|Dec-28-04|| ||Benzol: Kurt Dreyer
Born 31st July 1909 in Bielefeld
Died 29th September 1981 in Johannesburg
South African Champion in 1937 (after playoff) and 1945-46 (joint).
|Jul-31-09|| ||whiteshark: <Player of the Day>
"He was South African Champion in 1937 (after a play-off) and <1947 (jointly with Wolfgang Heidenfeld)>. He took 15th at Dublin 1957 (zonal, Ludek Pachman won).
Dreyer represented South Africa in Chess Olympiads at Munich 1958, Tel Aviv 1964, Havana 1966, and Siegen 1970..."
<Benzol> could you please re-check the year of his 2nd South African Championship. :D
|Jul-31-09|| ||arctic tern: From the Wikipedia entry:
<Dreyer represented South Africa in Chess Olympiads at Munich 1958, Tel Aviv 1964, Havana 1966, and Siegen 1970 despite being deceased.>
Mighty impressive for a deceased player to score 5/10 at the 1970 Olympiad.
|Jul-31-09|| ||acolyte: <arctic tern> That's why he's Player of the Day. How many others can claim such a feat?|
|Jul-31-09|| ||WhiteRook48: but he didn't die before 1970|
|Jul-31-09|| ||TheaN: No, he didn't... 1981 > 1970... or am I really getting too sleepy over here? :D|
|Jul-31-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Kurt Dreyer, today you are remembered!
|Jul-31-12|| ||TheTamale: Today's PotD lived long enough to see me graduate from high school, by a few months, at least, although I'm not sure that was his goal.|
|Sep-12-14|| ||MissScarlett: Out of the frying pan, into the fire.|
