  GrahamClayton: Obscure German player who lived in Hamburg, and who competed in the 4-player tournament held in the same city in 1928, finishing last behind Wagner, Heinicke and Schonemann.
Mar-14-18  Telemus: He had also some better events in 1928.

In Februar 1928 the DSZ reported the final standings of the city championship on Hamburg: Rodatz and Schönmann shared 1st and 2nd with 10/13, and the play-off was won by Schönmann +1, =2.

In October 1928 the same journal reported that Rodatz won the club championship of the Hamburg CC. Moreover he shared first with Brinckmann (ahead of Heinicke and Roese) in one of the two master tournaments of the Lower-Elbe Chess Association (Niederelbischer Schachbund).

"In October 1928 the same journal reported that Rodatz won the club championship of the Hamburg CC."

Rodatz was long-term member of the Hamburg CC. I came across a reference to him playing for the club against the Vienna Chess Club in 1962, when he was in his mid-60's.

Jan-15-19  Telemus: A remarkable first-round win:

I don't get White's idea playing 18.♕h4 (which sacs/loses a pawn):

There is no way that White suceeds by ♖xf6 after the pawn has been taken.

Later on there was a little excitement again:

23.♖xe6! ♘f4! 24.♖e3 ♗xg2 with serious advantage for Black.
