  Jonathan Sarfati: Graham George Haase (1930-26 April 2011) was a former New Zealand Chess Champion, winning the title in 1961/2 ahead of such strong NZ Championship winners as Ortvin Sarapu, Arcadios Feneridis, James Rodney Phillips, Richard John Sutton, Roger Ambrey Court His good record in other tournaments earned him the New Zealand Master, and for his decades of service to the Otago Chess Club he was made a Life Member. He was also a Vice-Patrons of the New Zealand Chess Federation.

Strong like Michael Roy Freeman (Correspondence Senior International Master) and National Master Tony Dowden say that Graham was very generous with his time to younger players, as they were by comparison. See also "Graham Haase RIP" http://chesschat.org/showthread.php...

  Richard Taylor: I remember that the 1960 / 61 NZ Championships was at the Auckland Bridge Club then located near the top of Airedale or Wellesley St, on Symonds St (Auckland). I recall Sarapu analysing games quite deeply. I was very impressed as I was new to chess and only 12. But it was either there or the next year (my father and I did go to Wellington one time to play in the "Reserve".): it was either there that I recall Graham Haase giving a long speech. I had the impression he had come last as he talked a long time about the vicissitudes of chess and so on and (I think) he was talking of all the other players who don't do so well, and in fact those who come last. It was because he talked about the Wooden Spoon. That was when I learned that expression. I was impressed by that speech. Without knowing Haase I liked the way he talked about that. It is rare for New Zealanders to talk much after a chess tournament, which is a pity.

I was fascinated perhaps as much by the way Haase spoke as what he spoke. But I forget if he actually DID come last. He won in Wellington.

But I vividly recall him talking.

Yes. I think my father and I went to the Auckland Bridge Club then on the corner of Airedale and Welesley streets it must have been 1962 when he won as he spoke to everyone about those who didn't do so well. He seemed to me even then when I was quite young to be thus a generous man.

If that is the tournament, I should consult Sarapu's book, that is the NZ Champs he won.
