|Dec-28-04|| ||Benzol: Andreas Dueckstein
Born 2nd August 1927 in Budapest
He was Austrian champion in 1954, 1956 and 1977.
|Mar-09-05|| ||mcgee: Unusually, an IM with wins over three world champions (Euwe, Botvinnik and Spassky). Can anyone top this? He also has three wins over Larsen. |
|Mar-09-05|| ||Benzol: <Can anyone top this?>
Yes, I think Rashid Gibiatovich Nezhmetdinov has a good claim to be better. |
|Mar-10-05|| ||mcgee: Nezhemtdinov has more aggregate wins over world champions, but according to the database he only defeated two world champs (Spassky and Tal). |
|Aug-02-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Andreas Dueckstein|
|Sep-19-08|| ||whiteshark: He wrote a small book <Meister der Turmendspiele (1890-1914)>*, Wiener Schacherlag, no year of publication. It contains 50 ...♖endgames, chronologically listed.|
I wonder if there is a continuation?
* <Masters of rook endgames> for those who don't speak Austrian. :A
|Sep-19-08|| ||DoctorD: No continuation.
It would be a wonderful coup for someone to come out with one. It is a wonderful book, I was lucky enough to find a copy last year.
|Sep-20-08|| ||whiteshark: <DoctorD: No continuation.> |
That's a real shame!
It seems we have to do it on our own.
Feel free to post your games/suggestions/ideas at my forum.
|Aug-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: IM a winner against three world champions|
|Aug-14-10|| ||Phony Benoni: <whiteshark: He wrote a small book <Meister der Turmendspiele (1890-1914)>*, Wiener Schacherlag, no year of publication. It contains 50 ♖ endgames, chronologically listed.

I would imagine a book on ♖ endgames would be more likely to have a prequel.
|Apr-05-12|| ||wordfunph: oldest participant 85-year-old IM Andreas Dueckstein (2221) scoring +1=8-0 in the European Seniors Team Championship in Rogaška Slatina.|
|Aug-02-12|| ||lentil: <IM a winner against three world champions> Were they WCs when he beat them? [I have a win against an IM. But he was only 10 years old at the time...]|
|Aug-02-12|| ||perfidious: <lentil> Botvinnik was the only reigning WC whom Dueckstein defeated, though this game, played that same year, was also a shocker (A Dueckstein vs Euwe, 1958).|
|Jul-13-15|| ||waustad: Looking at his FIDE card he is still quite active. He's now playing in the European Senior Team Chess Championship in Vienna for the team Wien 75+. At least he didn't have to go far.|
|Jun-27-16|| ||diagonal: <waustad> Dückstein, turning ninety next year, is the oldest player at the current World Team Championship 50+ & 65+ (2016) in Radebeul near Dresden, he is playing for the team of Vienna 1.|
|Aug-02-17|| ||diagonal: The Austrian chess legend, IM Andreas Dückstein who has beaten Botvinnik as reigning World Champion, Euwe and Spassky, turns 90 today: Health and Happiness to you!|
