Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-08-05  MUG: A good, solid performance from Pert in the 15th European Chess Team Championships this year for England, managing to go undefeated. Probably not set to become a super GM or anything, but still a very talented young player with a bright future.

Can usually be found writing the occasional article for Chess Monthly.

I suspect that the 1962 game above is a different 'Nicholas Pert'.

  HeMateMe: Is he related to the drummer for Rush?
Mar-25-15  Raisin Death Ray: <HeMateMe> No, he's the guy who invented shampoo! Also, Rush Limbaugh doesn't even HAVE a drummer, nimrod!!!
Aug-11-15  AsosLight: How it happens that the two brothers despite being twins have such a notable rating difference?
Aug-11-15  Tomlinsky: One is probably a better player than the other, I imagine.
Aug-11-15  AsosLight: The question is why since they are identical and grew in the same environment.
Aug-11-15  Tomlinsky: Different interests, different motivations, different energies, different personalities, different goals, different paths of life, different capacity, different conclusions, different enthusiasm for the game among other things perhaps?

Environment is one thing while how it manifests within an individual is another I would postulate. They weren't hot-housed like the Polgars, for example, and even there differences in rating and achievement arose.

Dec-03-15  waustad: Another set of chess playing twins, like the Atlas brothers and Marta Bartel and her sister Ewa. I won't even try to spell their original name.
Jan-22-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Nicholas Pert.
