Vitaly Alexandrovich Chekhover was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia on December 22, 1908. He is remembered today primarily as a composer of endgame studies, especially knight endgames, but he was also a strong over-the-board player. He played in the USSR Championship many times. He became an International Master of Chess in 1950 and an International Master for Chess Composition in 1961. He was Leningrad champion in 1937 and 1949. He died on February 11, 1965 in Leningrad, Soviet Union. (Note that Leningrad, Soviet Union is the same place as Saint Petersburg, Russia.) Yuri Lvovich Averbakh was born February 8, 1922 in Kaluga, Russia. His first major success was first place in the Moscow Championship of 1949, ahead of players such as Andor Lilienthal, Yakov Estrin and Vladimir Simagin. He became an International Grandmaster in 1952. In 1954 he won the USSR Chess Championship ahead of players including Mark Taimanov, Viktor Korchnoi, Tigran Petrosian, Efim Geller and Salo Flohr. In the 1956 Championship he came equal first with Taimanov and Boris Spassky in the main event, finishing second after the playoff. Averbakh's other major tournament victories included Vienna 1961 and Moscow 1962. He qualified for the 1953 Candidates' Tournament (the last stage to determine the challenger to the World Chess Champion), finishing joint tenth of the fifteen participants. He also qualified for the 1958 Interzonal at Portorož, by finishing in fourth place at the 1958 USSR Championship at Riga. At Portorož, he wound up in a tie for seventh through eleventh places, half a point short of advancing to the Candidates' Tournament. His most famous result, although certainly not his best result, was in one of the strongest chess tournaments in history, Zurich 1953: There he defeated Keres, Najdorf and Euwe. He is still alive and is the world's oldest living grandmaster.Language Notes:
