  HeMateMe: I'd suggest a match between <niels Lie> and <Odd Lie> but, hey, its better to let sleeping dogs lie. And, thats no lie....
Jul-23-13  Karpova: In C.N.s 8128, 8137, 8143 and 8146, Winter sought information on the position appearing in the episode "Checkmate" from the ITc series 'The Prisoner', first broadcasted in 1967.

White can win but agreed to a draw after 55.Qd8+

Now, in C.N. 8150, Peter Anderberg (Harmstorf, Germany) gives the solution to the puzzle:

White: Nils Lie (from SkÝrping)
Black: Arne Desler (from KÝbenhavn)

The Danish OTB Championship 1930 in Svendborg ended with a clear victory for Erik Andersen Sr (5.5/7, +4 =3 -0) ahead of Lie and Desler with 4.5/7 (both +3 =3 -1).

So as tie-break, two correspondence games were played. The position above is from the first one (game score submitted to the database). The second game was won by Lie after 50 moves who had Black in a Ruy Lopez.
