Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-29-15  zydeco: I saw the following in an article about chess and violence:

"In 1954, the Argentine Chess Federation called off the national chess tournament after a player, Pedro Martin, punched a referee. He was banned from Argentine tournaments for a year. Twelve other masters joined Martin in a protest over the judging, so the national championship was cancelled. (source: New York Times, Dec 1, 1954, p. 45)"

It sound like a great story.....surprised I haven't seen anything else about it on the web.

There's nothing else online about Martin, although he was evidently strong enough to hold Efim Geller to draws in all three of their games at the 1954 USSR-Argentina match.

This player or Pedro Martin?

Aug-03-17  Eagle41257: This one, Argentinian.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: Do you have a source, even his FIDE card has 1932:

Aug-03-17  Eagle41257: Sonas says this:

Take into account that he played both for Argentine in matches and in Argentinian championships. He can't be Columbian or there is some third Pedro Martin.

  Stonehenge: has games from 2001 but there's a huge gap between 1972 and 2001 (I'm sure that 1996 games isn't by him), so Sonas may be right.
