From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Berthold Englisch (9 July 1851, Osoblaha – 19 October 1897, Vienna) was a leading Austrian chess master.

Englisch was born in Czech Silesia (then Austria-Hungary) into a Jewish family. He earned his living as a stock-market agent.

He won the tournaments at Leipzig 1879 (the 1st DSB Congress) and at Wiesbaden 1880 (ex-equo with Blackburne and A. Schwarz, ahead of Schallopp, Mason, Bird, Winawer, etc.).[1]

He lost two matches against Vincenz Hruby in 1882 and to Emanuel Lasker in 1890, both scoring 1.5 : 3.5, and drew a match with Harry Nelson Pillsbury 2.5 : 2.5 (+0 –0 =5) in 1896, all in Vienna.[2]
