Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-25-06  nikolajewitsch: This guy is quite interesting; considering that he is no GM he has a very good record against numerous contemporary top players whom he faced mostly in the German Bundesliga. Today he is a tournament organizer and a marathon runner. It should be possible to find more of his games.

  HeMateMe: Wock's the fuss about?
Aug-29-10  whiteshark: Nunn can tell!
Sep-08-19  Granny O Doul: John Wockenfuss had a twelve-year MLB career, mostly with the Detroit Tigers. Generally a platoon players, it seems, but in 1980 he played in 126 games, hitting .274 with 16 home runs. His name somehow always stuck with me.
