  Benzol: Andreas Dueckstein
Born 2nd August 1927 in Budapest
He was Austrian champion in 1954, 1956 and 1977.
Mar-09-05  mcgee: Unusually, an IM with wins over three world champions (Euwe, Botvinnik and Spassky). Can anyone top this? He also has three wins over Larsen.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Can anyone top this?> Yes, I think Rashid Gibiatovich Nezhmetdinov has a good claim to be better.
Mar-10-05  mcgee: Nezhemtdinov has more aggregate wins over world champions, but according to the database he only defeated two world champs (Spassky and Tal).

  whiteshark: He wrote a small book <Meister der Turmendspiele (1890-1914)>*, Wiener Schacherlag, no year of publication. It contains 50 ...♖endgames, chronologically listed.

I wonder if there is a continuation?

* <Masters of rook endgames> for those who don't speak Austrian. :A

Sep-19-08  DoctorD: No continuation.

It would be a wonderful coup for someone to come out with one. It is a wonderful book, I was lucky enough to find a copy last year.

  whiteshark: <DoctorD: No continuation.>

That's a real shame!
It seems we have to do it on our own.

Feel free to post your games/suggestions/ideas at my forum.


Aug-02-09  WhiteRook48: IM a winner against three world champions

  Phony Benoni: <whiteshark: He wrote a small book <Meister der Turmendspiele (1890-1914)>*, Wiener Schacherlag, no year of publication. It contains 50 ♖ endgames, chronologically listed. I wonder if there is a continuation?>

I would imagine a book on ♖ endgames would be more likely to have a prequel.

  wordfunph: oldest participant 85-year-old IM Andreas Dueckstein (2221) scoring +1=8-0 in the European Seniors Team Championship in Rogaška Slatina.

Aug-02-12  lentil: <IM a winner against three world champions> Were they WCs when he beat them? [I have a win against an IM. But he was only 10 years old at the time...]
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <lentil> Botvinnik was the only reigning WC whom Dueckstein defeated, though this game, played that same year, was also a shocker (A Dueckstein vs Euwe, 1958).
Jul-13-15  waustad: Looking at his FIDE card he is still quite active. He's now playing in the European Senior Team Chess Championship in Vienna for the team Wien 75+. At least he didn't have to go far.
Jun-27-16  diagonal: <waustad> Dückstein, turning ninety next year, is the oldest player at the current World Team Championship 50+ & 65+ (2016) in Radebeul near Dresden, he is playing for the team of Vienna 1.
Aug-02-17  diagonal: The Austrian chess legend, IM Andreas Dückstein who has beaten Botvinnik as reigning World Champion, Euwe and Spassky, turns 90 today: Health and Happiness to you!
