  Karpova: <Salomon Langleben (1862-1939) had an interesting career. Born in Warsaw, he lived in the United States for a while, winning the championship of Buffalo in 1894. Returning home at the end of the century he won the Warsaw City Championship in 1900 ahead of Flamberg. He was third in the 1910 Warsaw City Championship behind Rotlewi and Rubinstein.>

  alexmagnus: Well, there was a movie... don't remember the name, where they found a place with a timehole, go back from 1990s into 1300s, and only then all but one return back (one decides to stay in the 1300s). In 1990s they find his grave: "It was a wonderful life, XXX, died in 1392" and somebody shouts: "Born in 1969".
Dec-18-07  sneaky pete: Cortlever (short liver) died in 1995, at age 79, whereas Salomon Longlife only reached 77. My typo however steered the discussion in a more interesting direction.
Jun-29-10  Oceanlake: If it's the same person, he played a very nice game in 1895 against Sobernheim. Don't know how to submit it for inclusion in database.

But don't worry about this one; I've just submitted it. (French Defense, Black sacrifices queen to mate the White king on a8, right?).

Jun-30-10  Oceanlake: Yes. And thanks.

  Karpova: Salomon Langleben came in 3rd at a small 4-player tournament in Warsaw 1908, and scored 2.0/6. The other participants were Salwe, Alapin and Flamberg.*

He won 1st prize after play-off against Flamberg, scoring 2.5/4 in a local tournament in Warsaw 1899.

In America, he played around 4 half-serious games against Schottländer and won them all.

He played two times with great successes in the New York Tombola-Handicap tournament in the Manhattan Chess Club, which takes place every year on February 22nd (Washington's birthday). Strong players like Delmar, Hodges, Hanham, J W Baird, Roething etc. participated there. Langleben had to give odds to Marshall (P and move) and Napier (N).

In 1903, Langleben drew a small match against Salwe (+1 -1 =1) in Lodz.

* http://www.edochess.ca/tournaments/... Langleben probably beat Flamberg.
