Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-17-10  Lovuschka: Ralf Runau lived in 1972 in Waltrop, played Hastings 1971/72, beating Tony Miles (archive of Bernhard Suntrup, via Wolfgang Pieper).

Later known as Ralf Marian, according to the SV Waltrop 1922 e.V. website. - entry 06.1982

Latest game I found by him is Schachbundesliga 1986/87 against Klaus Klundt (Marian for VfL Sindelfingen; Klundt for FC Bayern München) on 12.x.1986. No further trace of him is found in the sources I can access.

  whiteshark: <Lovuschka> Thanks, Siegfried! Some more games can be found here: --> R Marian
Aug-17-11  Lovuschka: Thanks to de-Wikipedia, we know now that Runau played at least also until Schachbundesliga 1992/1993 (where he had no games) for the VfL Sindelfingen. Afterwards the VfL Sindelfingen never played in the Schachbundesliga again. Maybe something can be found out via the club leader H. Braun?
