Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-14-05  WMD: During the 2nd General Government Championship tournament held in Cracow & Warsaw, October 1941, Regedzinski played under the name Reger. It would be interesting to know whose bright idea this was.
Mar-15-05  TheSlid: <Regedzinski played under the name Reger> Lol - Thats just Pants
Aug-21-06  Mibelz: Born Polish (near Lodz), Teodor Regedziński was of German origin as his father.

He was a member of Polish team at four Chess Olympiads (1928, 1933, 1937, 1939) and unofficial Olympiad at Munich 1936. During the WWII, he had played - as Theodore Reger - in a number of chess tournaments, including the 7th German Championship at Bad Oeynhausen 1940, where he finished 10th.

Because of his linguistic skills (Regedzinski spoke Polish, German, Russian, English and French), he was appointed by the German Army as an interpreter.

Sep-13-07  Karpova: Born April-28-1894 in Aleksandrov Lodzki.

Regarding <Reger> - his family came from Germany and they had been named <Reger>.

He died August-2-1954

Oct-12-08  Karpova: You'll find an biography on (click on "Chess heroes" on the right side).

Excerpt: <As he came back to occupied Poland [after the 1939 Chess Olympiad; karpova] he decided to sign a volkslist, thus deeding over to his German roots and swearing off loyalty to Poland, which was considered to be a capital crime among Polish people. As Theodore Reger he had played in a number of chess tournaments under Nazi patronage, including 7th German Championship in Bad Oeynhausen in 1940, where he finished 10th. In 1941 he played in the Generalgouvernement Championship in Cracow, won by Alekhine. Generalgouvernement was allocated part of pre-war Poland's territory to receive a smitch of autonomy, still under strict Nazi control anyway. Because of his linguistic skills (he spoke Polish, German, Russian, English and French) he was appointed by the German Army as an interpreter.>

<His chess career hasn't been dazzling, his Olympic record looks flash though. He played 46 games overall, of which he won 26 and lost 6 (71.7%). He won three individual and three team medals. He was also a member of Polish team which took silver medals in Munich, at the unofficial Olympiad.

His contemporaries recalled him as a humble and passionate person and chess addict. He did a lot for development of youth chess in his home town. His playing style was described as positional and incisive in defence. He was well-known from his wide theoretical knowledge.>

RIP IM Regedzinski..

Jun-21-19  whiteshark: <He died from a heart disease.>

After the Second World War <Regedzinski> returned to Poland and was sentenced by the new communist government to four years in a labour camp for colloboration with the Nazis. He died in 1954 at the age of 60.

= = = Additional = = =

In Buenos Aires 1939 he played his 4th Chess Olympiad for Poland. In contrast to most of his teammates (the most famous example is M.Najdorf) he did not stay in Argentina, but returned to his wife and son in Poland occupied by Germany.

He signed up to the "People's List" (Volksliste) and renounced his Polish loyalty, which was made possible by his German father.
