  whiteshark: <Player of the Day>

"He was South African Champion in 1937 (after a play-off) and <1947 (jointly with Wolfgang Heidenfeld)>. He took 15th at Dublin 1957 (zonal, Ludek Pachman won).

Dreyer represented South Africa in Chess Olympiads at Munich 1958, Tel Aviv 1964, Havana 1966, and Siegen 1970..."

<Benzol> could you please re-check the year of his 2nd South African Championship. :D

Jul-31-09  arctic tern: From the Wikipedia entry:

<Dreyer represented South Africa in Chess Olympiads at Munich 1958, Tel Aviv 1964, Havana 1966, and Siegen 1970 despite being deceased.>

Mighty impressive for a deceased player to score 5/10 at the 1970 Olympiad.

Jul-31-09  acolyte: <arctic tern> That's why he's Player of the Day. How many others can claim such a feat?
Jul-31-09  WhiteRook48: but he didn't die before 1970
Jul-31-09  TheaN: No, he didn't... 1981 > 1970... or am I really getting too sleepy over here? :D
Jul-31-12  LoveThatJoker: Kurt Dreyer, today you are remembered!

  TheTamale: Today's PotD lived long enough to see me graduate from high school, by a few months, at least, although I'm not sure that was his goal.
