OccupationChess master

Roman Tylkowski was a Polish chess master.[1]

He was a well-known player in Poznań, Poland, in the 1930s and 1940s. He represented the city in 1934 and 1948 in the Polish Chess Team Championships.[2][3][4]


Tylkowski is probably best known for participation in the game Tylkowski Wojciechowski, Poznań 1931against Antoni Wojciechowski at Poznań 1931 in which Wojciechowski played his famous combination.[5][6] While the game is documented on many websites and is included in a well-known chess book (see references), there is some dispute regarding the moves in this game and whether it even occured.[7][8][9]
