Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-21-06  Tomlinsky: Peter Lee was a regular member of British national team 1965-1971 after winning the National Championship in 1965. He played in 3 Chess Olympics.

He is currently a British Grandmaster at the game of Bridge and has won various national competitions.

Nov-21-06  mack: I met him once. Don't think he liked me.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: According to Lee gave up chess because he contracted mumps. There is no source given for this information, nor is it clear whether chess was responsible for his contracting the illness.

  thegoodanarchist: No photo - too bad. Nothing beats having your photo on the internet ;)

  ray keene: <pb> i think his very young daughter in 1972 was a more plausible culprit-i played peter in a simul i gave last week at the athenaeum club in london-interesting draw tho i may have missed an advantageous possibility at one point.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <ray keene> Thanks; that does sound much more likely. Good to hear he still has some interest in the game.
Nov-23-06  ChesterTheJester: Lovely guy, used to be my Dad's bridge partner. (If you know the answer!) What level would you say he plays at Mr Keene?
Premium Chessgames Member
  ray keene: peter had the ability to become a good im-his wins v parr and wade from the 1965 british championship which he won are outstanding-not sure they are up here?

LEE, Peter Nicholas

  whiteshark: Another game (Peter Nicholas Lee – David J. Mabbs , 1964) you will find in CN 3754
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Is this also Peter N. Lee ?

It is said that he was working as 'scientist' for the British Tabaco Industry, denying the danger of passive smoking...

Nov-21-07  Jack Kerouac: Robert Wade is co-author with O'Connell (I believe) of the excellent book: The games of Robert Fischer. All games played up to The Spassky match.
Really a must for any chess player as many of the more interesting games have commentary or short notes. It may be out of print, but look for it and buy it regardless of what condition it might be in.
Nov-21-07  ChesterTheJester: er... that may well be Peter considering where he used to live and his profession.
Nov-21-08  brankat: Happy Birthday Peter!
Oct-22-12  wordfunph: "Fischer watched myself and Larry Evans play bridge. He watched for about 20 minutes and left the room. Only later was I told that he didn't know how to play the game."

  Tabanus: di Felice has him unrated and ending 35th in Portsmouth 1976:, but that must be P J Lee?
Nov-21-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Peter Lee.
