<mifralu>, <Tab>

Great posts brahs.

Whilst relaxing with the <History of the Ballarat Chess Club> , I was wondering who the heck "Teters" was.

<Arturs Teteris>

I just ran across some games he played in his Latvian career, which I will upload soon.

I am wondering about this game here:

W Hasenfuss vs A Teters, 1942

Why are two Latvian players competing in the Lithuanian championship I wonder. It's certainly possible, but as usual this game has been uploaded without a source tag- this has to stop. Pgn submissions without source tags should not be published.

Sadly, <rusbase> does not seem to have an entry for the Lithuanian championship for 1942.

On the bright side, just a few days ago they gave a facelift to their excellent website, with notices of new activity and new contact information.

They have added bright colors to the front page as well, blue red and green:

  GrahamClayton: Arriving in Australia in 1950, Teters was part of the great wave of post-war immigration of Baltic chess players who enlivened Australian chess in the ensuing decades. He won what is now recognised as the first Australian Open in Melbourne in 1953, before settling in Ballarat in 1954, where he joined the Ballarat Chess Club, becoming President and winning multiple club championships. His other OTB achievements included winning the Victorian country championship in 1958, and the Victorian State championship in 1965. Teters was also a strong and active CC player, winning the Victorian Correspondence Chess championship in the 1950’s and representing Australia in a CC Olympiad.
