Mar-07-10  Cardinal Fang: Dieks was second to Tony Miles in the 1974 World Junior Championship.

Dutch Wikipedia gives his date of death as December 20, 2004.

  GrahamClayton: Was Dieks another one of those players who either showed great potential as a youngster, but whose career never really "took off", or did he decide not to concentrate on chess as a full-time career later in life? Dieks died at the relatively young age of 48 - does anyone know the cause of death?

  whiteshark: "When I went throw the years 1971-1974 [Chess Results, 1971-1974 by Gino Di Felice] the name <Roy Dieks> came back to my memories and this young man was in the early seventies a huge talent,who came second to Miles in the Manila world junior championship of 1974. He also won the 1971 Dutch junior championship but I found it a great pity that there are no more records than only the name 15 year old winner <Roy Dieks>."
