Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-06-06  capanegra: Does anybody have any bio about this placer? It looks like he was born in Germany, and flew to Argentina before the beginning of II World War (maybe in the Buenos Aires 1939 Olympiads, like Najdorf?). It is also funny that "Enrique" is the Spanish translation of "Heinrich", so to be called "Enrique Heinrich" is a bit redundant!
Oct-29-06  Alan McGowan: Heinrich Reinhardt (later Enrique), b. 29 March 1903 Stettin, Germany (now Szczecin, Poland). Active in German chess events of the 1930s. Member of the German team at the Buenos Aires Olympiad 1939. Remained in South America after the outbreak of war. Further information, I suspect, would be found on Soth American web sites.

  Fusilli: <Alan McGowan> <Further information, I suspect, would be found on Soth American web sites.> Correct, and I found it. The following cronology of chess in Rosario, Argentina ( informs that Reinhardt died in Buenos Aires on June 14, 1990, at 87. That website says that the German team actually won the 1939 Buenos Aires Olympiad. The other members of the team were Erich Eliskases, Ludwig Engels, Paul Michel and Albert Becker (they all stayed in Argentina following the outbreak of WW2; Engels moved to Brazil a few years later.) Settled in Argentina, IM Reinhardt worked as an accountant for various German companies. He became an Argentine citizen, and competed in the Argentine national championship in several occasions. He played chess to the very end. At the time of his death (heart attack) he was registered in an open tournament (the source does not say that he suffered the heart attack while playing, so I would not assume so; it only says "registered.")
Nov-23-10  Eastfrisian: Is there anywhere a photo of him?
