|Paul Lipke was born 1870 in Erfurt, Germany. Although the title did not exist in his day, he was a player of grandmaster strength. |
He placed 3rd at Kiel 1893, 2nd after Siegbert Tarrasch at Leipzig 1894 and was 8th= at Vienna 1898. He drew a match with Johann Nepomuk Berger (+1, =5, -1) in 1896. He was considered the foremost blindfold player of his day, able to play 10 games simultaneously.
After the Vienna tourney he gave up playing competitive chess.

|Nov-27-04|| ||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.

|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.
