Jun-11-06  Castle In The Sky: The biography is incorrect Mr. Hoenlinger died on March 12, 1990.

  Benzol: <Castle In The Sky> You meant it was incomplete, right?


Jul-07-06  makaveli52: 1928 to 1955 looks way off, just look at the bio .... born 1905
Jul-07-06  dzanone: That puts his first important game that was recorded at the age of 23. Seems reasonable.
Jul-07-06  makaveli52: err my bad disregard my previous post, confused myself

  keypusher: Unfortunately this is his only game that I know.

Spielmann vs B Hoenlinger, 1929

Jul-07-08  brankat: R.I.P. old Warrior.

Jul-07-08  whiteshark: My pleasure, <brankat>!

The way is the goal.

Jul-07-10  BIDMONFA: Baldur Hoenlinger


Jul-07-10  Marmot PFL: < Castle In The Sky> The strain of 213 games at once was too much for him.
Dec-25-15  Abdel Irada: A pity. Baldur had such a promising career before Loki came along.

Jan-03-23  stone free or die: Hoenlinger played a 10 game match in 1929 against Spielmann:

<CG> has a few of the games (but from where, I think they're all unsourced):

I found mention in the literature that Hoenlinger didn't loss in 5 of the games, allowing the match play to be deduced:

<Spielmann--Hoenlinger (1929) +5 =3 -2>
