[what is this?]

Miguel Farre Mallofre was a Spanish IM (1959) whose promising career was cut short by business commitments. He played in two World Junior Championships in 1953 and 1955 and in 1957 he was 2nd= in the Spanish Championship. He was 5th= at Madrid 1957 and 4th= at Torremolinos 1961. He played in the Olympiads at Munich 1958 and Leipzig 1960 and scored well in both events.

  whiteshark: Player of the Day

Never heard of him before. Maybe he gave up chess when he was 25.


Feb-23-09  WhiteRook48: and for once I don't have something to say about the player of the day

  whiteshark: That's a turn-up for the books. :D

  Penguincw: Happy Birthday!
Feb-23-12  BlackSheep: Player of the day hasn't played for 54 years , i hope this new variation he's been working on is worth the wait , and i guess it wouldn't hurt to echo Peinguincw in wishing Miguel many happy returns of the day on your 76th birthday . (and I know I'm an hour late before someone tells me I got my dates wrong)
Feb-23-12  BlackSheep: HaHa , due to time-zone issues I'm not an hour late after all or maybe I'm stuck in some kind of stasis I'm not really sure , it'll come to me .
Sep-21-21  kereru: His death slipped under my radar... the bio is not accurate, his career wasn't "cut short", he made a conscious decision to concentrate on his career as a pianist and music professor. He still played for his club after giving up his international chess career.
