I heard yesterday that Les Kovacs passed away recently. He was a regular at the Norths chess club, who I recall playing in a tournament game many years ago. I don't recall the exact date of his passing away.

Rest In Peace Les.

Leslie (Laci) Kovacs late of East Lindfield, Sydney was born on 4th July 1923 and died on 20th June 2011 two weeks short of his 88th birthday.

I played Les in my latest tournament at Norths. He was a gentleman and strong competitor for many years.

A brief obituary appeared in my weekly Sydney Morning Herald chess column (Jan 1973-) on Monday 27th June 2011.
