  MissScarlett: According to Wikipedia, he took part in the <3rd General Government Tournament> in Poland in 1942, alongside Alekhine, Bogo and Junge, but Skinner and Verhoeven's Alekhine book gives the player as <H Weil>. Can anyone confirm his participation? Alekhine won a nice game against him, and I'd like to submit it.

  Stonehenge: Dutch newspapers of the time have Dr. Weil.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: According to http://www.rogerpaige.webspace.virg..., it was <Herbert Weil>. So Wikipedia is likely incorrect. I'll submit the Alekhine game under that name.

  Stonehenge: Tournament in Warsaw, which began October 11, 1942:

Dr. Weil, Vienna

  MissScarlett: Hmmm, maybe they are the same, after all.

  Stonehenge: So this is really Wolfgang?

H Weil vs Alekhine, 1942
