  Penguincw: Happy 75th birthday. If only you were alive.
Nov-25-11  Antiochus: Like many Germanic players Emil Schallopp , Dr. Carl Hartlaub , Willi Schlage , Kurt Paul Otto Joseph Richter and Andreas Dueckstein he did incredible feats for his playing strength.

Look at here (Tim Krabbe's chess curiosities) or look 2 or 3 Moehring's games at here:
Game Collection: Krabbe's Forgotten Pieces and here Game Collection: 101 greatest moves ever played(by krabbe)

Nov-25-11  Antiochus: Has anybody ever heard anything about R McBride ? Just look what he did R McBride vs Marshall, 1915 and Alekhine vs R McBride, 1932
