    Serge Rubanraut RIP

    Serge Rubanraut who was awarded the lifetime title of Australian Master in 1976 by the Australian Chess Federation died at the weekend in Sydney.

    I knew Serge for over 40 years.

    He won the very strong 1976 Australian Championship which I directed in Sydney above Shaw, Kellner, Jamieson, Rogers, Hay, D.Parr, Koshnitsky etc.

    He played in the 1976 Haifa Olympiad.

    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.
