Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-16-20  Alan McGowan: German records show Hans Karl Otto Zollner was born 31 December 1911, Meiersberg.

He died 19 January 1942, Jamno, Groß-Sabow, Kreis Naugard.

  Stonehenge: So it wasn't him in that 1942 tournament.

  MissScarlett: I didn't notice that, and I'm usually good at noticing others' mistakes. Probably 1943 is meant.
Jul-17-20  Alan McGowan: I have just realised that Zollner played in the 1943 German Championship in Vienna (August 15-29). I clearly found the wrong Zollner in the German records - back to the drawing board.

  perfidious: It is bizarre indeed to see a German championship which was held in Vienna, but such were the times.
Jul-17-20  Alan McGowan: The Deutsche Zeitung im Ostland of 6 September 1943, discussing the recent German championship event, remarked on a curiosity: three of the players, Zollner, Loose and Gilg, share the same birthday-20 January.

<Von den 16 Hauptkämpfenden feiern drei Meister am gleichen Tage, nämlich am 20. Januar, Geburtstag und zwar Zollner, Loose und Gilg.>

But I have not found additional details about Zollner. The search continues.

  perfidious: This calls to mind that old parlour game of picking two people from a group at random, and the likelihood that two will share a birthday--but three? That strays well outside the bounds of probability, though in my life I have known three people who shared the birthday of 9th June--all of whom were born in 1966!

  Tabanus: has there is a bio of the new Munich champion Zollner in "Süddeutsche Sonntagspost" nr. 34, 21 August 1932. Citing the book "Schach ins Volk" by Gerstenberg, who again cites Münchener Post, 3-4/9 1932, p. 10.

  Jean Defuse: ...

Training tournament of the 'Großdeutschen Schachbund' (29.12.1935 - 04.01.1936)

1st Weissgerber (6.5), 2nd Zollner (6,0) ...

G Weissgerber vs H Zollner, 1935 played in Dec 1935 (see - DSB 1936, p. 18, Ranneforth's Schachkalender 1937, p. 124)

The duplicate G Weissgerber vs H Zollner, 1936 can be deleted!
