Jun-24-13  thomastonk: <stonehenge> Do you know whether he was blind by birth?

I've found a newspaper photo (bad quality, sorry):

  Stonehenge: Here it says he went blind at age seven:

  DoctorD: That's a pretty large document.
Jun-24-13  thomastonk: <Stonehenge> Thanks!

I think he deserves to have a win here, and so I've submitted his game against Schelfhout from Rotterdam 1919.

  Stonehenge: His name was actually Kutscheid, which is a rather unfortunate name in The Netherlands:

Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <Stonehenge> Why, what does it mean?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: Er, kut is a female body part. And scheid sounds the same as schijt, which is a four letter word in English, beginning and ending with the same letters.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Shams: Oh dear.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: So it would be like being named Kuntschit? Oh dear, indeed.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: btw, how do you like this guy's name? Or this?
