Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-06-09  Karpova: Raaphy Persitz died:

< Persitz studied at Balliol College, Oxford, and represented Oxford University in the annual match against Cambridge University on three occasions (1954, 1955 and 1956). In 1954 he won his individual game in the Oxford-Cambridge match in the morning, playing very quickly in order to be able to travel by train to Swindon (some 75 miles away) in time to play top board for his county (Oxfordshire) against Gloucestershire in the afternoon. He was paired against a former British champion, Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander, and managed to win this game as well (British Chess Magazine, May 1954, p.150].

Persitz moved from UK to Israel, and then to Switzerland. He played for Israel at fourth board in 14th Chess Olympiad at Leipzig 1960 (+6 4 =2). In 1955/56, he tied for 6-7th in Hastings (Viktor Korchnoi and Fridrik Olafsson won). In 1958, he played in Haifa/Tel Aviv (Samuel Reshevsky won) and in 1961 tied for 7-8th in Netanya (Moshe Czerniak, Milan Matulovic and Petar Trifunovic won). In 1968/69, he tied for 8-10th in Hastings (Vasily Smyslov and Svetozar Gligoric won).>

Rest in Peace.

  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Raphael Persitz.
Jul-26-18  Nosnibor: Winner of the Ilford Whitsun Congress 1954 with 4/5 only losing to the runner up Peter Clarke. Also prolific writer for one of Britain`s chess magazines.R.I.P. Master Persitz.
Dec-19-18  Cibator: Noted in the 1960s for his occasional contributions to the regular "Winning Combinative Play" feature in the UK's "Chess" magazine. Names of players or events were nearly always lacking. B H Wood never actually said so outright, but sometimes dropped strong hints that the positions were composed.
