  Benzol: Is this Arthur Rosentreter of the 'Rosentreter Gambit' fame?
Aug-15-08  myschkin: . . .

< Gambit des Hauptmanns Rosentreter >

"This tricky gambit (1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Nf3 g5 4.d4!? g4 5.Bxf4 gxf3 6.Qxf3) is an interesting way for White to avoid the Kieseritsky."


for the enthusiasts

something in German:

... uff, right now I can't find any direct links for your suggestion but I am sure it is the same! We should contact the Vienna Chess Club - in their archive is everything :)

Can you give me a source for his forename 'Arthur'?
