  FSR: The poor guy didn't even make it to the chessic age of 64, as Fischer, Staunton, Steinitz, Planinc, Mednis, Vladimir Savon, C.H.O'D. Alexander, Oscar Troianescu, Maximilian Ujtelky, Paul Tautvaisis, Claude Bloodgood, and Karl Marx had.

  FSR: Korchmar has only one game in the database that he didn't lose. But it's a beauty. E Korchmar vs E Poliak, 1937
