Biographical data
Name: Mayer, G.  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
Di Felice gives 'Mayer, Lajos' as the name of the player at Hamburg 1902 and Nuremberg 1906. Gaige (Chess Tournament Crosstables) gives just 'Mayer' for the first of these, but 'G. Mayer' for the second. Gaige also has 'G. Mayer' at Hamburg 1910, where Di Felice has 'Maier, Georg', but the latter was born in 1903, so this is clearly an error. There was also a Mayer at Berlin 1897-1898 and at Munich 1900. So it is not clear whether there was one player named Mayer who played in all these events, and whether this was 'G. Mayer' or 'Lajos Mayer', or whether there were two, 'Lajos Mayer' playing in some of them, and 'G. Mayer' at others, or even more than two. Since Gaige is generally more reliable than Di Felice, I will assume that 'G. Mayer' is correct for Nuremberg 1906 and Hamburg 1910. In the absence of more definitive information, I will make the simplest assumption, namely that this same 'G. Mayer' played at the earlier events in Berlin, Munich and Hamburg.
