  Benzol: Hi Martin. Thanks for the note on my forum. It wasn't me who stayed with Jens Enevoldsen but New Zealander Ewen McGowen Green He must have stayed with him after the 1969 World Junior Championship so I'd say it was around 1969 - 1970. Good luck with the Chess Journal.


Premium Chessgames Member
  Calli: Hello Martin! Some time ago in 2009, you asked about the Deutsche Schachzeitung 1862. Most editions from 1847 to 1870 were added to Google books last year. I put together a collection for easy access: Game Collection: Deutsche Schachzeitung

Have fun!

I wish you a happy new year!

After a short first research - I'm afraid you're right - it will be difficult to find games by Chr. Holm ... but I will keep looking!


Mollerstrom reports in the 'Deutsche Schachzeitung 1850, Vol 5' on page 363 that during the 'German-Danish War of 1848-50', Blankensteiner, Holm & the Moller brothers have leaving the Copenhagen Chess Association and it looks that Holm not comeback...
