Moishe Leopoldowicz Łowcki was brought up in Kiev, and then studied at its university. He took part in Third Russian National Tournament (1903) in Kiev taking 6-7th place (together with Evgeny Znosko-Borowski).
Łowcki studied in Germany and played in Germany events. In 1903, he was 4th of eight in the Dresden Saxonian Chess Tournament for amateurs; a year later at the chess festival in Coburg he took 2nd place. He performed successfully in subsequent tournaments: in 1910 he won the qualifying rounds in Hamburg, and in the main event he came in third in 14th German Chess Federation Congress (Hauptturnier C). In the same year at the Augustea Winter Tournament in Leipzig he divided 1-3 places, finally in 1911 he triumphed in an amateur tournament in Cologne. These results brought Łowcki gave him access to prestigious tournaments for the European leaders. In 1911 in San Remo, Łowcki took second place, also he was runner-up. In 1912, he took the 5th place at the gambit tournament in Abbazia (1912), won by Rudolf Spielmann. Later that year he was 12th in Bad Pistyan (1912) and 16th in the 18th DSB Kongress (1912). The All-Russian Championship (1914), St. Petersburg, Łowcki was 4th behind Alexander Alekhibe, Aron Nimzowitsch and Alexander Flamberg.
Łowcki lost two matches to Leonhardt in 1910 and 1913
In 1913 Łowcki settled permanently in Warsaw and was an active participant in the chess cafe life and 1910 -1915 were his peak years. Łowcki was the runner-up in the Warsaw City Championships in 1916 and 1917. In 1922 he lost a match to Flamberg, but after the First World War, his appearance in tournaments declined and were confined to Polish events.
He was arrested by the Gestapo in January 1940 and killed in a mass execution in Kampinos Forest.

|Nov-30-06|| ||Calli: Lowcki is the preferred spelling. For instance, see Chessmetrics http://db.chessmetrics.com/PL/PL237... or search the internet and you will more Lowcki references: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&... Chess Personalia by Jeremy Gaige also gives Lowcki as the main entry and "Lowtzky" only as a variation. |
The games Alekhine vs M Lovtsky, 1914 and Lovtsky vs Burn, 1912 also were played by Lowcki and should be combined.
|Nov-08-07|| ||Karpova: Information on Moishe Leopoldowicz Lowcki from "The Life and games of Akiva Rubinstein - Volume 1: Uncrowned King".|
He lived from 1881 to 1940 and was equal first (with Rubinstein) in the 1916 Warsaw Championship and came in second the next year. Lowcki was arrested by the Gestapo in 1940 and perished in a concentration camp later that year.
He played a match against Rubinstein in Warsaw in 1916 and lost 0.5-2.5 (this was the play-off from the Warsaw Championship).
All that is preserved from this three games match is the following:

|Jan-29-09|| ||Karpova: From C.N. 4887
<On the strength of his score at San Remo, 1911 Łowcki finished top of a list of ‘Masters’ Averages, 1911’ on pages 209-210 of "The Year-Book of Chess, 1912" by E.A. Michell (London, 1912)>
This is the crosstable of San Remo 1911: http://xoomer.alice.it/cserica/scac...
He was the runner-up behind Fahrni and scored 7.0/10 (+5 -1 = 4). As you can see it was not that bad a tournament with Przepiorka, Gunsberg and the young Reti among others. Still, those ten games were enough to make him top that list with 70 % out of 10 games. For sure, even the author of that list admits that this is a bit strange and concludes that Schlechter's score is probably the best overall (though not the highest) with 65.09 % (53 games, 34.5 points).
|Sep-08-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Lowcki and several other Jewish chess players (Przepiorka, Frydman) organised a tournament in the Warsaw prison where they were imprisoned, which was won by Lowcki.|

3-4. W Preiswerk
The tournament is also here http://www.edochess.ca/tournaments/... but in the WSZ is written <Leonhardt, der einen Zähler vorgegeben hatte,> which seems to indicate that he started with a -1 score and so ended up on shared 3rd-4th place, though he acquired as many points as Lowcki and Möwig.
