Lilienthal!
Compiled by FSR
--*--

Andre Lilienthal, who died in 2010 at age 99, met or played every world champion except Steinitz, beating Lasker, Capablanca, Euwe, Botvinnik (twice), and Smyslov (four times). According to his biography, he also beat Alekhine "in a serious game," but I haven't seen that game.
