  GrahamClayton: Partos emigrated to Sitzerland in the mid 1970's, and won the Masters Open tournament at the 1978 Biel Chess Festival. Co-author of "Etude systématique des échecs: avec 300 diagrammes" in 1978.
May-14-15  Eastfrisian: According to this: he died in 2015.


Jul-22-15  diagonal: He was a participant at the Interzonal, played in Biel 1985, representing the host nation (winning a qualifying Extra-Zonal of six players from Switzerland to decide who gets this wildcard Interzonal spot in a round robin all-play-all as clear first ahead of Huss, Hug, Trepp, Schauwecker, and Wirthensohn), and played in the 1980s for Switzerland at the Chess Olympiad.

Charles Partos won the <Master Open at Biel in 1978>, that year (contrary to 1977 and since 1979), there was no closed Invitation tournament: Maybe his biggest and most memorable success. The Master Tournament Open (MTO) at Biel is running annually since the very first Festival in 1968, the inauguration year of the International Biel Chess Festival.
