Bad Altheide (Polanica Zdrój) 1926
Reichenbach (Dzierżoniów) 1928

<<Z chwilą powstania Schlesischer Schachverband na terenie Dolnego i Górnego Śląska rozgrywane są śląskie kongresy szachowe. Niewiele wiemy o tych turniejach. W 1923 w Bytomiu wygrywa A. Kramer po dogrywce z Erteltem (Katowice). Kolejny kongres w 1924 roku odbywa się w Bad Salzbrunn (Szczawno Zdrój). Wspólne zwycięstwo odnoszą A. Kramer i W. Bergmann; ten drugi zwycięża play - off. W 1926 roku kongres w Bad Altheide (Polanica Zdrój) kończy się zwycięstwem Saemischa przed Machate, Bergmanem i Kramerem; ponieważ Saemisch uczestniczy w turnieju jako "gość honorowy", tym samym tytuł mistrzowski przypada Machate. W kolejnym roku gospodarzami kongresu są Gliwice. Wspólne zwycięstwo odnoszą L. Schmitt i M. Foerder. Championem zostaje Schmitt ze względu na lepszą punktację dodatkową. Kolejne dwa miejsca wspólnie dzielą <<R. Pitschak>> i G. Machate. Dalsze miejsca zajmują Kramer, A.Babel i Sikorski (nic nie wiemy o tym jedynym w przedwojennym Wrocławiu szachiście o jakże polskim nazwisku, a w szczególności, ile polskości było w jego korzeniach rodzinnych). W 1928 roku kongres odbywa się w Reichenbach (Dzierżoniów). Zwycięża w nim G. Machate przed H. Foerderem, <<R. Pitschakiem>>, A. Kramerem. Dalsze miejsca zajmują O. Ruster, Sikorski i Vogel >>

  Phony Benoni: The <Chess Life> crosstable for the 1953 US Open in Milwaukee gives Pitschak's city as Cleveland, so he must have immigrated before that time. Information available through a search at this link:

http://ssdi.rootsweb.ancestry.com/c...

shows his last known address was in the Cleveland area.
