Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-09  atripodi: British FM and Grandmaster of problem solving.
Dec-18-12  wordfunph: Lee was the 2nd Briton to achieve the GM Solving title after GM Jonathan Mestel.
Jun-04-20  Cibator: Seems to have gone inactive and suffered a marked drop in grading in the last few years (see ECF Grading Database). Something bad happened?
Apr-13-21  Nosnibor: <Cibator> Apparently I heard that he may have been suffering with depression. He appears to have played his last serious game on the 25th April 2017. On the 2nd November 2016 I played him myself in a drawn league match game. After this he only played two more games. He did teach chess at Oakham School and organised the visit of Kasparov to give a simultaneous display there back in 1997.
Apr-13-21  Muttley101: I'm sorry to hear that Graham may be suffering from depression. It is a horrible illness. I remember his easy-going affable nature from tournaments in the seventies and eighties. If it possible to pass on best wishes to him, please do.
Jan-05-22  gdlee: Happily I'm not suffering from depression. Instead I retired from chess to teach and play bridge. One of my last games was a draw v GM Hebden - a good way to finish!
