Keith Richardson was Britain's first CC Grandmaster and was considered by ICCF as one of two ''really outstanding''English players of the second half of the 20th century. Keith's CC achievements were finishing equal thrid in the World Championship finals VII and X. He was the only player to defeat the winner, Estrin, in the former of these finals. Keith also achieved two Olympiad final bronze medals with Great Britain between 1972 and 1982. Perhaps one of his best tournaments results was to finish second in the strong Bertl Von Massow Memorial. Keith was a dedicated member of the British CC Natcor but he was also a formidable over the board player, still playing until his untimely passing. His club, Camberley, now organise an annual rapid play event in his memory. Keith actually played in the XI Student chess Olympics in Krakow in 1964, so it is nice we have two Polish players represented in this memorial. Finally, EFCC are delighted and honoured that Keith's friend and former opponent, XI World Champion, Fritz Baumbach is taking part as well. Enjoy the tournament and play in the spirit of Amici sumus!
