|Sep-13-08|| ||myschkin: . . .
According to Bill Wall he was a civil servant, like other chess masters e.g. Oldrich Duras , Wilhelm Hanstein or Philip Stuart Milner-Barry .
|Dec-03-08|| ||brankat: The Bio says he was London Champion in 1951. At the age of 70!?|
|Apr-15-10|| ||morphyesque: Bruce Hayden wrote an appreciation of E G Sergeant in the March 1962 issue of the B.C.M. Edward Guthlac Sergeant had only retired three months (before his death) from his life's work at the Inland Revenue where he had been awarded the O.B.E. mainly for his textbook "Sergeant On Stamp Duties" which at the time had been a standard reference book.He was born on 3rd December 1881 at Gateshead, Co.Durham.His cousin P.W.Sergeant is most famously remembered for his books of collected games of Rudolph Charousek & Paul Morphy.He played in the British Championship held in London in 1907 where at the age of 25 he tied for second place with J.H.Blackburne, R.P.Michell and G.E.Wainwright.Sergeant apparantly never lost a single league match game during the seven years he played for the Metropolitan chess club.He was not quite up to the great H.E.Atkins standard for in the following year, 1908 at Tunbridge Wells, he could only finish in 7th position with 5 1/2 out of 11 (this was in the days before chess professionals predominated.)Hayden finished his obituary quoting a lovely game EGS played as black against the Rev.W.C.Palmer.It is a Q.G.D.(Pillsbury Attack)in which EGS gives up a pawn for the initiative and ends up with a Q.sac at move 26 mating white at move 28 with a rook.A truly splendid game!|
|Aug-31-10|| ||Dredge Rivers: Any relation to Sgt. Rock?|
|Jan-07-12|| ||timhortons: no, sgt pepper.|
|Nov-17-13|| ||RedShield: Good luck correctly pronouncing his middle name.|
|Nov-19-13|| ||JonDSouzaEva: St. Guthlac came from Crowland, where Sergeant was born (he was not born in Gateshead). See http://lincoln.ourchurchweb.org.uk/...|
As for the pronunciation - I would go for something like "goothlark", but without much emphasis on the "r".
|Jul-28-15|| ||morfishine: One thing I like about E G Sergeant is he seemed to never stop getting better. In his early days, he lost a number of "shorties" to admittedly, upper-tier players. But as the years went on, the short losses dropped in frequency and wins became more common as well as draws against the very best|
|Jul-28-15|| ||zanzibar: He is pictured in a 1925 club group photograph here:|
(Scroll down to 2nd picture - Middlesex County Team - English Champions 1925)
|Jul-29-15|| ||morfishine: <zanzibar> Great Photo(s)! The 1st photo is priceless|
|Jul-29-15|| ||zanzibar: Of course, thx to John Saunders for everything on his site.|
|Dec-03-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Edward Sergeant.|
|Aug-07-18|| ||Nosnibor: He also competed in the 1960 British Championship at almost 79 years of age and after 6 rounds stood with 1 win and five draws.Tiredness then seems to have set in has he lost his next four games and had a draw in the final round.|
