Sliwa won the championship of Poland six times. In 1946, he won the first Polish Chess Championship after World War II in Sopot (5th POL-ch). In 1948, he took 3rd in Kraków (6th POL-ch; Kazimierz Makarczyk won). He won the Polish championship four consecutive times in 1951-1954. He won his last title at Wroclaw 1960 (17th POL-ch). One of Sliwa's most famous games is his win over Bronstein in the Immortal losing game. He played for Poland in seven Chess Olympiads:[1]} 1. d4 f5 {David Ionovich Bronstein, born February 19, 1924 in Belaya Tserkov was one of the strongest and most imaginative players to emerge from the talent-rich Soviet Union. Moscow champion five times 1946, 47,53,57 and 68, shared the first place in 1961 with Leonid Alexandrovich Shamkovich . Bronstein twice shared the USSR Championship, in 1948 [rusbase-1] with Alexander Kotov and in 1949 [rusbase-2] along with Vasily Smyslov. In 1950 he won the Budapest Candidates http://www.mark-weeks.com/chess/495... to earn a match for the World Chess Championship against Mikhail Botvinnik. After twenty-two games Bronstein led the match and needed just one point from the last two games to win the title. Alas, it was not to be as Botvinnik won the twenty-third game and held the draw in the final game to tie the match and retain his crown.} 2. g3 {The "Immortal Losing Game" is a chess game between the Soviet grandmaster David Bronstein and the Polish International Master Bogdan Sliwa played in 1957 in Gotha. The name is an allusion to the more famous Immortal Game between Adolf Anderssen and Lionel Kieseritzky. The game acquired its name because Bronstein, in a completely lost position, set a series of elegant traps in an attempt to swindle a victory from a lost game, although Sliwa deftly avoided the traps and won.} g6 3.
