Apr-22-17  Nosnibor: Sad news just learned that Keith passed away recently following a long illness. Played him once sometme in 1967 when the game was drawn Always a gentleman and became a very strong C C player
Apr-26-17  Nosnibor: Further to my recent post Keith was playing in a tournament in Cannes when after three rounds he was forced to withdraw through illness and return home where he died a few days later on the 10th April. He leaves a widow Sandra and two sons. There are many tributes to him on the English Chess Forum.
Apr-27-17  Nosnibor: In 1962 he won the British Junior Championship with 8/11 Some five years later I met him in a club match when I played top board for Leicester against Nottingham.

  ChessHigherCat: You wouldn't be J K Robinson by any chance? I know the name Nosnibor from the character in Erewhon.
Apr-28-17  Nosnibor: <ChessHigherCat> That is my name and I am surprised that as you are from Costa Rica that you have read the novel"Nowhere"by the Victorian author Butler. I promise that I was not aware of the original connection!

  ChessHigherCat: Hi Nosnibor, You knew about "Erewhon" and "Nowhere", right? I'm an American expat and I've never read so much since I've been here, even though the bookstores are terrible, thanks to and amazon kindle (no this is not an ad:-) I've always traveled a lot and before it was a big problem trying to lug around a lot of books and dictionaries but now they're all on my hard drive. Anyway, cheers, and I didn't mean to pry, I just couldn't resist when I saw your handle and read your post.
Apr-28-17  Nosnibor: This is definitely not Keith Richardson playing black in this game but some novice. During 1960 he was attending Nottingham High School studying for his A Level Examinations. In August of that year he played in my home town of Leicester by competing in the British Boys Championship where he finished 5th equal on 8/11.
Apr-28-17  Nosnibor: In my last post I am referring to the 1960 game that he supposedly played against Koltanowski.

  GrahamClayton: Richardson had a lengthy career with Barclays Bank in London, which gave him the stability required to devote his time to top-level international CC.
