"The tournament brings up an interesting point about the FIDE rating list. It seems its practically impossible to get a name changed in the list. Two of the players Andranik Matikozyan (his preferred spelling) is called "Matikozian" by FIDE and Jack Peters is still listed as John A. Peters, a name he hasn't used in more than 20 years."
Today (2009) there is no John Peters in the FIDE list. The above games should be transferred to Jack Peters.
Some of the games by Peters belong to Jack Peters:
K Shirazi vs Peters, 1984 is most well known.

|Jul-21-13|| ||WCC Editing Project: Good evening.
Does anyone have a copy of <Chess Life, December 1994>?
If you do, would you please look on <page 40> to check this quotation from <IM Jack Peters>, who I believe is <John Peters>?:
<" Lasker had noticed signs of uncertainty in Steinitz' handling of "simplified" middlegames, without <<<Queens.>>> Recognizing the champion's superiority in managing a full army of pieces, Lasker deliberately sought early Queen exchanges. This strategy certainly worked in Philadelphia.">
We are fact checking this citation in an effort to edit Lasker-Steinitz World Championship (1894).
So we need to know if this Peters quote is actually on page 40 of <Chess Life, December 1994>.
|Aug-04-15|| ||zanzibar: He wasn't always known as Jack, here's an early reference I found:|
<Curdo dominates tourney
Boston Globe (1960-1983); Jan 12, 1969; pg A_96
At the M.S.C.A. Christmas tourney, which had a healthy 52 players [...]
Jackie Peters won first junior prize.>
|Aug-04-15|| ||Phony Benoni: I can only offer observation and experience, not documentation, so I realize this doesn't count. But John. A Peters and Jack Peters are undoubtedly the same person,|
In fact, since both the FIDE player card and USCF player page give <Jack Peters>, there is probably a good case for a name change,
|Aug-04-15|| ||zanzibar: <Phony> Yes, I don't think I ever saw him other than as Jack Peters. At least, as far as chess was concerned.|
|Aug-05-15|| ||zanzibar: I have to amend my statement just above.
The early press would use both John and Jack (and Jackie).
I post more later, after I give it another run-through.
|Feb-10-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Jack Peters.|
