Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-22-08  Karpova: He won the New York State Chess Association's Bath Beach tournament 1909:

1. Rosenfeld 4.0/5
2. Marshall 3.5
3. Jaffe 3.0
4. Moormann 2.5
5. Daly 1.5
6. Roething 0.5

Rosenfeld won all his games except for the one against Marshall (he lost it). Marshall drew Roething and lost against Jaffe. A good result for Rosenfeld!

  Phony Benoni: Died suddenly in late 1913 while still a very young man, according to the Pittsburgh Gazette Times of December 17, 1913. I have not been able to find any more details as yet.

He rose and fell without trace.

  Tabanus: There are at least two Herbert Rosenfeld of about same age in New York. City College of New York (School Yearbook) has a "H. Rosenfeld" as a member of their chess club since 1902. Probably =

Birth: 12 Mar 1883
Death: 8 Nov 1913 - Manhattan, New York, USA
Parents: Hector H. Rosenfeld, Sandilla Falk, if the one d. 1913 played chess. He was a "salesman shirtwaits" in 1910. Else:

  Tabanus: Philadelphia Inquirer 23 November 1913 says Herbert Rosenfeld was "one of the strongest players in the Manhattan Chess Club", and that he was a nephew of Sydney Rosenfeld, "the well-known playwright, who is also a member of the Manhattan Chess Club".

  MissScarlett: <TBDE> reported Rosenfeld's passing on the 13th November, so we have our man.
May-08-16  luftforlife: The Manhattan Chess Club held a 32-player, five-round rapid transit tournament on December 3, 1910. Herbert Rosenfeld won the tournament, defeating Mr. Bodenheimer in the first round, Mr. Northrup (likely George E. Northrup) in the second round, and Mr. Helms (likely Herrmann Helms) in the third round, drawing with Mr. O.W. Field (possibly Otis Field) in the fourth round, and defeating Jacob Rosenthal in the fifth round.
