- Do you know the name Zytogorski? - Bent Larsen in 1973 asked readers of the Russian "64" weekly in his article
"Too long analysis"; it was a translation from a Canadian chess journal.
- And Crosskill? They both lost a lot of time in attempts to prove that "Lolli position"...

Wieza, goniec - wieza

       ... is won. In 1843 Zytogorski after 22 moves reaches the position, in which he proudly claimed that black rook was lost after another 40 moves!
In 1864 Crosskill published detailed analysis and, reaching a critical position, declared that White would forcibly capture the rook at move 55.
       And yet, despite later analyses by Breyer and Takacs, "Lolli position" remains drawn particularly, because Kling detected a mistake (in the 20. move) in the old, good Zytogorski analysis.
       However, there is a more serious reason for the headline: TOO LONG ANALYSIS. For the majority of masters it is sufficient to be in doubt. Long analyses are full of errors and omissions.
       Reading Larsen's article (published years ago) I replied myself: how on earth could I know who was Zytogorski?!
       The clipping from "64" ended up in my archives, and after the quarter of century became a starting point for a small historical research. Despite a lapse of time and serious holes in documentation, a strong chessplayer came to light, with great analytical and practical power, whose achievements were eclipsed (among Polish players) only by Simon Winawer after his sensational appearance in Paris in 1867.

       Stanislaw Gawlikowski in his monumental "Chess Endings" (Warsaw 1954, pp. 919-920) gives the following analysis of the diagrammed position:

W, goniec - wieza

1. Kc6 Rh6+ 2. Be6 Rh1! 3. Rb7+ Ka8 4. Rb2 [4.Rg7 Kb8! 5.Bf5 Rh6+ 6.Bg6 Rh8! 7.Kb6 Kc8! 8.Be4 Rh6+ 9.Bc6 Kd8 =] 4...Rc1+ [4...Ka7! (Berger)] 5. Kb6 Kb8 6. Bf5 Rc4! 7.Rb5 Rh4 8.Kc6+ Ka7 9.Bd3 Rf4 10.Rb7+ Ka8 11.Rg7 Kb8! [J. Kling's move; now White obtains nothing; while after 11...Rf6+? 12.Kc7 Ka7 13.Re7 arises the position given by L. Zytogorsky (sic! - T.L.) in 1843, where White is able forcibly either capture the rook or mate the king in circa 40 (!) moves, if something may be called "forcible" in so many moves...].
Spelling of the name (L. Zytogorsky) indicates that the author, a deep erudite in historical matters, was not aware he was quoting the analysis elaborated by his compatriot. And another small correction: Zytogorski didn't publish results of his work in 1843, but - as we know thanks to Mr Ken Whyld, who sent us some copied pages of "The Chess Player's Chronicle" - from December 1841 till September 1842.

The Polish chess encyclopaedia by W. Litmanowicz and J. Giżycki ("Szachy od A do Z", Warsaw 1987, vol. 2) gives the short note on the chessplayer who: after the fall of November-Uprising emigrated from the country and settled down in England

       The most complete information about Adolf Żytogórski (it's the right spelling, pronounce ZHYTO - GOORSKY) are available (it isn't an exceptional case) in the obituary I am quoting below in full:
       In Adolph Zytogorsky there has passed away a player of considerable eminence, who but adverse circumstances would have achieved a far higher reputation among the masters of the game. His name has been for many years so little before the public that it may be even unknown to the younger generation; yet it is one of those which ought not be altogether forgotten. Mr. Zytogorski died on the 27th of February in the German Hospital, Dalston, at the age of 75. He was one from the numerous band of Polish refugees who, after the ill-starred rising of 1831, overspread the capitals of Western Europe. Like too many of his fellow-exiles, he passed his long life in poverty and obscurity. If Fortune was unkind to Zytogorsky, it is but fair to Fortune to say that he had opportunities of bettering himself which he was too much of Bohemian to turn to account. He is believed to have passed the greater part of the last half-century in England, but was occasionally heard of in Germany.

       In the earliest volumes of the "Chess Players's Chronicle", 1841-2 a few of his games are recorded; and he contributed a valuable analysis of the problem of Rook and Bishop against Rook, partly reproduced in Staunton's "Handbook". His conclusions on this point, like those of Philidor, were too favourable to the attack; and they were partially corrected by Kling and others. He was, indeed, a master alike of the theory and practise of end-games; he conducted endings, whether of Pawns or Pieces, with the accuracy of a Szen, and published many ingenious positions. In 1843 he played a match with Staunton, then at the height of his strength and reputation, receiving a Pawn and two moves, and won six games right off the reel. Others, who were less successful at these odds, rose in time to be acknowledged first-rates. Staunton suppressed all mention of this match; and, as long as he controlled the Chess organs, nothing more was heard of the winner. George Walker, who was always ready to bring to light whatever merit Staunton sought to obscure, does not mention him in his "Chess Studies" of 1844; a fact which must now remain unexplained. Zytogorsky was befriended by the late Mr. Brien, who succeeded Staunton as Editor of the "Chronicle" in 1854-56; and Brien, after his quarrel with Staunton, published for the first time the particulars of the above match.

       In those years we find Zytogorsky taking part in various matches and tourneys at Kling's Chess Rooms in New Oxford Street, and at the "Philidorian". In the "Chronicle" for 1855, p. 204, he is described as "a veteran who opposed, in 'auld lang syne', such Chess warriors as Staunton, Buckle, and Perigal in upwards of three thousand games". He won a short match of Brien by the odd game: but in a pool or triangular duel between Brien, Falkbeer, and Zytogorsky, Falkbeer was the victor. Many of his games appear in this series of the "C. P. C.", as well as in the next which followed after an interval in 1859-62; but for the last twenty years we have scarcely met with his name in the public prints. Among his recorded casual games we find several with Harrwitz, both won and lost: a win of Anderssen in 1851, a draw in 1861, but no mention of total scores. Enough has been said, it is hoped, to justify the opinion that Zytogorsky, if he had been in position to assert himself, would unquestionably have taken a high place among the masters of European reputation.

"The British Chess Magazine" 1882, pp. 141-142.

       Correspondence with Mr Michael Adamski from London helped to clarify some details. I asked him whether the passage: he had opportunities of bettering himself which he was too much of Bohemian to turn to account euphemistically covers Żytogórski's partiality to drinks with a high alcohol content. Mr Adamski, with a truly English sense of humour, answered: A necessary but not sufficient condition.
He also wrote the building of the ex-German Hospital (London, Ritson Road) still exists but does not serve for health service any more. The hospital was: opened in 1845 for poor (underlined by me - T. L.) natives of Germany and of German-speaking countries. The idea was put forward by the Prussian Ambassador Freiherr von Bunsen and his English wife. (...) In the 2nd World War (...) together with all the other Germans in England, the staff were interned and British people took their place. The German Hospital thereafter became an English hospital.

("London Encyclopaedia", 1990)

       For the sake of historical truth it must be said that the English authors Keene and Coles in their book "Howard Staunton, the English world chess champion" (St. Leonard on Sea, 1975, p. 6) claimed Żytogórski's total score of Staunton may not be so favourable as was stated by W. Wayte:

       In April 1841 Staunton played a match with Zytogorski, a Pole three years his senior who had fled to England after the 1830 revolution. Staunton gave him odds of Pawn and Two Moves, evidence of his increasing strength. In the "Chess Player's Chronicle of 1854, when R. B. Brien had taken it over the editorship, the match was erroneously ascribed to 1843 and it was said to have been won by the Pole 6-0, which is manifestly untrue as the surviving scores are 2-1 in favour of Staunton. Brien was notoriously unreliable and, further, his dislike of Staunton often led him to pervert the truth, as P. W. Sergeant pointed out in his "Century of British Chess".

According to E. Winter ("Chess Explorations", p. 137), according to G. H. Diggle, on the p. 363 of the
November 1855 "Chess Player's Chronicle" R. B. Brien wrote:

During the Michaelmas week an impostor appeared in Huddersfield under the name of Mr Zytogorski, who has not left London for a long of time. A similar fraud was perpetrated, we hear, at Leamington and in other parts of Yorkshire. Our country readers cannot be too much on their guard against such an imposture.
The last information on Adolf Żytogórski, I was able to find out, came from the Manuscript Department of the Warsaw University. The family of Mr Robert Bielecki, the author of the unfinished "Biographical Dictionary of November 1830 Uprising' Officers" who died in 1999, transferred there all issues not used. Żytogórski's card says his role in the November Uprising, e.g. military rank and a name of the troop, is unknown. In 1837 he was a member of Towarzystwo Demokratyczne Polskie (Polish Democratic Society). The same year he joined Zjednoczenie Emigracji Polskiej (Union of Polish Emigration), political organisation founded and administered by Joachim Lelewel. In 1844 Tsar Nikolai visited London. Żytogórski (with others) was offered an amnesty, but did not take it up.

He did not want to come back to the native country; either, because after 15 years of exile all his connections were broken, or, because he was afraid of not finding enough chances to play good chess on the Szachowa Vistula?
