|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.
|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.
|Feb-19-15|| ||zanzibar: <zydeco> yes, for the blindfold (see below). But the Master's title came in 1892's Congress.|
As for blindfold:
New Zealand Herald, Volume XXXI, Issue 9551, 30 June 1894, Page 4
<A new aspirant to blindfold chess honours has appeared at Berlin. P. Lipke recently played eight games in four hours, and won the lot. He also conducted 10 games simultaneously, winning nine and losing one, in five hours.>
|Feb-19-15|| ||zanzibar: This must be the same Lipke, as the <Lipke of Halle> referred to on p384 of BCM v12 (Sept 1892).|
One of his best tournaments should then be his first place finish (6/8) ahead of Kruger (of Berlin, 5/8) in the <Haupt-Turnier> section of the DSB-07 in Dresden, 1892.
He qualified for the German Master title with his tournament win.
Too bad we don't have any of his qualifying games from Dresden DSB Main Tournament (1892).
(Haupt-Turnier = Main Tournament
Masterturnier = Master Tournament)
|Jun-30-16|| ||Paarhufer: Today, 146 years after Paul Lipke was born, Michael Negele published an extensive article about this man within his series on German chess players: http://www.schachbund.de/news/paul-...|
