Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-16-13  optimal play: <<It is with feelings of profound regret (remarks the Melbourne Weekly Times) that we record the death of Mr. William Tullidge, which took place at his residence, St. Kilda, on Saturday, the 30th ult.

The late Mr. Tullidge was one of the best chess players in the colony [Victoria].

He was a prize winner at the Intercolonial Chess Congress at Adelaide Australian Championship (1887) and subsequently at the Intercolonial Chess Congress held in Melbourne in 1888 Australian Championship (1888)

He played a bold and manly game, and excelled in the skilful use he made of his pawns.

He was a generous opponent, and never made lame excuses when he lost a game, but acknowledged gracefully that he was beaten by superior play.

He was a great enthusiast, and was always ready to play with anyone. His genial and kindly disposition made him a favourite with all those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance.

The late Mr. Tullidge was a commercial traveller for many years, and was well known to chess players in all parts of this colony and also in New South Wales.

He played in a number of intercolonial matches between Victoria and New South Wales and South Australia, and was almost invariably successful.

His loss will be severely felt by the chessplayers of the colony [Victoria], and especially by the members of the Melbourne Chess Club, of which he was a member for very many years.>
