  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?

  MissScarlett: Probably. Could there be two master-level Dr. Weils of Vienna?

  Stonehenge: I'm sure it's W, I have submitted a correction slip.
Jul-11-20  Alan McGowan: There were two brothers, both Drs.
The July 1939 Deutsche Schachzeitung (pp194-5), reporting on a Vienna tournament, listed Dr Herbert Weil as a participant. In the report it said he should not be confused with his better-known brother, and hoped that he would soon be heard of more often:-

Dr. H. Weil, nicht zu verwechseln mit dem bekannteren Bruder Dr Wolfgang Weil (Oeynhausen 1938), ist zweifellos einer der besten Spieler Wiens; man wird von ihm noch öfter hören.

The November 1942 Deutsche Schachblätter (p163) listed the players in the 3rd tournament of the General Government in Poland. It included 'Dr Weil (Herbert)'.

Jul-15-20  Alan McGowan: A death notice was published in the Neues Wiener Tagblatt, 17 March 1945, p2. It stated that Dr Wolfgang Weil died 11 February 1945 in Italy.
