Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-10-18  Delboy: One of the most colourful characters I have met in the eccentric chessplayer fraternity.

Trying to make a living from chess, he played in many South African tournaments in the 1980's (when that country was internationally boycotted) under the pseudonym "I Dawson". This was however discovered by the Zimbabwe chess federation, whereupon he continued playing in South Africa under a second pseudonym, "IDA Snow" (an anagram of "I Dawson").

No longer able to represent Zimbabwe after the 1984 Olympiad, he became board 1 for Guernsey from 1986-1990

Here is a page that includes some pictures of him:

There are several reports stating that he has passed away prematurely, but I have no more details

Do you mean he was expelled from the chess federation, or did he emigrate?
