Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-02-12  Karpova: At the Dr. Körner Tournament in Vienna in 1928, Lichtenstein did remarkably well despite facing strong opposition:

1. Reti 10.5
2-5. Becker 8.5
2-5. Lichtenstein 8.5
2-5. Spielmann 8.5
2-5. Dr. Tartakover 8.5
6. Kmoch 8.0
7. Grünfeld 7.5
8. Müller 6.5
9-11. Von Döry 5.0
9-11. Igel 5.0
9-11. Takacs 5.0
12. Glass 3.5
13-14. Beutum 3.0
13-14. S. R. Wolf 3.0

Lichtenstein scored +6 =5 -2 and earned the Master title.

He barely participated in tournaments due to his profession (though so far I don't know what it was). His chess playing style is described as bizarre and said that he didn't know chess theory. He was more of a natural talent.

From page 82 of the 1928 and page 162 of the 1934 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

Sep-02-12  Karpova: Lichtenstein was less fortunate at the 14th Trebitsch Tournament in Vienna in 1931:

1. Becker 11.0
2. Hönlinger 10.5
3. Grünfeld 10.0
4. König 9.5
5. L. Steiner 8.0
6. Glass 7.0
7-8. Lokvenc 6.5
7-8. Hans Müller 6.5
9. Lichtenstein 5.0
10-12. Beutum 4.0
10-12. Boros 4.0
10-12. S. R. Wolf 4.0
13. Kunert 3.0
14. Dr. Metanomski 2.0

From page 178 of the 1931 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung' Lichtenstein scored +3 =4 -6, losing places 1-5 and Lokvenc.

Sep-02-12  Karpova: The 18th Trebitsch Tournament* in Vienna in 1935 was again a bit of a disappointment for Bernhard:

1-2. Eliskases 8.0
1-2. L. Steiner 8.0
3-5. Becker 6.5
3-5. Müller 6.5
3-5. Spielmann 6.5
6-7. Glass 6.0
6.7. Grünfeld 6.0
8. Gereben 5.5
9. Lichtenstein 4.0
10. Fuss 3.5
11. S. R. Wolf 3.0
12. Kolnhofer 2.5

Lichtenstein scored +2 =4 -5.

From page 365 of the 1935 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

*Not to be confuse with the 17th Trebitsch Tournament which ended on January 4, 1935 and where Lichtenstein did not participate.

Oct-03-13  Karpova: He won a blitz tournament in the Cafe Arlon, Vienna <am 8 d.>* which lasted almost 6 hours.

1. Lichtenstein 14.5
2-3. Lokvenc 14.0
2-3. Takacs 14.0
4. König 13.5
5. Schwimmer 13.0
6-7. Eisenberg 11.0
6-7. Feingold 11.0
8-12. Beutum 10.5
8-12. Dr. Gruber 10.5
8-12. Herz 10.5
8-12. Hönlinger 10.5
8-12. Scharf 10.5
13. S. R. Wolf 10.0
followed by 7 other players (so 20 overall)

Ed. Fischer rendered outstanding services to the tournament, there was a huge number of spectators and the prizes were donated by <Medizinalrat> Dr. Maximilian Neumann.

* this might be time specification, e. g. the 8th of a month

From p. 13 of the January 1926 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

Mar-06-16  zanzibar: Sad to report that he may have died in Auschwitz 1943...

The wife is about his age, and the children were born in Vienna. Lichtenstein was active near the time of the Anschluss as well.
