Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-21-06  Mibelz: Franciszek (Frank) Sulik lived, before WW II, in Lvov (Lviv, Lwów, Lemberg). He played at reserve board in the 8th Chess Olympiad at Buenos Aires 1939, where Polish team (Tartakower, Najdorf, Frydman, Regedziński, Sulik) won silver medal.

In September 1939, when the war was broke out, he had decided like many other players to stay in Argentina. Then, Sulik migrated to Australia, where he won seven times the South Australian Championship.

  GrahamClayton: Sulik scored 7/13 at Buenos Aires in 1940, followed by 8/17 at Mar Del Plata in 1941. Sulik then left for England where he enlisted in the Polish Army. He would take part in the Allied advance through Italy.

Jul-23-10  ozmikey: Sulik was still playing in the Australian Championship in 1980, at age 73...and he made a quite reasonable score (+3=4-5).
May-15-11  SvetlanaBabe: I'll never forget his almost picket fence score in the 1976 South Australian Championship.I watched his last round game when he graciously drew quickly with his relieved opponent. He was obviously an IM strength player well into his senior years.
