Carl Schlechter (1874-1918) was a Viennese player who was ranked in the top 5 in the world. The most quiet of all grandmasters. Known as the "Drawing Master" as he drew half of his 700 tournament and match games. In 1910, he drew a match with Emanuel Lasker. All he needed to do was draw his last game, but he lost it and the match. Some view this match as a world championship match. He may have starved to death in Budapest during the war-imposed famine in Central Europe, never mentioning to any of his acquaintances that he needed money or food. He was found in a room without any money, heat or food and died at age 44 of pneumonia.
