  Ron: I came across this player from using the random game feature. He seemed to be a very talented player--drew Rubinstein (though Rubinstein was probably past his peak), and deafeated Najdorf back in the 1930s. In my search to find out more about this player, I came across this interesting website:

  vonKrolock: Aug-24-06 vonKrolock: <Mibelz> What do You know about Antoni Wojciechowski It seems that he died young and that his famous game against Tylkowski is not enough documented...

Aug-24-06 Mibelz: <vonKrolock> Antoni Wojciechowski (6 June 1905 – 19 January 1938) was a foremost Poznañ (Posen) chess player in 1920-1930s. In 1926, he tied for 2nd-3rd in the Poznan championship. The same year, he won at the Poznan Chess Club Championship. In 1928, he won again in the Poznañ championship. Wojciechowski represented Poznañ at the Polish Team championships (1st at Królewska Huta (Königshütte) 1929, and 2nd at Katowice 1934). He took 16 th place in the 3rd Polish Championship at Warsaw 1935, and 11 th in the 4th POL-ch at Jurata 1937. He played for Poland at eighth board (+7 –2 =5 ) in unofficial Chess Olympiad at Munich 1936. He won team silver medal there.

  vonKrolock: <Mibelz> could You perhaps add something to that article's information on the Tylkowski vs A Wojciechowski, 1931 game?

no bio in Polish !?

Jun-22-10  Graham1973: I came across this player through Tim Krabbé's article. In a follow-up note he provided details of a 1929 Tylkowski - Wojciechowsk match (entry 327)
Oct-22-10  pionaki: i'd like to make my first comment in here because i was really fascinated by the above mentioned 1931 match, which i definitely believe that should at least be added as a notable game of antoni wojciechowski and thus give polish players more attention, who may not be as good as russians or jewish, but they are extremely creative on the chessboard. and also draw some eyes on the endgame, which many people consider to be very boring :)
Jun-02-11  Graham1973: I've been back to Tim Krabbes site and it seems that there may be a few more Antoni Wojciechowski games still out there (in addition to the 1929 Tylkowski - Wojciechowski match) in a publication called Dziennik Poznanski which is online at:

Jun-15-11  Graham1973: With Tim Krabbes help, one more game has been uncovered for this player from 1929, look for it at the next site update.
Jun-06-12  brankat: He did have some good games: against Rubinstein, Najdorf, Przepiorka, Spielmann, Foltys.
