  Phony Benoni: One would hope that his life is an unfinished symphony. However, Jeremy Gaige in his <Chess Personalia>, gives "c1940" as a death date, in Prague. Any uncertain death date in Central Europe at that time raises fears about possible Nazi involvement.

At any rate, I think we can assume the 1980 game features a different F. Schubert, who may or may not be related to Orange Schubert.

Apr-27-11  lost again: According to Milciades Lachaga, an Argentinian chess enthusiast who published booklets on historical tournaments, Frantisek Schubert was indeed a victim of the nazis. He adds that he died in 1943 in a concentration camp in Poland (source: 20 Trebitsch Gedenkturniere und Internationales Schachmeisterturnier Wien 1935, Argentina 1968)

The curious spelling of the name Schubert is courtesy of Ladislav Prokes. I'm glad he at least kept his u.
