Apr-22-05  Shokwave: And the question is: who was Jago? We have two wild KGA correspondence games from him ...anyone got any more info?
Apr-22-05  the quiet man: I think he was M.E.M. Jago ... flourished in English Correspondednce and Problemist circles in the 1950s and 1960s ... but can't remember any more.
Apr-22-05  Cecil Brown: Chessbase has him as Maurice Jago.

I think this game is in Tim Harding's book "64 Great Chess Games" if anyone has it?

There is an S.Jago on the ICCF rating list, but he's Australian so is probably unrelated.

Apr-22-05  PivotalAnorak: Honest Jago ?
Apr-25-05  the quiet man: Honest as the Jago's long ... but what or who is "Honest Jago"?
Apr-25-05  PivotalAnorak: <Perhaps the most interesting and exotic character in the tragic play "Othello," by William Shakespeare, is "Honest" Iago. Through some carefully thought-out words and actions, Iago is able to manipulate others to do things in a way that benefits him and moves him closer toward his goals. He is the main driving force in this play, pushing Othello and everyone else towards their tragic end.>

He attended Penzance Boys' Grammar School and qualified as a doctor at London University in 1927. He lived in Sutton, Surrey, for many years, but played for the Cornwall Correspondence team at the top of the order and won prizes for both composing and solving chess problems.
