|Oct-12-06|| ||franksp: I met Terrey Shaw at Sydney University in the 1960s. I used to go to the chess room in the University Union building. Sometimes I would play a game of ordinary chess but most popular at the Uni chess club seemed to be Kriegspiel.|
Terrey Shaw often came to the chess room. He was a nice bloke. I have only ever been a passing acquaintance of Terrey and, at the time, did not know what he was studying at Uni. But he became a well respected barrister as I later learned.
Sadly, Terrey succumbed to illness and died on 5 December 1997.
There is an annual chess competition in his memory, the Terrey Shaw Memorial Shield.
|Oct-12-08|| ||ozmikey: My old friend Terrey Shaw as player of the day! Colour me delighted.|
One of the best Australian players of the seventies and early eighties, and a truly kind, gentle, generous human being. He wrote a chess column for the Bulletin magazine for years, which was always witty and informative, one of the best in the country.
RIP Terrey...your untimely death in 1997 was a huge loss for the Australian chess community.
|Oct-12-08|| ||ozmikey: A small correction to the biography by the way: he was not, technically, Australian champion in 1978. It was a three-way tie (Robert Jamieson, Shaw and Max Fuller I think) and Jamieson won the playoff.|
Terrey beat Ian Rogers - later to be a GM - in a crucial last-round game.
|May-28-09|| ||myschkin: . . .
Terrey Shaw was hit by a ferocious prostate cancer.
|Oct-12-09|| ||Birthday Boy: Happy Birthday!!!Terrey Ian Shaw!!!|
|Dec-17-09|| ||GrahamClayton: <franksp>Terrey Shaw often came to the chess room. He was a nice bloke|
When I attended the Norfolk Island Chess festival in the mid 1990's, Terrey was the "expert" who came along to give us amateurs some advice.
The highlight of my chess career was winning the Best Game Prize at the 1994 Norfolk Island Festival. Terrey was the editor of the chess column in the "Bulletin" magazine, and he published my game in his column!
|Oct-12-11|| ||twinlark: Still missed. RIP Terrey.|
