Oct-19-08  Gala: Jacek Bednarski has died today. He was my great friend and coach.
Oct-19-08  parisattack: The Bednarski-Bobotsov variation of the Sicilian Najdorf served me very well! He played some great chess, called too soon! R.I.P.
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Met him on several occasions.A nice and gentle man.Chesswise searcing for the truth,which often lead him into timetrouble.---One time I saw him spend almost one hour for the first (as black) move !..

R.I.P. Jacek.

Mar-12-09  sfm: Visited Denmark in the 80ies. His bald head, cigarette, energetic style, taste for time trouble and tactic positions made him a loved character. Had a single blitz against him. I wiped him off the board - or was it the other way around?
Mar-12-09  AnalyzeThis: In looking at some of his games, it does appear that either he got killed early, or he killed the other guy early in the game. A real fighter.

Fischer vs J B Bednarski, 1966

  wordfunph: "With flag hanging, his hand would move, spectators would watch in expectation then he would reach into his pocket for a packet of cigarettes. The next move was to place a cigarette in his mouth. His other hand would then make a move and out would come his lighter. Generally the flag would fall and he could then light his fag. In one game, he thought for over an hour over his fourth move as White in what was a book line in the Sicilian."

- Richard Furness (on IM Jacek Bednarski from British Chess Magazine May 2004)

rest in peace, IM Bednarski..
