  Chessical: In the first European Correspondence Chess Olympiad (1937-1939), the Austrian team of Ernst Grünfeld, Erich Eliskases, Hans Müller, Albert Becker, <Karl Poschauko> and Hans Haberditz finished in second place, only one point behind Hungary.

  GrahamClayton: Here is a nice use of a cross-pin by Poschauko against Hermann Halosar at Graz in 1941:

1...♗f5+ 2.♗d3 ♕e2!

3.♗f5 loses the Queen to 3...♕a6, so White resigned.

Dec-08-13  Karpova: Poschauko won the 1923 Championship of <Oberösterreich> (Upper Austria) in Linz, clearly ahead of Kunert and Buchinger. The year before, he had won the Austrian Chess Federation's Summer tournament ahead of Takacs. He is said to be of master strength, yet has no sparring partner in Austria.

From page 191 of the August 1923 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

Dec-04-15  ljfyffe: Poschauko contributed 3.5 points to the 19.5
achieved by the 6-man Austrian team in the A Final of the 1937-9 IFSB European Olympiad.

The cross-pin position is probably a composition after the actual game:

1. e4 e5 2. Pc3 Pf6 3. Pf3 Pc6 4. d4 exd4 5. Pxd4 Lb4 6. Pxc6 bxc6 7. e5 De7 8. De2 Pd5 9. Ld2 O-O 10. Pxd5 cxd5 11. c3 Lc5 12. O-O-O La3 13. Kb1 Tb8 14. Lc1 d6 15. Txd5 Le6 16. exd6 cxd6 17.

Position after 21... Qe2

Apr-08-18  WorstPlayerEver: PS corr: it's based on the actual game. Position after 19. Qxa6, where Black played 19... Bxb2
