  Benzol: Has anyone with "107 Great Chess Battles : 1939 - 1945" ever noticed that Alyekhin's opponent is listed as L. Zollner?

If I remember correctly there are one or two games by L Zollner in Wenman's 100 Chess Gems.

Jan-12-07  Calli: Hans is not listed in Personalia but apparently is correct. L Zollner is Louis Zollner according to Gaige. Dates given as b.1854 in Denmark and d.1945 in Whitney Bay, England. So I don't think it is him. Edward Winter probably did not attempt such corrections in "Great Chess Battles" and just quoted the original source.

  Benzol: <Calli> As a Dane wouldn't Louis Zollner have been eligible to have played in Krakow in 1942? Denmark was taken by the Nazi's in 1940. Keres for instance as well as Alyekhin played in Nazi sponsored tournaments. I'm not sure how Zollner would have ended up in England by 1945 but it could him who played in 1942 couldn't it?
Jan-12-07  Calli: You do realize L Zollner was 88 in 1942. I think he long since moved to GB. Here's a picture of Louis and Capablanca.

Amazing what you find on the internet. Picture from Capa's 1919 UK tour? Not sure.

  Benzol: You're probably right <Calli> but my Grandfather used to walk from Maida Vale to Kilburn three times a week at the age of 90 to shop for groceries. That was a journey of a few miles. Still, war torn Europe was no place to be touring around in at the age of 88.
