Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-06-06  fja4: This seems pretty even. Did Samisch run out of time??
Sep-06-06  Runemaster: In a tournament that same year, Samisch lost all of his games on time; so yes, there's a good chance he did.
Sep-06-06  Resignation Trap: THIS was that tournament: .
Sep-07-06  Runemaster: <Resignation Trap> I wondered about that. Samisch's profile here on <chessgames> says that in 1969 at a tournament in Linkoping, he lost all 13 games on time. Your link shows a tournament in 1969 in Buesum where Samisch lost all 15 games. Are they the same tournament?
Sep-07-06  percyblakeney: <Are they the same tournament?> Nope:
Sep-07-06  Runemaster: That's what I thought. So poor old Samisch had two absolute shockers in one year!
Sep-07-06  RookFile: I was surprised to see that Saemisch was still around in 1969.
Nov-21-06  naamloos: In 'The King' with articles written by Donner also contains one about the 'old man'. Donner does not mention Samisch' name, but it is pretty obvious that he is indeed talking about him.

Donner describes how 'the old man'in a tournament Donner was participating in won the first game in good fashion, but after that lost all games due to time. In almost all of those games Samisch was doing allright untill he simply stopped moving and eventually lost on time.

He further describes him as a man smoking broken sigars in his pipe, saddened by the wars, which he was lucky to survive. I don't have the book by hand, so I don't know exactly what else Donner had to mention abou Samisch.

When the aging Larsen (by irony of the fate ?)played a tournament around 5 years ago in SouthAmerica he lost all his games.Often right out of the opening.As e.g.he went 1.e4.-a5.Right 1.-a5?
Been there,done that ;)
