  Ron: Just discovered this player. In this database, Paul Lipke has a 59.5 winning percentage, which includes wins against Blackburn, Mason, Schlechter, Tarrasch, J Mieses and Janowski.
Nov-27-04  percyblakeney: Lipke's best tournament must be Leipzig 1894, where he finished second, only half a point behind Tarrasch (after winning against him). Clearly distanced by Lipke were players like Teichmann, Blackburne, Janowski and Schlechter.
Jun-30-07  Eastfrisian: He was born in Erfurt and died in Osterburg.

Lipke retired early from active chess and worked as a lawyer in Halle, Saxony.

Jun-30-08  BIDMONFA: Paul Lipke


Sep-23-11  zydeco: "Lipke acknowledges to have adopted Lasker's style in the art of shaping the game according to the individuality of the opponent....Socially, Herr Lipke is of pleasing, gentlemanly manners. At the board he is rather impulsive and in moments of excitement he gives expression to this natural impulsiveness by moving in a hasty and jerky manner, but that only on occasions of momentary forgetfulness."

- Literary Digest, Vol 10

Good blindfold player. Became a master by winning the minor tournament at the Dresden Congress, 1893.
