aka FM <Hartmutix Metz> Die Meinungen über sein Talent sind geteilt: Er selbst findet sich genial, alle Anderen finden ihn unbeschreiblich. Doch wenn er nichts sagt und schreibt, ist er ein fröhlicher Geselle, der von allen geschätzt wird ...

  diagonal: In June 2012, Hartmut Metz beat Viktor Korchnoi in a rapid game in Potsdam (Schauspiel des Geistes im Kaiserbahnhof):

One of his finest games is a 20-move win in classical chess against Michael Prusikin: H Metz vs M Prusikin, 2000

And a recent game, at the <Grenke Open in Karlsruhe 2016> with 940 participants (successor of the Neckar-Open series in Deizisau, Grenke sponsored this year an Open Festival instead of the invitation tournament at Baden-Baden), Metz drew elite player Richard Rapport quite easily: (game), (picture / diagram)

Metz learned the game late at the age of 16 when he was injured after a soccer match. He is a renowned chess author and journalist in german language, also co-organizing the longtime <Mainz Chess Classic> Open series (1994 to 2010, first editions at Frankfurt) with Hans Walter Schmitt, including the unofficial chess960 World Chess Championships:

Apart, he’s played more than 1'800 competitive games, mostly in open tournament and team events in Germany (Rochade Kuppenheim), Austria, and Switzerland.
