Jul-27-13  Ulhumbrus: 8...Bc6 wins back the pawn after 9...Nbd7 but with 10 Nd4! White gains the bishop pair and goes on to win

  HeMateMe: Who was it that said the Germans shouldn't allow their own players to participate? A fine game by Meier. Muscle on the seventh rank.

Is Meier a German variant of the jewish name "Meyer"? I'm just curious, thinking that going back decades a family might have wanted to hide their ethnicity due to pogroms or Hitler, or other such problems.

Jul-28-13  Everett: From http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meyer_(surname) <Meyer Definition: From the Middle High German word "meiger", meaning "higher or superior", often used for stewards of landholders or great farmers or leaseholders—today a Meier is a dairy farmer. Meier and Meyer are used more often in Northern Germany, while Maier and Mayer are found more frequently in Southern Germany.

Among German Jews, "Meyer" converged with the etymologically unconnected name "Meir", which is derived from Hebrew.>

Meyer (most frequent spelling, I think) or its variants Meier/Mayer/Maier is one of the most common family names in German. So I doubt there is a big hide your ancestry/religion story behind it - I don't even know which religion Meier is excercising.Basically every medieval village had a Meyer. See Everett's post for the meaning.
