|Johannes Metger won the German Master title at Leipzig in 1876. He also won 1st prize in local events like Schwerin 1883, Rostock 1884 and Wismer 1886. He later acted as tournament controller at the 1925 Baden - Baden Tournament. There is a variation in the Four Knights (C47) Game named after him.|

|Sep-25-05|| ||Eastfrisian: Johannes Metger was born on Dezember 15, 1850 in Groothusen, near Emden (in East-Friesland, not far from here)
and he passed over on January 25, 1926 in Kiel.
He was the son of a priest and graduated from the University of Göttingen in phylology and mathematics. He taught then in Leipzig and became member of the famous chessclub "Augustea". Since 1882 he lived and taught in Kiel and became founder and leader (1901 - 1916) of the chessclub "Kieler Schachgesellschaft", which still exists.
He was a brilliant chess teacher and among his scholars were such good players as Heinrich Wagner, Alfred Brinckmann, Dr. Oskar Antze, Hugo Süchting and more.
Metger also wrote the book "Die Schachschule".

|Dec-15-06|| ||Phony Benoni: Tournament controller at Baden-Baden 1925, eh? Wonder if he was involved in the supposed triple repetition dispute of Reti vs Alekhine, 1925|
|Dec-15-07|| ||whiteshark: Maybe it was the dispute of Marshall vs K Treybal, 1925 in the second last round. Marshall offered a draw in an inferior position and Treybal accepted it. Grünfeld(!) claimed/remonstrated against this draw and the arbitration panel had to decide...|

|Dec-15-08|| ||brankat: <whiteshark> A beautiful photo. I didn't realize Baden-baden had such a strong field. Just like the first one of 1870, in relative terms.|
A capable player and, later, a fine author and teacher of chess.
R.I.P. Her Metger.
|Dec-15-10|| ||YoungEd: Perhaps the only player to have an "unpin" named after him!|
|Jul-29-12|| ||Karpova: According to page 29 of the 1926 '(Neue) Wiener Schachzeitung', Metger died of cancer.|
