somewhere in the 80s, though apparently none knows when and/or where.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: You are right <alexmagnus>.

At the age of 15 he became city champion of his hometown, <Koblenz>. The page of his club states:

<Stein, Georg †

mehrfacher Stadt-, Vereins- und Rheinlandmeister, DDR Meister 1951 >

* Obviously the DSB fooled me last year. :D
