  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Paul Seuffert.
Jul-09-17  zanzibar: I think his name should be

<Paul Clemens Seuffert>


<Festschrift zur feier des zwanzigjährigen bestehens - 1906>

Jul-09-17  zanzibar: (The difference between <Paul Clemens Seuffert> and <Fred Dewhirst Yates> is that the incorrect version of Yates name had been memorialized, bibliographically speaking, and Klemens really only exists in online-sources.

So, doing a search for written material by Yates will require Dewhurst, or the omission of the middle name.

Like in a library or

This isn't the case for Seuffert - at least I don't think so. Thus, changing his name is easier to do safely.

Still, the widespread, incorrect, version should be clearly noted - for the record.)

  WorstPlayerEver: Here's a biography (in German):

There's also a pdf with some games. It seems he had a nervous breakdown and shot himself through the head.

According to Eduard Dyckhoff who composed the text post mortem: Seuffert was suicidal long before (stories of weak nerves, periods of time spent in private sanatoria) and while a personal life heavily in shambles his money left from a small heritage ran out. Like in a picture book Seuffert's final try to fix the situation kind of failed due to onerous conditions resulting in a quick personal decision to actively depart from life. He wrote final letters, one addressed to Heinrich Ranneforth in which he announced he was about to shoot himself in the woods near 'Lohr am Main', the 'world famous' Spessart. This particularly came in handy locating his corpse right on the next day. Würzburg - given as place of death, is an old Bavarian city approximately 10km southwest. The text prolongs with a detailed examination of the players complex character and his chess performance/results. No doubt Dyckkhoff is a good observer and in the last paragraph he does a considerable job highlighting Seufferts stand out talent having been an excellent chess teacher and lecturer. The essay closes with the mandatory chess games selection.
