|Dec-08-04|| ||Knight13: No kibitzing for Samuel Lipschutz yet? Then I am the first one! Since no history is recorden, acording to <Overall record: +38 -15 =23 (65.1%)*>, I say he was a chess master.|
Best results might be the drawn game played in 1902 against E Lasker and drew match against Blackburne in 1889.
|Jul-04-05|| ||Knight13: Happy birthday, Samuel Lipschutz! Today, you are 142 years old! (if you are still alive)|
|Jul-04-05|| ||aw1988: Um, no. (DUH...)|
|Oct-23-05|| ||Petrosianic: The bio of Lipschutz is in error here. Actually, he won the US Championship at New York 1889. Then lost it to Showalter in 1890. Got it back in the 1892 match, but retired undefeated and moved west. Showalter took the title back. Then in 1895, with Showalter as sitting champion, Lipschutz returned, challenged, and lost.|
His best result would have to be the +7-1=7 result against Showalter, and his +22-9=7 6th place result at New York 1889.
|Mar-31-06|| ||offramp: Is it Samuel or Salomon Lipschutz?|
|Apr-01-06|| ||Calli: <offramp> Nobody knows. Historians have been unable to discover his first name. You will see Simon, Samuel and Solomon. Unless the name is found, "S. Lipshütz" should be preferred, IMHO.|
|Jul-04-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Samuel Lipschutz|
|Jul-04-06|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: His name actually means "lip-protector" - he is called after some kind of make-up then heh? :)|
|Jul-04-06|| ||beatles fan: strange last name|
|May-15-07|| ||dixi82: His record against Marshall is impressive: 5-0
|Jun-26-07|| ||Petrosianic: Soltis claims that Showalter won a "short match" against Lipschutz, but I've never seen any details or game scores, not even on chessmetrics.|
Lipshütz" should be preferred, IMHO
It's also sometimes spelled Lipschuetz. The first Official US Champion is something of a mystery man. Nobody's quite sure about either his first or last name.

|Jun-26-07|| ||whiteshark: "Das hat Lipschütz nicht bedacht!" is still an ironic comment in German for a miscalculation.
A far as I know it was often used by Efim Bogoljubov|

|Oct-23-08|| ||Karpova: Jeremy Spinrad on page 12 from "Chess Disputes", April 2006: http://www.chesscafe.com/text/spinr...|
<In 1897, Lipschütz and Steinitz (and their respective clubs) engaged in a full-blown silly dispute over the Challenge Cup for the New York Chess
association. The Manhattan Club (supporting Lipschütz) was apparently
claiming the cup because the Secretary of the NYCA had mistakenly said that
the first win would decide the match, while the Staten Island Club wanted to
go by the written agreement, in which there must be two games played to
equalize the colors. Not surprisingly, Lipschütz had received White first. At
least, this is the version in the New York Times, August 18, 1897. The dispute dragged on, with players making a move, pressing the clock, and “winning” when the opponents failed to play under their rules, but it becomes too tedious to read about for long.>
