Apr-05-06  EmperorAtahualpa: First name Adolf, and the family name sounds like "Stalin". Could this guy be any more unfortunate? :)
Apr-05-06  EmperorAtahualpa: By the way, after viewing his games, I must say that this guy must be the most mediocre national champion ever!

  whiteshark: <EA> I always thought about <Der Stechlin> which is the last novel of Theodor Fontane, who was the most important 19th-century German-language realist writer.
Sep-22-08  sneaky pete: Hello, is this the Adolf Stahlhelm page?
Apr-05-09  WhiteRook48: No, it is the Adolf Staehelin page.
Happy birthday to this player!

Apr-05-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Joseph Hitler.
Apr-05-16  Eastfrisian: <TheFocus> What do you mean with this comment ?
Apr-05-16  TheFocus: <Eastfrisian> That should be easy to figure out. I bet you can if you try.
Apr-05-16  Eastfrisian: <The Focus> I could, and therefore was the question. To bring Adolf Staehelin in the near of Adolf Hitler should be not a gould style, isn't it ?
Apr-05-16  TheFocus: I'll spell it out for you.

Joseph + Stalin

Adolf + Hitler.


Adolf Staehelin (Stalin)

Joseph Hitler.
