Georges Stibal dies on May 1st, 2010

Our well known chessfriend George Stibal (born 1-8-1936) died on May 1st, 2010 after a massive stroke. My thoughts go to his family.

George were involved in the Correspondence Chess scene for more than 30 years, he was a Director of Play & Tournament Director for ICCF (he obtained the IA title as an Arbiter), he was also the CCLA International Secretary from 1992-2001.

He was also one of my very first opponents in a correspondence chess game...

The whole correspondence chess world lost a good friend.

As George still has 8 running games, I have to adjudicate it, but according to the FICGS rules, these games will not be taken in account for his last rating...

May he rest in peace! I had a game against him, a very interesting one.
