Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-30-21  Alan McGowan: Paul Bodenstein was born 12 May 1864 in Oschersleben, Germany. He had a military connection, for in his later years he was sometimes referred to as 'Oberst' (Colonel).

He was active in Berlin events in the 1920s and early 1930s, including events at his club, the Schachgesellschaft.

He won the 5th Brandenburg Congress in 1927, scoring full points in his preliminary section and leading the winners' group, ahead of Winkler and Buchholz.

He died in Berlin on 28 August 1934.

Sources: Schachwart 1927; Deutsche Schachblaetter 1934, p299;

Jun-30-21  Chessist: Is this person identical to Hugo Bodenstein? Berger Schach-Jahrbuch fuer 1899/1900, p. 108, says it was Hugo who took part in Cologne 1898.

  MissScarlett: I noticed today there was a correction slip submitted for a game of Hugo Bodenstein, querying whether it had actually been played by <Paul>. I didn't pay much attention, so can't be sure it applied to the Cologne 1898 game, but the slip is no longer there, so it appears the submission has been duly processed, i.e. waved through without due diligence, by another editor.

  MissScarlett: Seems the 1930 game against <Koch> was the one involved. So the 1898 game should be changed to <Hugo>.

H Bodenstein vs G Exner, 1898

<Alan McGowan: I submitted this game, which was given in the Deutsche Schachblaetter 1934 alongside the death notice for Paul Bodenstein. It stated it was played at Cologne 1898. I have seen references to H. Bodenstein being at Cologne 1898, but page 130 of the 1898 Wiener Schachzeitung, a reliable source, shows P. Bodenstein (Berlin) as a participant.>
