  Gypsy: Schifferdecker-Gumprich (1957, Neustadt), White to play bungles instructively:

White played <51.Nd6 Bd3 52.Nxe4+ Bxe4>, assuming this being a draw. Alas, <53.Kf2 Kf4 54.Ke2 Ke5 55.Ke3 Kd5 0:1> was a win for Black.

  Calli: <Gypsy> Very funny. Is this Forrest Gumprich? Hey Forrest, patzer is as patzer does. :-)

  Gypsy: My guess is on Kurt Gumprich.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Gypsy> is right. It's <Kurt Gumprich>, * 21.04.1904 15.10.1971

"Gumprich was one of the stronger German postal masters of the 1940s and early 1950s. He won the third section of the Dyckhoff Memorial with 6.5/8 ahead of strong masters including Lucius Endzelins."
