|Jul-04-05|| ||Hidden Skillz: i guess not too bad result in the match against young alekhine..|
|Nov-04-05|| ||rexeterna: Is this the same guy who created the Levitsky Attack (Opening of The Day Today)?|
|Aug-17-07|| ||vonKrolock: He scored +3=0-7 in his St. Petersburg 1913 match against A A Alekhine. One of the games deeply analised and a Levitsky photo in this article by Voronkov here on-line (in Russian) on Alekhine's youth http://www.chesspro.ru/_events/2007...|
|Dec-22-08|| ||sfm: What a star parade of opponents! Scoring 35% is world-class.|
|Jan-29-09|| ||Phony Benoni: I fear Levitsky is doomed to negative immortality, forever watching gold pieces shower down on the final position of S Levitsky vs Marshall, 1912.|
Besides the Russian Championship victory in 1911 (16.5/21 against a relatively weak field), his best results were probably 3rd places in the championships of 1899 (behind Chigorin and Schiffers) and 1912 ( behind Rubinstein and Bernstein, but ahead of Nimzowitsch and Alekhine, defeating the latter twice).
|Apr-25-09|| ||WhiteRook48: it seems he's only known as a victim of the ...Qg3!!! against Marshall|

Let me answer you 5 1/2 years later:
|Apr-25-12|| ||Llawdogg: Hey, the guy took part in one of the greatest games of chess ever played.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Master Levitsky played against some serious heavyweights - as evinced by the games in this database. The games that comprise the match between Alekhine and himself are very instructive.|
You are remembered today, Master Levitsky!
|Apr-25-12|| ||mike1: There are certainly a lot of his games missing/lost. Guess that his percentage would be much higher than 40 with these included.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <mike1> Yeah, man. I wonder if a database like say Mega Database 2012 has more games of his...probably. It would be good to get them on here for sure!|
|Aug-14-12|| ||Karpova: In 1900, Levitsky beat Kulomsin by the score of 5.5-3.5 in a match in Moscow.|
