  Gejewe: Sad news from Belgium. On february 28, 2016 Jozef Boey died in Vosselaar where he resided a large part of his life,at the age of 81. The obituary can be found at : (In Dutch/Flemish)
<GrahamClayton> : The game Dely-Boey made an impression in the Netherlands in 1974. When I remember this rightly, it was played in the 1st round of the IBM tournament, international master section and was published in the newspapers alongside the report. Boey was ready for 11.Qxg7 Bf2+!! 12.Kxf2 Qd4+ 13.Kg3 0-0-0 with a strong attack, as given in the notes. I had the pleasure of facing "Jef" over the board in 1981, in the Liege open in Belgium. An extremely gentle person and a strong chessplayer. RIP Jozef Boey
