|Jul-30-02|| ||Sneaky: In 1978 Karl Podzielny played 575 games simultaneously in 30.5 hours. I believe that still stands as some kind of record.|
That's an average of 3 minutes, 10 seconds spent on each game! I have no idea what his final result was.
|May-16-05|| ||woodenbishop: At the 1966 Havana Chess Olympiad, several masters participated in a simultaneous exhibition of 6,480 boards.|

...and he did it for charity.
|Sep-10-15|| ||thomastonk: Between 1974 and 1986 he won the German Blitz championship 6 times, and after 21 years he won his seventh title in 2007. His nickname is or was Potz-Blitz. From 2007-2009 he won three German titles in Active Chess.|
I saw him often in the 1980s, and at that time he always drunk heavily. Last time I saw him in 2011; during that tournament, the arbiter decided to call an ambulance and she sent him to a hospital. Ad multos annos!

and died April 26, 2015.

|Aug-03-19|| ||Eastfrisian: R.I.P. "Pods-Blitz".|
|Oct-29-21|| ||ndg2: This guy was an extreme blitz talent, but he could have also easily be a gifted GM if he hadn't fell hard for the booze already at a younger age. Saw him personally in the late 80s, early 90s at a couple of blitz tournaments.|
|Oct-29-21|| ||MissScarlett: Who was that German GM from 15-20 years ago who was really hot on ICC? Used to battle Shirov for the top blitz/bullet ratings.|
|Oct-30-21|| ||perfidious: Seen that curse get its iron grip on too many good people.|
