Sep-07-06  hellstrafer: "Niemand" means "noone" in German. Possibly a German NN? :)
Sep-07-06  dehanne: It also means 'no one' in Dutch. Hardly surprising, since the two languages are like brother and sister.
Sep-07-06  dahlo: This is too crazy it also means 'no one' in Flemish! ;)
Sep-07-06  dahlo: Actually 'G. Niemand' is someone in the NIC database. :)
Sep-07-06  weary willy: I think the player of black is Peter Keffler
Sep-10-06  mack: Lovely stuff - this is surely GOTD material. 'Niemand's Land'.

  Calli: Poor Keffler, losing to a nobody like that. 8->
Sep-11-06  sneaky pete: <Calli> Who won?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Calli: oops! I guess Keffler beat nobody that day. Do you get any rating points for that?
Sep-11-06  EmperorAtahualpa: "Niemand"? No one could possibly have that name. :)

Anyway, I found that his first name is Gerhard and I've found one Gerhard from Germany and one from South Africa. I guess it's more likely it's the German guy and this might very well be him: He's an optician from Berlin.

Sep-11-06  sneaky pete: <EmperorAtahualpa> You're close, but this Gerhard Niemand (age 75) is a retired banker from Austria. I played 4 king's gambits against him in a theme tournament, 2 draws in the preliminaries in 1995 and (with incredible luck) 2 wins in the finals in 2004/2005.

Sep-11-06  hellstrafer: Another funny thing: Keffer means "pothead" in German. This guy is Keffler, but still...
Jun-23-08  MEISTERBRAU: And remember captain NEMO! (=Niemand)

  whiteshark: Nobody should have made a strategic withdrawal: <11.Nf3!>.
Feb-21-09  JonathanJ: <hellstrafer> actually the word is "kiffer"
Feb-25-11  bastiaan0740: Cute game.
