Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-05-08  brankat: A.Sacconi drew against Alekhine, Spielmann, Szabo. and defeated Gruenfeld. Not bad at all.
Feb-28-10  Prugno: "Conte" means "Count" (not much linguistic talent required to guess that one!) and is an aristocratic title, not part of IM Sacconi's name. According to chess historian Adriano Chicco, he was related to the architect Giuseppe Sacconi, who designed the famous "Vittoriano" monument standing in Piazza Venezia, the most central square in Rome.

On account of this, it would probably be better if dropped the middle letter "C" in his name and merely referred to him as "Antonio Sacconi".

Apr-06-10  sdrumovic: In my research on tournaments with italian players, I have found references to an 8-players Budapest 1936 tournament with Sacconi, Najdorf, Laszlo Szabo, Lajos Steiner etc.

Sacconi should also have participated in the 1937 Margate-B tournament, along with Najdorf again.

Also suspect of a match/tournament with Erno Gereben in Budapest 1935 and a participation in a minor event in Hastings 1935/36 or 1936/37 (possibly with Prins).

Unfortunately, I have no further details on these events. Crosstable, Ranking and dates would be very appreciated.

Oct-06-13  Karpova: Sacconi beat Mario Monticelli in a match in Venice, 1926, by the score of +5 -3 =2.

From page 263 of the August-September 1926 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

Oct-08-13  Karpova: 4th Crespi Memorial in Milan, 1926:

1. Sacconi 7.0
2. Padulli 6.5
3. Rosselli del Turco 6.0
4. Monticelli 5.5
5. Singer 4.5
6-7. Dr. Seitz 4.0
6-7. v. Patay 4.0
8. Rastrelli 3.0
9. Hellmann 2.5
10. Stalda 2.0

Monticelli was discouraged after a completely undeserved loss against Sacconi.

Dr. Seitz suffered from a cold.

Sani withdrew.

The Main tournament was won by De Alimonda fom Trieste.

From page 332 of the November 1926 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'
