Jan-12-13  waustad: I wondered who the big wooley guy was in pictures I'd seen of Austrian teams and it is Herr Danner:
Feb-21-13  waustad: He is still very active, playing in leagues in Switzerland, Austria and Hungary that I know of. He also plays in senior events.
Feb-22-13  Nosnibor: I played him in the Hastings Challengers on new years day 1974.The game was a Modern Benoni which he won with black in 73 moves.As far has I know this may have been his sole visit to England.
Feb-22-13  waustad: Looking through his listings on chess365 I didn't find any visits to Britain, but many things don't get into print anywhere. If you have the score and want to get in here, try the upload utility. He did play in Las Vegas in 1995. chess365 is probably better than this one for finding games by obscure players, though I much prefer the interface here.
Apr-05-13  waustad: I've run across a Lambert Danner who is also Austrian and is two years younger. Perhaps he's the little brother.
May-26-13  waustad: Did he run out of time here? It looks like a perpetual. Then again there do seem to be a lot of strange results at 365chess. I appreciate how many games they have, but sometimes am left confused.
Jul-10-13  waustad: Today in the Styrian Open he held on for 111 moves to draw a rook and pawn ending down a pawn. I suspect he's taught these openings since before his opponent was born.
Oct-26-13  waustad: Happy 67th Birthday to an Austrian player who has played from junior tournaments through senior and as far afield as Las Vegas, though most of his play has been in Central Europe. I have great respect for someone who after a time of comparative inactivity during his 20s came back to achieve an IM title. He is still an active player and not just in senior events.
Aug-24-14  waustad: He's playing back to back tournaments. He finished at the Schwartzacher Open yesterday afternoon and is playing in the Austrian Championship this morning.
Oct-26-14  waustad: Happy 68th.
Mar-05-15  waustad: He had an excellent result in the European Seniors Team Championships. As first board for the first Austrian team he scored 8/9.
Jul-11-15  waustad: He'll be playing top board for Austria 1 in the European Senior Team Chess Championship 2015, which start tomorrow in Vienna. Games will be shown live on With 42 teams, it will be interesting to see if they have enough DGT boards to show all of the games. The first round is at 15:00 CET, with subsequent rounds being played at 10:00 CET.
Jul-15-15  waustad: His win today helped Austria I continue in its bid to be European Senior Chess Team champs. The round started badly, as one of the Austrians forgot his cell phone so Germany took a lead after 2 moves when it rang. Wins on the top two boards and a draw on board 4 gave them a 2.5-1.5 win. The team is now at 7/8 match points, tied for 2-4 in match points behind the leading Israeli team which has 8/8 after 4 rounds.
