|Dec-27-04|| ||Benzol: Peter Dely
Born 5th July 1934 in Sarospatak
Awarded the IM title in 1982 he was Hungarian champion in 1969.
|Jul-05-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Peter Dely|
|Jul-05-08|| ||bravado1: I think it was Dely who played a very important game against Honfi, where black sacrifices a pawn for initiative in the early stages of the Sicilian. This pawn sacrifice was later successfully adopted by Kasparov in the world championship match against Karpov and in other games. Unfortunately, I can't find that game (Honfi-Deli) in this database.|

|Sep-17-14|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: The Hungarian name “Dely” would be pronounced like the English “day”.|
|Mar-27-19|| ||Nosnibor: At 65 years of age is he the eldest player to obtain the Grandmaster Title ?|
|Mar-27-19|| ||Fusilli: <Nosnibor> He was awarded the "honorary" GM title. Recipients of the honorary title were retired (or at least way past their prime) by the time they received the award. A number of them were surely older than Dely was at the time he received his.|
<From 1977 until 2003, FIDE awarded honorary Grandmaster titles to 31 players based on their past performances or other contributions to chess.

Lifetime achievement awards for glorious deaths also tend to be awarded late in life.
|Mar-28-19|| ||Fusilli: <CHC> I don't follow. I don't think any of these was given posthumously.|
|Mar-28-19|| ||ChessHigherCat: It was a joke, forget it.|
