Feb-02-07  juccal: Legendary player Rodrigo Flores passed away last january 17 at 93, brilliant engineer was member of the Chilean science academy and many years teacher at Universidad de Chile. Eleven times Chilean champion the most succesfull champ ever, played with most world Champions from Capablanca to Fischer. A very consistent player belongs to the brilliant generation of players that also included Mariano Castillo, Rene Letelier and Enrique Reed among others. Rest in peace master, i bet you are playing with Rene and Mariano in eternity.

  zanzibar: A nice obit (in Spanish) here:

There is a nice 3-picture view of him as youthful, middle-aged, and old-aged man.

<He left established an almost insurmountable brand, eleven national chess titles: 1931, 1935, 1938, 1941, 1944, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1956, 1961 and 1965 participated in three World Olympics representing Chile, 1939 in Buenos Aires 1950 in Dubrovnik (ex-Yugoslavia) and 1956 in Moscow.>

For the record: <Benzol> apparently omitted 1938, 1951, and 1952 championships (but not the bio - see above).

Aug-23-17  lentil: Such successes but no title?
