Early life[ edit ] Lipnitsky was a childhood companion and chess rival of David Bronstein in Kiev. Lipnitsky served in the Soviet Red Army , fought in the Battle of Stalingrad , and was decorated four times. This earned him the Master title. Efim Geller , who later earned the Grandmaster title, was second. Lipnitsky did not do anywhere near as well in the next two Soviet Championships, however.
Legacy and style[ edit ] Lipnitsky never got the chance to compete internationally in an individual tournament, missing out on the chance to earn international chess titles. Very few Soviet players got the chance to compete internationally during those years, and invitations were controlled by the USSR Chess Federation.

By the chess standards of the 21st century, with Ukraine now an independent nation since , Lipnitsky was certainly of International Master standard, and likely Grandmaster level.

They had one daughter Liana June 2, - April 12, During WW2, he served as a corporal in an anti-spy unit.
