|Dec-19-08|| ||whiteshark: Happy Birthday.
Jusefs Petkevich (born 19 December 1940, Riga) is a Latvian chess Grandmaster.
|Dec-19-08|| ||whiteshark: He won in Riga Championship in 1967 with fantastic result (13 points from 13 games). He tied for 1st-3rd at Pärnu 1967. He thrice shared 1st in Latvian Chess Championship (1969, 1974, 1985)|
Petkevich was awarded the International Master (IM) title in 1980, and the GM title in 2002 for winning the 12th World Senior Chess Championship at Naumburg 2002.
|Mar-30-10|| ||DiscoJew: I once spent an evening with this man without even realizing fully who he was. He taught me the Nimzo Indian, Queen's and Bogo Complex as well as the Sicilian Four Knights for black for free, over 3 or 4 hours. I was blown away; we communicated fast and he seen how quickly I grasped his ideas...he was nice enough to share his wisdom and experience with me. Thanks!|
|Dec-19-11|| ||BIDMONFA: Jusefs Petkevich|
|Apr-26-15|| ||zanzibar: I believe he matches the <URS Cup (1970)> player listed as <Петкевич>.|
-- Beware <Петкевич> google translates to <Pyatkevich>, and not <Petkevich>.
He's also listed in the Soviet <Chess Encyclopedia Dictionary> as receiving the <Master of Sports> title in 1967 under the name <ю. Петкевич>.
|Apr-26-15|| ||zanzibar: BTW- there are a plethora of alternative spellings given on his wiki page:|
<Juzefs Petkēvičs (Jusefs Petkevich, Josef Petkevitch, Józef Pietkiewicz)>,
none of which match my google translate of his presumed Cyrillic name.
