|Jan-27-06|| ||mack: One of the nicest men you'll ever meet.|
|Jan-27-06|| ||Eric Schiller: I'm pleased to report that Stewart seems to have recovered nicely. He fainted during the opening ceremony here in Gibraltar, but was released from hospital yesterday.|
|Jan-27-06|| ||mack: <He fainted during the opening ceremony here in Gibraltar, but was released from hospital yesterday.>|
Oh dear, really? Is he okay? That's quite upsetting news.
|Jan-28-06|| ||Eric Schiller: <mack>He seems to be fine and has been helping me out at the Arbiter's course here, just taking it easy a bit.|
|Jan-29-06|| ||Karpova: <He seems to be fine>
it's good to hear that reuben is fine.
especially after i heard that carl was schlechter.
|Jan-29-06|| ||TheAlchemist: <Karpova> Lol. That's why he lost against Lasker, he was simply worse :-)|
|Oct-02-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Stewart also does restaurant reviews:
As well as giving guided tours of chess venues as well!
|Jul-09-11|| ||wordfunph: Stewart Reuben, the Director of the Hastings Premier Tournament, told GM Paul Motwani an amusing true story about two Russian girls. Girl A burst into tears, having just left her queen en prise against Girl B, who feels sorry for her and goes to ask the coach what she should do. The coach quite rightly says that he cannot give her advice; she must make up her own mind. B returns to the board, which is now drenched in the tears of A, and finally decides to capture the queen. The sobbing immediately stops, and
with a huge smile A plays the next move and announces 'Checkmate!'|

|Jul-25-13|| ||James D Flynn: I lost to Stewart in the !st round of a London Boys chamionship held at William Ellis school in Highgate rd adjacent to Hampstead Heath. That must have been in 1956 or 1957.I saw him frequently at various tournaments in the last 1950s and early 1960s. He returned to the UK from the USA about the same time I emigrated there in 1969. Thoroughly nice chap, I am glad to hear he is alive and reasonably well.|
|Nov-30-14|| ||MissScarlett: The December 1990 <BCM> (pp.528-29) has a 'Viewpoint' piece by Stewart:|
<I have met relatively few chessplayers who have impressed me as being vastly my intellectual superiors. Bent Larsen, Jonathan Mestel and Jon Speelman are examples with whom you will be familiar. It is also true that I have met few such people outside chess either. This may of course simply be insufferable arrogance or my lack of a wide circle of acquaintances. However commonsense and experience suggest that indeed chess ability is highly specific.
What then is the basic equipment needed to be a good chessplayer? A reasonably high standard of intellectual intelligence comes first. Larry Evans suggested that an IQ of 130 should be enough to become a strong grandmaster.>
For the record, I've never met Stewart Reuben.
|Nov-30-14|| ||offramp: I'm gonna meet that man. I'm gonna make that list.|
