Re: Keith Richardson

Sad news. Keith was a gentleman in every sense. I will have two abiding memories. Our first game, in which he was down to 5 minutes after about 10 moves, and mated me with his flag hanging. Then much later as team mates in the ...

Re: Keith Richardson

Keith was of course a Correspondence GM. He was indeed. A genuine GM CC too, long before that title became ridiculous. I remember looking in awe at Keith in my CC days, 70s-early 80s. Only Penrose was his CC match A realy ...

Re: Keith Richardson

The following tribute is by Andy Walker, President of the Nottinghamshire Chess Association: Keith was in my class at Nottingham High School, and luckily also in my house, so I never had to face him in house matches! The stuff on the Web is all about his chess; more on ...

Re: Keith Richardson

Before deciding to concentrate on postal chess, he was a very promising OTB junior player.

Maybe the tale of how he got "swindled" in an almost unique way by his Swedish opponent in a student event can be left for a while ;)

Re: Keith Richardson

Keith was of course a Correspondence GM.
He was also a strong otb player, representing England several times in Senior international team tournaments.
He was also invaluable in ECF investment matters.
A realy sad loss to our chess society.
RIP

Re: Keith Richardson

Sad news - I hoped when I played him that League chess would be too quick for him, but it wasn't. He was indeed a very modest and sporting opponent.

Re: Keith Richardson

That is sad news indeed. I played him in a 4NCL game this season, and had played him a number of times in recent years. The first time I played him, I was very impressed when someone told me of his correspondence chess achievements. The picture of him on the Barclays website from that time is a nice...
