Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-04-06  irir: Game 1 is mistaken ID Arinbjorn (Arnold) Gudmundsson was born 22/05/1932. I'm not sure about the games in 1982 & 1984 either. I'll ask him when I see him next. Arnold is a retired member of the Logan City Chess Club and still occassionally pops in. In his hay day Arnold represented Iceland in the 1956, 1958,1960 & 1962 Olypiads and competed at Reykjavik in 1953, 1955, 1957, 1960, 1964 & 1969. He was good enough to be an IM or even a GM, but never sought a title. He resigned fron the Iceland Team and Immigrated to Australia.

  Benzol: Arinbjorn Gudmundsson has kibitzed at this site as User: Gudmundsson

He has also played the legendary Bobby Fischer in a game that made it into the latters' "My 60 Memorable Games".

Please note that I have submitted a correction slip regarding the 1962 Jon Gudmundsson - Stoltz game which apparently has both players incorrectly named.

  Calli: <Benzol> Game 1 here against Duchamp is Jon Gundmundsson. Was a correction slip submitted in 2006 by irir? :-)

  Benzol: <Calli> I don't know if <irir> has submitted a correction slip but I don't think it would hurt if another was submitted. Would you do the honours?

  Jonathan Sarfati: Nice obituary in Icelandic, which is easy to translate online http://hrokurinn.is/andlat-arinbjor...

Arinbj÷rn Gu­mundsson was married to Ragnhei­ur BryndÝs Jonsdˇttir, and they had two children, daughter Kristjana Arinbj÷rnsdˇttir (b. 1961) and Gu­mundur Arinbj÷rnsson (b. 1962). They moved to Australia in 1970.

Note that the last name in Icelandic is not a surname but usually a patronymic (occasionally matronymic). But after he moved to Australia, he deferred to the Western customs and used the patronymic as surnames. E.g. on this site he called himself "Gudmundsson", and in conversation referred to his old chess colleagues as "Palmason" and "Ëlafsson", although in Iceland they would be referred to by their given names first, Gu­mundur and Fri­rik (Gudmundur Palmason, Fridrik Olafsson). Arinbj÷rn usually went by the name "Arnold" in Brisbane.

I think he would easily have been an IM under today's conditions. He often came to my old club, the Logan City Chess Club, and was an interesting conversationalist.

  Jonathan Sarfati: Nice obituary in Icelandic, with good pics as wellŚit is easy to translate online http://hrokurinn.is/andlat-arinbjor....

They moved to Australia in 1970.

Note that the last name in Icelandic is not a surname but usually a patronymic (occasionally matronymic). That's why his own parents also had different last names, Gu­mundur Bj÷rnsson and Gu­munda ┴g˙stsdˇttir.

But after he moved to Australia, he deferred to the Western customs and used the patronymic as surnames. E.g. on this site he called himself "Gudmundsson", and in conversation referred to his old chess colleagues as "Palmason" and "Ëlafsson", although in Iceland they would be referred to by their given names, Gu­mundur and Fri­rik (Gudmundur Palmason, Fridrik Olafsson).
