  Honza Cervenka:, I have found four Schorn's games played against Lasa and uploaded them in your PGN Upload Utility
Oct-16-15  thomastonk: I've changed the date of birth: instead of 16 Oct 1803, it is 16 Oct 1800 according to Mario Ziegler in "Karl" 4/2014; Ziegler's source was Schorn's baptismal certificate.
Jul-06-17  Nosnibor: Apart from his one win in the db he seems to be shorn of success.
