Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-04-04  DanielBryant: Does anybody know anything about the winner of today's Game of the Day?
Oct-04-04  Calchexas: Well, just looking on this page, he drew both HAL 9000 and the guy who Nimzowitsch drew with the suicidal rook...

He seems to have performed somewhat well at the DSB Kongress, but I can't say I've heard of him before.

  Phony Benoni: Came across this game in "Chess Review", March 1933, p.17:

White: "Antze, Dr. Oscar"
Black: "Carls, Carl Johan Margot"

The event is given only as "Played in a match recently in Hamburg, Germany." I found a 1931 match between these two players, but the location is given as Bremen, where both lived.

Does anyone know of more information?

Dec-24-13  Karpova: Bremen, Winter Tournament 1915, Group I:

1. Antze 5.5
2. Carls 4.5

Dr. Antze was the vice president of the Bremen Chess Club (J M Carls was the president), which was back then in the Hotel Schaper-Siedenburg, Bahnhofstraße.
