Luis Augusto Sánchez (1917*–1981) a Colombian chess master. In 1951 he won in Caracas (zonal) and was awarded the IM title the same year.

He was six-times Colombian Champion.

* some sources have 1916

Feb-14-11  BishopsPawn: The last 4 games listed (1991-2002) must be incorrectly attributed, as he died in 1981!
Oct-01-16  zydeco: Pachman describes Sanchez as always playing "all-out for a draw." There's a good story connected to this game: L A Sanchez vs Pachman, 1959
